EXPERIENCE 1970s ROCK CULTURE!
Mom’s Apple Pie was a ten piece band who emulated the sound of Chicago and Blood Sweat and Tears.
While I’m sure that they were all fine musicians and they did reach some level of success; there are no notable songs or hits from this group.
However, in 1972 they did go down in Rock History with their debut LP cover art depicting a blouse-unbuttoned hottie in her apron offering up a scrumptious pie while licking her lips.
A very innocent yet provocative cover that went unnoticed – for a while.
Once censored, the clever artist used this negative to turn into a positive by pouring cement and closing off the “offending” area with barb-wire and driving the censorship home with the American flag flying proudly.
We now see tears flowing down her cheek as two cops peer/leer in through the back window.
Censorship overkill combatted with artistic overkill. Nice!
