Album photography

Out of respect for today apparently being the anniversary of that incredible photo shoot on Saunton Sands, North Devon, where Storm Thorgerson’s vision of ‘a river of beds’ was realised, today’s topic is rather obvious.

It took 30 helpers, two articulated lorries and three tractors to move 700 wrought iron beds (complete with bedding) to achieve that unforgettable cover for Pink Floyd’s A Momentary Lapse of Reason – on this day in 1987. Also necessary were two photographers, one dog handler, five dogs, two models, one microlite glider, two attempts (rain scuppered the first shoot) and just short of £50 grand.

As Storm Thorgerson explains in his book, Mind Over Matter: The Images of Pink Floyd, the scene was to be set up in LA, but for lack of desired bed style.

So I got to thinking about all those album covers now embedded in the brain, some iconic (like everyone’s favourite Beatles montage), some bordering on the ridiculous (like Si Zentner & His Orchestra’s – always to include eight exclamation marks, if you please – The Swinging Eye!!!!!!!!) and wondered just how many of the very best record sleeves owe their lasting appeal to camera work and careful positioning of props, rather than computer-generated genius. Forget the pop art collage, textbook diagram, and clever assortments of script laced with doodles and squiggles; I only care to consider for now a photograph which may well have been enhanced later but was, in essence, something first seen through a lens and captured for posterity’s sake (and hopefully a handsome fee). No gadgetry or gimmickry, just a photographer and his, or her, camera of choice.

I, as I’m sure you, recall many an orderly group portrait and collection of often pretentious artistes posing for dramatic effect, as spoofed in South Park (Season 7, Episode 9) with Cartman directing a shoot for his album cover with Christian rock band, Faith + 1. (Best South Park episode ever? OK, some other time.)

For whatever reason, these came to mind first:

– Bob Dylan, The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan
– Oasis, Definitely Maybe
– Bruce Springsteen, Born in the USA

Then, inevitably, I thought of those deemed to be unsuitable for public viewing and sold wrapped in plain brown paper, like a drunkard’s bottle of cheap cider:

– Blind Faith, Blind Faith
– John Lennon & Yoko Ono, Unfinished Music No.1: Two Virgins
– Roxy Music, Country Life

There are those that perhaps say more about the performer and his or her reputation than the actual album’s content:

– Eminem, The Marshall Mathers LP
– Fleetwood Mac, Rumours
– The Who, Who’s Next

Those with a carefully-choreographed shot of the people behind the music, as VH1 would say, who are very much aware of the camera and possibly in silly dress:

– Beatles, Beatles For Sale
– Blondie, Blondie
– George Harrison, All Things Must Pass

Or they’re being cool and most likely pretending to be unaware of the camera:

– Eric Clapton, Backless
– Neil Diamond, Home Before Dark
– The Libertines, The Libertines

Then there are those who are so obviously posing:

– Joni Mitchell, Hits
– The Streets, The Hardest Way To Make an Easy Living
– Travis, The Man Who

And perhaps the best of the bunch are those no-nonsense, all-action, hard-at-work snaps:

– Jeff Buckley, Grace
– The Clash, London Calling
– The Kooks, Inside In, Inside Out

Then you have the arty and/or downright bizarre, with models used in place of the performer for reasons sometimes best left unexplained:

– The Doors, Strange Days
– Mark Knopfler, The Ragpicker’s Dream
– U2, Boy

Those that try to say something about the music without showing the performer(s), preferring instead obscure, curious and seemingly random ‘things’:

– Blur, Parklife
– Paul McCartney, Run Devil Run
– Primal Scream, Riot City Blues

Not forgetting the beautiful, atmospheric scenes where performer, if included at all, is of secondary importance to the surrounding backdrop:

– Eagles, Long Road Out of Eden
– Echo & The Bunnymen, Heaven Up Here
– Van Morrison, The Philosopher’s Stone

What do you think: are any of these in any way more effective, memorable, or indeed suitable than something like, say, Tubular Bells or Bat Out of Hell? Analyse all you can bear, but sometimes you either like something or you don’t, and I’m keen to know which you do and which you do not.

The Resistance by Muse was voted Best Art Vinyl of 2009, with Manic Street Preachers’ (utterly horrid, sorry) Journal For Plague Lovers and Fever Ray’s self-titled album coming in second and third place respectively. None are photographs as such, but you can see the full list of 25 covers here.

Previous winners include the Fleet Foxes for their eponymous 2008 debut (part of Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s 1559 piece, ‘Netherlandish Proverbs’), Man’s Needs, Woman’s Needs, Whatever by The Cribs (in 2007), Thom Yorke’s The Eraser (in 2006) and Hard Fi’s Stars of CCTV (in 2005). Of these, only one is a photograph.

If you’ve an hour to wile away, remember: there’s always Sleeveface.

If you’re fortunate enough to have two hours to play around with, you may find this album atlas, compiled by readers of Word magazine and showing where many a record sleeve photo was taken, pointlessly educational… I know I did.

  2. Since the advent of CDs and all that has followed, much of the creative edge to album artwork has been lost.

    There were certain acts whose covers added to the music contained within. Thinking, Bowie, Roxy, 70s Queen, Floyd and Beatles. A lost era.

    1. I’d squeeze it in between Blondie and George Harrison (although then I’d either need to lose The Beatles or find another example for each of the other categories to satisfy my OCD).

      It does have ‘Eighties naff’ written all over it. I know it was a self-indulgent decade, but did everyone have images of themselves looking made up and coiffured on their covers in the Eighties? (I know, nobody need point out that David did…)

      As you know, I’m not a Peter Gabriel fan, but one image is stuck in my mind… and not just because you use it as your avatar. In case it’s not clear to others, it appears that his face is melting. One of Storm’s, I believe.

      I don’t feel it’s my place to have an opinion on an artist I know so little about, but I think artwork like that better suits someone like Peter Gabriel, as opposed to a slightly dull close up of the face. He’s always been different and experimental, after all. Same with Pink Floyd. What do you think? The So cover says nothing to me. Not that it needs to say anything, obviously, but when lined up alongside his other albums, it just stands out as being a bit boring.

      In fact, it does say something to me: Mainstream and radio-friendly. Maybe that was the idea?

      The photo used on Shaking the Tree manages to be interesting…

      I’d never seen the Up sleeve before. I like that a lot.

    2. Wow, that was quite an enthusiastic response. I realize that you are not a Peter Gabriel fan but I am; as such, I found your topic kinda interesting and so I thought it would be interesting to get your point of view on aesthetics if not the music.

      With all that being said, from all I’ve read and seen about Peter he doesn’t seem the type to do anything without some thought. I think you may be on to something about “radio-friendly-ness” though. At the time his first four albums were heavily experimental (much to my delight) and had matching album covers to boot. Those albums sold relatively well, however due to his ambitious WOMAD project he was seriously hurting for cash in the mid-80s. All of this leads me to believe that he was trying to make exaggerated “pop” hits with an album cover to match. If you look at the lyrics to the songs on that album… pretty powerful stuff, even if the music is (to some) a bit poppy.

      In sum, yes the whole “SO” project may be a bit… naff (I suppose) but I believe it was done that way on purpose.

  3. Will think about the album sleeves…

    But as this thread relates to Storm Thorgerson then take a look at/google his latest album sleeve for an album called ‘Someone Here is Missing’ by a band that have done it for me in recent years, The Pineapple Thief.

    It is an incredible sleeve and must have taken ages to create.

    1. Very nice, Pete. I hadn’t seen that before. What a great idea, especially with the lyrics written on the Post-it notes.

      The story of the photo shoot can be found here.

  4. The Beatles’ Rubber Soul album cover is the first cover that comes to mind, mostly because I’ve more recently learned about how the photo simply came to be. What I understand is that the camera began to fall just as the photo was being taken, hence the sort of stretched look. Something that simple and random. I could be wrong but I seem to remember the info coming from an interview with Ringo — though I can’t remember when or where! :))

    I’ve always liked the cover photos of The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan and Highway 61 Revisited. Nothing staged, just a moment in time.

    After looking over your in-depth, multi-categorized list I feel the need to ponder this topic further ~ maybe in the wee hours of the night. 😉 Until then…

    Peace ‘n’ love,
    Gabrielle

    1. Although very staged, Bob Dylan’s Bringing It All Back Home is another worthy of note. As with Ummagumma and several others, there’s lots to pick out, not least the LPs (one being one of Bob’s own).

    2. I do love that cover shot on Bringing It All Back Home. Staged or not, it’s very evocative and is still simply a photograph.

      I don’t think I have to tell you that I REALLY love the Ummagumma cover art. 8) It’s one of my favorites, actually! I was sticking with the single-photo theme per your “… No gadgetry or gimmickry, just a photographer and his, or her, camera of choice” directions. Silly me! :))

  5. Curious your source for today being the day of the beach shoot. My copy of “Mind Over Matter” doesn’t mention the date. Maybe you have a revised edition?

    1. Oh no, it’s just a random, unconfirmed piece of music trivia that I’d jotted down. I can’t say I care enough to bother anyone in order to get the date confirmed, hence the “apparently”, but it’s a terrific image regardless of when it was taken and just seemed to provide me with an excuse to blog about the many other photographs that have been used to grace record sleeves.

      I have been wondering, though: Does anybody care about, or even remember in much detail, book covers?

      Perhaps more voracious readers than I absolutely care how their books are presented (I care more about typos and wasted pages, personally). Of course, there is that saying about how you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. I wonder if anyone really judges an album by its cover…

      At the risk of sounding like Del Shannon, I’ll wonder no more.

    2. If a picture speaks a thousand words, then an image speaks a thousand pictures. Storm is a master at both. 😀

  6. The first one that comes to mind is “Wish You Were Here”, both photos.

    “The Delicate Sound of Thunder” has an unforgettable photo. Dire Straits “Love Over Gold” and Andrew Powell & the Philharmonia orchestra play The Best of the Alan Parsons Project are other ones that come to mind, I’m not sure they’re photos though?

    I did see a new copy of Country Life the other day on vinyl, it’s was sealed in clear plastic. It did catch my eye.

    Or they’re being cool and most likely pretending to be unaware of the camera:

    – The Nightfly – Donald Fagon
    – But Seriously- Phil Collins

    There are those that perhaps say more about the performer and his or her reputation than the actual album’s content:

    – Melissa Etheridge

    Then there are those who are so obviously posing:

    – Desperado – Eagles
    – Piano Man – Billy Joel
    – Desperate – Divinyls

    And perhaps the best of the bunch are those no-nonsense, all-action, hard-at-work snaps:

    – Made in Japan – Deep Purple
    – Head Injuries – Midnight Oil

    Then you have the arty and/or downright bizarre, with models used in place of the performer for reasons sometimes best left unexplained:

    – Eve – The APP
    – Pirates – Rickie-Lee-Jones
    – The Boys Light Up – Australian Crawl

    Cheers,
    snow.

  7. Interesting topic. 🙂

    These came to my mind immediately.

    Various kinds of portraits:

    Michael Jackson – Bad
    Sinead O’Connor – I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got
    Jimi Hendrix – Are You Experienced?
    Tori Amos – From The Choirgirl Hotel
    Rage Against The Machine (Just a detail of the very famous shot by Malcom Browne)
    Nirvana – Nevermind (a real underwater photograph by Kirk Weddle)
    Alice in Chains – Jar Of Flies
    Blind Melon

    Obscure or symbolic ones:

    Depeche Mode – Exciter
    The Cure – Three Imaginary Boys
    Pearl Jam (the avocado album)

    1. How could I forget Thriller, with its adorable tiger cub gatefold sleeve?

      Dangerous is my favourite Michael Jackson cover, though. I spent far too much time studying that when I should have been studying for exams.

      Blind Melon’s Soup was another I noted when browsing through my CD collection for examples, with the band’s name spelled out in Alphabetti Spaghetti. How sad that we didn’t get to enjoy many more albums from them.

    2. How sad that we didn’t get to enjoy many more albums from them.

      I also think Blind Melon were a good band, FEd. I would have liked them to go on playing.

      Here are some more covers to add to my list.

      Neil Young – After The Gold Rush
      Crosby, Stills & Nash
      Massive Attack – 100th Window
      Sting – If On A Winter’s Night

      But my favourite recent cover is, without any doubt, Muse’s “Black Holes & Revelations”, by Storm Thorgerson, of course.

      Unfortunately I don’t like Muse’s music, so I miss the most important reason to buy the CD. :))

    3. Nirvana – Nevermind (a real underwater photograph by Kirk Weddle)

      Another memorable underwater shot is on the cover of Chrome by Catherine Wheel, which can be seen here, along with an interview with Storm.

      I remember that one of their singles, ‘Sparks Are Gonna Fly’, had a jug of milk falling off a table as its cover. I think Storm was behind that one, too.

    4. Thank you for the link, FEd. 🙂

      The cover of “Chrome” is beautiful, but the one with the man on the gigantic tree root is just amazing. The album should be “The Widow”, by The Mars Volta.
      I had never seen that.

      Last Christmas I received as a gift the Storm Thorgerson’s book, “For The Love Of Vinyl”. I enjoyed it so much. I think that man is just a genius.

  8. Have a nice day you all.

    I remember 4 unforgettable portraits:

    About Face – D.Gilmour
    Who’s Next – Who
    In the Court of the Crimson King – King Crimson (this terrible face is used as prog-rock wallpaper) and
    Sgt. Pepper – Beatles (…London, Abbey Road and the magic atmosphere…)

    A hug from Rome

  9. TY Fed for that great info about my fave album of PF, Momentary Lapse of Reason, and TY too for the interesting link about the album covers. However, I didn’t find a search option there, is there one?

    I have another question regarding the right of the name of Pink Floyd. Numerous times I heard that Pink Floyd would be touring now…taking a deeper look, it was only Roger Waters touring. Look at this link.

    Headline: Pink Floyd Sides With Gaza | The FOX Nation

    It is not Pink Floyd, it is only Roger Waters, which I find a little puzzling, if he is owning now the trademark Pink Floyd. Same true for the German SW3 radio channel, they are advertising the tour of Pink Floyd, which is only Roger Waters. Hmm, not right in my mind.

  10. I always remember the Boston albums with the spaceship… and not an album cover but, Pulse, with the flashing LED… was damn funky!

  11. Diana mentioned About Face, love that cover.

    How about Physical Grafitti by Led Zep? A nice house of cards.

    Also Dark Side of The Moon. Posters and all.

  12. – ‘Sticky Fingers’, The Rolling Stones, conceived by Andy Wharol, I think. (Maybe not photography, but I love his banana artwork on ‘The Velvet Underground & Nico’, too – “Peel Slowly and see” – 😉 )
    – ‘Horses’, Patti Smith
    ‘Histoire de Melody Nelson’, Serge Gainsbourg
    – Abbey Road, The Beatles
    – ‘The Division Bell’, ‘High Hopes’ single, ‘Animals’, ‘Ummagumma’… All Pink Floyd covers by Storm Thorgerson, in fact.

    I really enjoyed exploring Storm Thorgerson’s ‘Mind Over Matter: The Images Of Pink Floyd’ in the past and I’m glad you gave me the excuse to do it again.

    It’s a wonderful collection of photos from the album covers of PF, of many rare, unusual pieces, but it also includes a lot of stories of how all that came out. Funny anecdotes. The text is entertaining, witty, Storm must be a bit eccentric. 😉

    I love the foreword by David Gilmour:

    Storm has always had a big mouth. When I first met him he was fifteen and I was in short trousers. I still have a picture in my mind of this schoolboy holding forth to a group of similar-minded teenagers his views on things like Art, Drugs, the Meaning of Life and Immortality. Nothing much has changed (apart from my trousers). I am enormously fond of Storm. He has been my friend, my conscience, my therapist and of course my artistic advisor for over thirty years.

    There was a time – during the making of the Momentary Lapse Of Reason album – that we were persuaded to consider other artists for the cover. The ideas presented by these ‘proper’ designers seemed to be based on purely commercial terms which didn’t fit what we were about. It was with relief that we went back to the devil we knew. Storm’s ideas are not linked to anyone’s ideas of marketing: that they are atmospherically linked to the music is a bonus. I consider what he does to be art.

  13. Buena Vista Social Club ~ Buena Vista Social Club
    Morrison Hotel ~ The Doors
    Live! ~ Bob Marley & The Wailers
    Dr. John’s Gumbo ~ Dr. John
    The Marshall Mathers LP ~ Eminem
    The Gilded Palace of Sin ~ The Flying Burrito Brothers (Joshua Tree and those flamboyant Nudie suits–LOVE IT 😛 )
    All Things Must Pass ~ George Harrison, the garden gnome
    Late For The Sky ~ Jackson Browne
    McLemore Avenue ~ Booker T. & the M.G.s
    Grace ~ Jeff Buckley
    Sketches (For My Sweetheart the Drunk) ~ Jeff Buckley
    Physical Graffiti ~ Led Zeppelin
    Live In Gdansk ~ David Gilmour
    Wish You Were Here ~ Pink Floyd
    The Division Bell ~ Pink Floyd
    The Joshua Tree ~ U2

    One photograph can speak volumes, can’t it?

    A fun site, that album atlas! Lots of trivia to store up in the cobwebs of my mind — loved the Morrison Hotel and Wish You Were Here tidbits.

    Later, y’all. 🙂

  14. Yes “Tormato” with its portrait of the band splattered with a tomato, a riff on the punk movement and being branded “dinosaur rock.” They were poking fun at all of that. I’ve heard that among at least two members of the band, this is their least favorite of their albums.

    For me, the most intriguing photograph ever to grace the cover of a record has got to be the image from WYWH of the men shaking hands where one is on fire. I prefer the photo used on the American sleeve, where the flames are more robust than in the shot that appeared on the British cover. It is a visually striking image, and a brilliant statement on how a warm gesture like a handshake can be as phony as the smile on a politician’s face as he lies about doing great things. One man is getting burned and the other man knows it, yet he smiles through it all.

    1. Someone just told me that the cover of “Tormato” was designed by Storm’s former partner at Hipgnosis, Po Powell. And that the tomato splattered on the cover originated when Rick Wakeman first saw the cover design, thought it was as lame as the music they’d been recording, and threw a tomato at it in sheer frustration.

      Looking again at the group photo on the back cover that I’d referenced above, I am reminded why photos of the band are not on the covers of their more popular albums.

  15. Does what it says on the tin: AC/DC – ‘Let it Rock’

    Best use of an old family photo: Stereophonics – ‘You Gotta Go There To Come Back’

    Best pose: David Bowie – ‘Heroes’

    Best hairy arm-pits: Patti Smith – ‘Easter’ (Does that count as making a statement?)

    Spooky: The Who – ‘Who Are You’

    Brown paper bag: Celine Dion – ‘Unison’ (On the basis that; if you did pluck up the courage to take the bag off, it may well come in very useful).

    1. Haha, Céline Dion and her ‘Taking Chances’… I think the photographer just asked her to pose like Mariah Carey!

      Hideous cover.

      Oh she needs to make more efforts to copy Mariah Carey

      Who really needs three Mariah Careys? 😉

      Am I the only one to find all these Divas totally ridiculous?

  16. Love Storm Thorgerson and his team, from Syd Barrett (The Madcap Laughs) till Quatermess (-68), till Alan Parsons (Eve – try anything once) till one of his latest creations – Pineapple Thief (something here is missing).

    Roger Dean (Yes; Tales & Drama).

    A new guy in this business is Ed Unitsky, please check his website (from the Tangent, Flower Kings, Guy Manning and one of his latest; Unitopia – album Artificial). Stunning.

    But maybe this album is my fav;

    Troy Donockley – The Madness of Crowds (the cover is a kind of jig saw and besides that… the music is something smashing… classical, dark, roaring, creepy… madness).

  17. For some 20 years now, I’m haunted by that image of wildhaired madcap Syd Barrett crouching, almost levitating in that perfect composition by Storm. It brings tears to my eyes. I can’t think of any better… except for Ummagumma, I can stare at that cover for hours!

    1. For some 20 years now, I’m haunted by that image of wildhaired madcap Syd Barrett crouching, almost levitating in that perfect composition by Storm.

      You and me both, Sharon. What a haunting image it is.

    2. In my training as a teacher, I studied mental health and psychological disorders. I have seen self-portraits of seriously mentally-ill people, those with severe schizophrenia and extreme depression. They often depict themselves crouching, often in the corner of a room or in a room with a lot of open space, and quite often covering their faces. And Syd’s pictures from “Madcap Laughs” fit right in with those self-portraits.

      This is a strong indication of Syd’s mental state during this time. Two years after leaving Floyd, Syd was not a healthy man.

  18. We have been lucky over the last few years to get to Storm’s displays in London, the last one being in April, and it was great to see all the album covers large poster size instead of crammed onto a CD. Wish You Were Here and The Division Bell are the two that stand out and we finally were able to see the face within the faces!

    It’s not just the content and originality, it’s the colours that make Storm’s work so distinctive.

    Best Wishes to all
    Heather

  19. My all time favourite album cover is ‘A Nice Pair’. I love all those talking pictures like ‘A Fork in the Road’, ‘A Bird in the Hand is Worth Two in the Bush’, ‘Flashback’ etc etc.

    In my opinion I think Storm’s fantastic photography in The Division Bell is also in the same style. For example the last photo in the booklet has always said to me: ‘Pass With Flying Colours’ simply because there are two men in the photo but 3 banners of flying colours. One man has already passed the camera lens. Then there is the ‘Elysian Fields’ on the front cover, ‘Box Clever’ on ‘Lost For Words’ etc etc.

  20. Love the elegance of ‘Tree Of Half Life’ by Storm Thorgerson.

    “It’s a cover of an album never made”. What a pity!

    I see the spirit/intelligence of the forest/nature, taking the shape of a profile head in order to (try to) communicate with us. A perfect cover for ‘Take It Back’ (single), no?

    1. WOW, what an image!!!

      It certainly gives new meaning to the word Dendrites! :))

      Did I do a subliminal, or did Nick and I really post within 20 minutes of each other on Syd? 8|

    2. I own one of the first prints off the press of this image. It was a very special gift from Storm that I will cherish forever.

      I highly suggest every Pink Floyd fan makes a point to visit Storm’s art events and a piece of his luminosity. 8)

  21. Just in case you follow the latest comments, but not the tweets…

    David Gilmour will be on Jonathan Ross’ show tonight, backing Al Green: Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, BBC One, 10:35pm.

    The Scissor Sisters are on, too (they of the disco ‘Comfortably Numb’).

    This programme will, of course, be available on BBC iPlayer.

    Please note that David engages in no chat and will not be joining Al Green on tour.

    1. Please note that David engages in no chat and will not be joining Al Green on tour.

      I’ll be happy enough if I can see/hear him play, even if only briefly! 🙂

  22. One of my favorite Hipgnosis covers (as if I could pick a favorite) is “Deadlines” by The Strawbs. Man upside down in a phone booth full of water at dusk. Oddly, the scariest part of the image is the car approaching in the distance.

    1. You have no idea how long I’ve waited to figure out who made that album. I remember seeing it in 1978 or so when I was in 8th or 9th grade and it just stuck with me. Now I know.

      Thanks Craig!

      P.S. — I agree about the car. That’s what gave it a creepy feel.

  23. Hi FEd,

    I’m very happy to have heard yesterday David played at Jonathan Ross’ Show.

    Unfortunately, video on BBC iPlayer was available for UK only. 😕

    Could be interesting watch it on Blog. Is it possible? 🙂

    Bye, Hydrea

    1. Could be interesting to watch it on Blog. Is it possible? 🙂

      Unfortunately, out of ‘respect’ for the BBC, it’s not possible to embed the video, but I hope the YouTube link included in the following post allows you to enjoy the performance.

  24. **Off topic**

    Thanks for letting us know about David playing with Al Green the other night, FEd. Nothing fancy from David, but a great performance nonetheless. That man can still blow! If you haven’t seen it yet, try and check it out.

    Been busy with the baby James, but I’m still lurking about.

    Peace and Love to you all!

    ~Erin

  25. Dear F.Ed.,

    It’s been a long time since I last posted there, sorry. I hope everyone is well and enjoying this summer (can we really call it so?) and the 2010 FIFA cup too… (no comment).

    I’m so happy to read about the last apparition of David with Al Green: I enjoyed your link on YouTube : great are his versatility and his skills also as “session man”, performing in different settings together with other musicians.

    I was ready to tell you my album sleeves, I found out some symbolic images of some albums, as:

    Selma Songs by Bjork (the guy)
    Nevermind by Nirvana (the baby swimming)
    Early days/latter days Led Zeppelin

    I like also the quite colourful imaginative drawings as

    Innuendo by Queen
    Korn – Follow the leader
    Joy Division – Unknown pleasures

    And, of course: may the best team win (wearing earplugs)!

    Have a nice day you all.

    Thank you,
    Ciao Elisabetta
