Spookily, a related item on Steve Martin's The Avenue Online web-site talks of album covers that also never saw the light of day. Steve collaborated with Pauline Mead, the graphics artist, on a series of 'mock-up' Album covers - 15 in all. They're very thought provoking on a number of levels, whether or not you know the music of Alan Parsons or Eric Woolfson.

As Steve reports, sadly Pauline died at a early age and the designs were never progressed - a real shame!
