Aphrodite's Child "666"
Jerry Ewing: "The simplistic design, the 666 was created using plastic car number plate numerals, belies the intensity and oddity of the music within. That however, was totally captured by the bizarre Dali-esque painting of a motor car inside the original gatefold, which conveyed the "stupidity of man", according to keyboard player Vangelis."
