Music has long had an association with bodily function and odour. This in some ways reflects the rawness or the 'realness' of the music in question. From funk's association with the smell of sex to Dizzee Rascal's Dirty Stank record label, this has long been the case. Millie Jackson, however was never one to leave anything up to the imagination and decided that nothing would suit the sleeve of her come back album than a photograph of her on the throne crimping out a particularly robust turd. The shit or just shit - the choice is yours.
