    Pre-internet the Euroa comp was sort of sought after for a while... Europa must have had huge pressings though it was a label that sold more in supermarkets than in record stores. The Tribe cover I always associated with a brief fad of body paint/blacklight live shows by some bands in the late 80s. I forgot who, maybe the chili peppers or some crap like I can't remember, they had dancers too who wore similar stripes, was a big thing in europe. The pose is a variation of the 12" crouch to fold the female anatomy in record format. There has to be an exploito/exotica wall worth of examples of crouching girls with body paint.

    not a crouch but great paint



    But yes, the Europa record could have had a rep among US diggers at that time... but the good tracks are all from US releases no?

    This trend coincided with Goldie Hawn painting her body on "Laugh-In" and the movie "The Illustrated Man". 

    I don't see many Europa records in the dollar bins here in the States, although there are plenty of MFP / Top Of The Pops LPs with women in miniskirts and boots. Those have been used many times for flyers and mix CDs.

    in b/w and some photoshopping I could see her on a Scandinavian Death metal cover. There are a few sickly junkie faces I vaguely remember from some of those exploitos going through the racks as a kid while the parents cruised the frozen food section. I always thought no wonder, this isn't even real music.
