Lou Reed - Transformer (back cover)

Lou Reed - Transformer (back cover)
Back cover of the album 'Transformer' by Lou Reed. Scanned from a CD booklet. The front cover is here.

This is the then scandalous cover showing a transvestite and a man with a banana in his pants, made to look like a giant erection. I didn't notice any potential for scandals, until I read about it on the Internet.

I put it here to illustrate a comment of mine in a discussion; and because this image seems to be available nowhere else on the Internet. I think this counts as 'fair use'.
