Moby - Voodoo Child

While his single "Go" was still resonating all across Europe, Richard M. Hall dropped another hit single on his US label, Instinct Records, immediately licenced in Europe by Belgian label R&S : Voodoo Child. (Most tracks are available on the Moby compilation "Early Underground").

While crossing the atlantic, the record gained a great piece of design for its artwork : instead of using a straightforward illustration of the title (which relates to the Jimmy Hendrix sample used in the track), and show a voodoo puppet for example, the designer prefered to use a related object (nails) and create this "typographic" cover. The backcover was going further, still with the nails. Maybe this also illustrated the fact that these anthemic tracks where hitting hard as nail ;-)
