I was just listening to Jehtro Tull's Thick as a Brick on Spotify and I noticed that the album cover had a red square in the upper red corner in which you can see the band name. See the image for a more visual approach to what I mean:

Thick as a Brick

Now I'm quite sure that my LP version is exactly the same but with a black corner instead of a red one. I'm not at home right now so I can't take a picture, but I can't seem to find any evidence that this edition exists.

Now the question is: is this an official release?

    google.com/… shows a dozen variants, some with & without the red corner.

  • @Tetsujin I'm talking about the LP version. A CD & DVD version is the one without a corner

Yes, I think it can be an official relase. On Discogs, I found some releases with a black corner:

Jethro Tull

Even black corner with red letters in Italy.

You can check your record number once you find it, and see it on the list.
