There have been a few different album covers for "Relics." The original featured a somewhat Rube Goldberg-esque line drawing from drummer Nick Mason. When the LP was released in the United States, it sported strange masks — actually bottle openers with someone sticking his or her tongue through the mouth opening. The Australian version displayed old coins on the cover.
"Relics" reached number 152 on the United States Billboard album chart.
Oddly, a CD version of the album was not available — except for a limited New Zealand pressing! — until 1995.
The version we play on "Floydian Slip" is the 1995 Capitol remaster. The artwork is a 3D model based on the Mason line drawing.
