Chic - Chic 

Original Cover Artwork of Chic Chic The cover for Chic's imaginatively titled 1977 debut album 'Chic' has on its cover two sultry looking ladies blowing referee's whistles. The ladies concerned are typical of the disco divas of the time being in their twenties and having long hair. What they are wearing is unknown as there is nothing in the picture to indicate that they are wearing anything at all. The inclusion of the referee's whistles is believed to represent a juxtaposition between the distunality of the sound they produce with the tonality of the groovy disco music that is contained inside the sleeve of the record. Either that, or people just liked to blow whistles at discos in the 1970s (much more likely).

Cover Artwork Remix of Chic Chic Things have moved on since the 1970s and ladies who attend discos are now much younger than they used to be. In fact the term 'ladies' no longer really applies and 'girls' is a more common and arguably more accurate description. Of course there are far more derogatory terms in use but there is no need to repeat these. In the revised album cover the question of what is being worn has been answered and it is clear to see that the girl (whose age now more accurately reflects those of modern disco-goers) is, in fact, wearing next to nothing. The air of mystery has been retained by cutting the picture of at the waist so that it is not clear whether she is just topless, or whether she is, in fact, completely naked.

Power - Ice-T 

Original Cover Artwork of Ice T Power The cover for Ice-T's album 'Power' is already one of the sexier covers around and caused a stir at the time. According to WikiPedia:
The album cover, photographed by Glen E. Friedman, was the subject of controversy upon its original release, due to the provocative pose of Darlene Ortiz, Ice-T's girlfriend at the time.

Ms Ortiz was obviously the one with the 'Power' given that she is stood holding a whip and although she hasn't gone for the full dominatrix outfit (the white slingshot bikini not being normal mistress clothing), you get the impression that she has the upper hand over the two hapless rappers.

Cover Artwork Remix of Ice T Power Time has moved on and Ms Ortiz is no longer Ice-T's girlfriend so the time is surely right for Ice to take back the power. Ms Ortiz has therefore been replaced by two similarly attired black beauties whose poses suggest that it is Ice-T that has the power now. With one flick of his wrists he would be nicely positioned between two topless busty babes.

Mind you, surrounded by those two, even Ice-T might find their powers of persuasion difficult to turn down!
