Cockpit Good—Crash Bad

The band secured permission from Pan Am to take a photo in the cockpit. So far so good.
For the back, they chose an image of a European plane crash, with Simon playing a banjo amidst the wreckage. Not good.
Pan Am was pissed and sued everybody from the band to rack jobbers. Caused Kapp to fold, along with the band. A third album, The Garden, was recorded and shelved, finally issued in 1998
