does anyone know whot the green mind girl is? ive always wondered that .. i wonder what she looks like now and if she has since quit smoking… it remains one of the coolest album covers of all time..June 26, 2004 at 4:16 pm #103334
here you can read the full story about the Green Mind Cover
I have no idea at all, though, what she’s about after the pic has been takenQuote:The girl in the photo is a mystery and will ever remain soJune 27, 2004 at 10:55 am #103335
it’s a good story, but i don’t really believe it … i think the photographer’s having us on … :aliensmile:June 27, 2004 at 8:12 pm #103336
Hard to believe she has never been identified. Especially since the book is so rare ($300.00 used) and her photo now sells for $1200.00!! Wonder how much or even if J had to pay to use it for the cover?
When I first read that she was unidentified, Sonic Youth "Sister" and TAD "8-Way Santa" come to mind.
Wouldn’t it be cool if we could find her? I guess she’d be around 40 now?
Maybe Rambleon is right and it is just a good story!June 28, 2004 at 5:56 am #103337
i know the story behind "8 way santa", but what’s the deal w/"sister" ?June 28, 2004 at 11:14 am #103338
Took this from the Sonic Youth site:
"Its original cover was immediately controversial — a bright, almost out of place photograph of a girl by Richard Avedon in the upper left corner was removed after Avedon threatened to sue. Initially they just placed black stickers over the jacket art, and blacked it out completely on subsequent pressings."
There was also an issue with the Disney picture. Check it all out here:

I know the 8 Way Santa story too,I once saw it on cd with the original cover in a used storeJune 28, 2004 at 1:07 pm #103340
oh right … i wonder how much the originals are worth …June 28, 2004 at 1:54 pm #103341
An original Sister CD just sold on ebay for $3.50!! Of course I paid 10 times that.
It depends on if the seller knows it’s rare.June 30, 2004 at 12:21 pm #103342
holy crap the next time someone takes my picture without asking i am going to punch them in the face… 1200 bucks?!? the c.d. is only 12 dollars.. the girl in the picture never sees a cent neemer… that poetic justice or whatNovember 21, 2006 at 7:38 pm #103343
