    All-caps Orbit and all-lowercase Eightball on the cover of a Little Richard album. From Wikipedia:

    Right Now! was recorded in January 1973, possibly in Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, Alabama, and issued with no publicity as a low-budget LP. Richard himself recalled that: “We were about to start a tour and we needed some money. So Robert ‘Bumps’ Blackwell and me got a deal for one album with an advance of ten thousand dollars from Kent Modern. We went into the studio and did it in one night. I did material we had worked out together. I prefer recording at night, my voice is in better shape then.”
