Various Artists – Underground Gold album art

I wonder if the cover design was intended as a nod to Milton Glaser’s famous Simon & Garfunkel poster from 1966. The illustration of the musicians on stage looks a bit like a more dynamic version, seen from a worm’s-eye view, with the (almost) faceless guitar player and their instrument also shown in outline. Furthermore, Buxom is a copy of Glaser’s Baby Fat typeface which was put to early use on the concert poster.
Perhaps Filmotype Quick might be based on Ginger, eh?
Definitely related in style. It’s not a direct relationship, though, i.e. Quick is not just Ginger with an added inline. The designers made a number of decisions that work to the advantage of an inline style, see the J or the S, but also the weight and width e.g. in N.
