You Devil You is an album by comedian Clerow “Flip” Wilson Jr. (1933–1998), “TV’s first black superstar” (Time magazine), released in 1968. From Wikipedia:

Wilson popularized the phrase “The devil made me do it.” The catchphrase “What you see is what you get,” often used by Wilson’s Geraldine character, inspired researchers at PARC (and elsewhere) to create the acronym WYSIWYG for computer software

The cover design is by Haig Adishian, with photography by Mark Roth. Adishian previously used Dave West’s Bubble Gum for the debut album by Vanilla Fudge.
