Even the design credits (“Amos and Andy”) appear be a case of parody: Amos ’n Andy was a popular US radio show (1928–1960) and TV show (1951–1953). From Wikipedia:
Amos 'n’ Andy is an American radio sitcom about black characters, initially set in Chicago and later in the Harlem section of New York City. While the show had a brief life on 1950s television with black actors, the 1928 to 1960 radio show was created, written and voiced by two white actors, Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll, who played Amos Jones (Gosden) and Andrew Hogg Brown (Correll), as well as incidental characters.
As a sarcastic statement, Amos and Andy are credited for the design & photography on the album due to the history of the characters being portrayed by white actors wearing blackface in the film Check and Double Check
