Description Front cover; image and text. The imagery used is black and white photography of Toni Williams and the Tremellos. In the top right corner of the cover is the record company logo. Beneath this is the record company label number. A photograph of Toni Williams runs two thirds of the way across the cover from the right. He is 'lying' on top of the text below him. He is wearing dark trousers and a sweater with the letter 'T' on it. His feet aren't visible. He is smiling with his head leaning on his right hand. The text below him reads; 'Swingin' with Toni' The word 'Swingin'' is twice the size of the words 'with Toni'. The letters 'Swi' are in blue, the letters 'ngin' and the apostophe are in black. To the right of this are the words 'with Toni'. 'With' is grey and sits above the word 'Toni' which is white with a blue outline. All of this text forms a block that runs horizontally across the cover. Running across the bottom of the page is a thick blue rectangle. In it, at the right side, are small potrait photographs of The Tremellos, all wearing the same style of sweater as Toni Williams. In the top left corner of the blue rectangle is the word 'Tremellos' in white. Above this word are the words 'Toni Williams' in black and 'with the' in blue. The text is in a hand generated style, and is very irregular as if to suggest trembling. [AAF]
There are some brown watermarks on the cover. [AAF]
Description Back cover; image and text. All text is black on a white background. The only image on the back cover is a black and white portrait shot of Toni Williams. It is on the middle right side of the cover. In the top right of the cover is the record company label number. It has been placed in a small box. To its left is the EP title; 'Swingin with Toni'. Underneath 'Swingin'' is the record company logo and the right of this are the song titles for the whole EP. Below this is body text, which gives information about Toni Williams and the Tremellos. The body text is wrapped around the the photograph of Toni Williams. Centered at the very bottom of the cover is the address of the company and copyright information. [AAF]
