Ohio Players are overdoing it here on this cover. Their Taste of Honey is a much better (provocatively) album cover - artistically speaking. This one - Fire is the second record they had on the Mercury imprint. It was recorded right here at Chicago's Paragon Studios - which I think is still a fully functioning recording studio in operation. This is the overall 3rd of 5 OP albums available in quadraphonic (4-channel stereo). You can hear the the single "Fire" on the TV show called Hell's Kitchen. Fire also was on the pop album charts for a few weeks back in late 1974/early 1975.
