This is the first album to feature Matthias Jabs on lead guitar, and thus the first record to feature the band's "classic" lineup. However, in April while the band was touring in France , Michael quit, which led to Jabs' immediate return after intense negotiations. The original album cover depicted a well dressed man and woman seated in the back of a car, with the woman's right breast exposed and connected to the man's hand by stretched bubblegum. The back cover featured the same man and woman, but holding a photograph of the band, and with the woman's left breast completely exposed without any gum.
It was created by Storm Thorgerson of the design firm Hipgnosis. It caused some controversy in the US upon the album's release,  with later pressings of the album bearing a simple design of a blue scorpion on a black background. Recalling the cover photo with the woman and the car, Thorgerson remarked: "Not exactly the most politically correct scene you've ever seen.
I thought it was funny, but women read a different inflection into it now. In a interview, singer Klaus Meine commented on the album cover, stating: "We just did not know it would be a problem in America, it was just sex and rock 'n' roll. It is odd that in America some of these covers were a problem, because in the '80s when we would tour here, we always had boobs flashed to us at the front of the stage.
Nowhere else in the world, just here. We just did not think it would be a problem to put out a record like Lovedrive in America. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
