Item specifics Condition: Like new: An item that looks as if it was just taken out of shrink wrap. The album was recorded at Atlantic Studios in New York between 11 and 15 May ,  following the band's nine shows as part of Murray the K 's "Music in the 5th Dimension" concert series.
Atlantic Records owner Ahmet Ertegun was also present during the sessions. According to Dowd the recording sessions took only three-and-a-half days. The band's visas expired on the very last day of recording. Drummer Ginger Baker recalled how the album's title was based on a malapropism which alluded to 19th-century British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli :. You know how the title came about — Disraeli Gears — yeah? We had this Austin Westminster , and Mick Turner was one of the roadies who'd been with me a long time, and he was driving along and Eric [Clapton] was talking about getting a racing bicycle.
Mick, driving, went 'Oh yeah — Disraeli gears! We all just fell over We said that's got to be the album title. The photography was by Bob Whitaker , known for works by the Beatles , including the controversial Yesterday and Today "butcher" cover.
Most of the photographs were taken in July , with shoots in London's Hyde Park as well as in the Scottish Highlands. Some of the images were shot on Ben Nevis , the tallest mountain in the British isles.
The photos show a clean-shaven Clapton with a bouffant, permed hairstyle. By the time of the album's release in November, however, he was letting his hair grow out straight and had grown a moustache. The front cover consists of a psychedelic collage with the title centred and band name below, surrounded by a floral arrangement.
Martin Sharp was attempting to capture the sound of the music in the cover, which he describes as a "warm fluorescent sound": . I got hold of a publicity shot and cut it up, along with cutouts from various books, laid the pieces out and stuck them together as a collage on a inch square.
I did some drawing outlines, and then painted all over it with fluorescent inks and paints of the time. I really wanted to capture that warm, electric sound of their music in the colours and expression of the cover. On my way to England, I'd gone to Cambodia. And in one of the towns I visited, there were these amazing sculptures with faces on each side, and huge trees growing out on top… Over the years, these great trees had taken root and grown.
I suppose I thought that was a bit like the band: where you could see three faces, and the music coming out of their heads. The cover art was later used for the compilation Those Were the Days.
