This is the much more rare version, without the tape covering Kate Moss on the front or back.
This is the “more common” of the two versions of this record. Released in February of 2006, this is Spirit Recordings – DF 006. This version has the tape over Kate Moss’s eyes on the front cover, and her mouth on the reverse.
Depending on your opinion about the hand stenciled “Pokemon” covers from Junichi Masuda on the Mooshake label, this can be considered the most recent “Banksy” cover. Released in 2015 and rumored to be in an edition of 100, this cover features the image from Banksy’s “Rude Copper” print from 2002.

For anyone noticing that the artist named on the title is often not featured on the track listing, they are always appear on the “Intro” track, if not on the records themselves.
This 2003 Wall of Sound Compilation 3xLP features some familiar artists from other Banksy covers (Blak Twang, Röyksopp) , but this record cover is unique of one special reason. The perpetually reclusive artist known as Banksy is actually pictured. He is credited as the man on the far right side of the front cover.
Released in October 2003, Good Song was the third and final single released from the LP Think Tank. One thing I should note is that if you look carefully at the upper left corner of the front cover, you will see a tiny notch. This appears in all three 7″ vinyl singles, and is not an indication of damage.
The second single released from the Think Tank LP, the Crazy Beat vinyl single offered a different cover from its CD single version. The CD image was actually tagged to a building before being notable painted over against the building owner’s wishes.
Here are the front and back of the CD version:
Out of Time was one of three 7″ singles to come from the Think Tank LP, along with Crazy Beat, and Good Song. The degree of collaboration, having Banksy do all the LP cover imagery, as well as the promo CD and all three 7″ picture sleeves was unprecedented, and never repeated.
