Ok, so It's a solo album, by the lead singer of a long standing band that is now depleted to just two members.

It shows the artist looking into a mirror, but you don't see his face! Just the back of his head and his shoulder length, fair curly hair.
He is wearing a yellow jacket and holding a microphone behind his back!

The image is a homage to a 1937 oil painting by Rene Magritte.

The artist and album title are printed across the top of the cover, it was released in 1977.

Describing his hairstyle and the clues about his band gave it away I'm afraid.

OK. Here's another. The album cover is white with the name of the band in black along the top. It has a very stylised picture of a face, with just a few lines or brush strokes in primary colours, red, yellow, blue and green. The name of the album is in black below and the subtitle below that. The order of the tracks is printed wrongly on the back of the cover, so there's a sticker over them with the correct order.

Doesn't ring any bells WB...perhaps a little clue or two, such as year, nationality etc?

The album title's one word that has some relevance to the picture on it. The subtitle refers to the fact that the album features some parts of Holst's Planets Suite.

And funnily enough the name of the band has a planet in it too.

It's a British Band formed in 1971. The album wasn't released until 1987, although it's the culmination of a project conceived in 1973, when the band released a single which set lyrics to themes from Jupiter from Holst's Planet Suite.

The name of the band has four words. The first two words are the alliterative name of the keyboard player, in the possessive ie. it is his band. The third word is the name of a planet. One of his previous bands had just two words in the name: his name and surname. I know it's complicated.

Do you give in? Or do you want a really easy clue? Or a slightly less easy clue?
