Now they’re planning the crime of the century
Well what will it be?
Read all about their schemes and adventuring.
It’s well worth a fee.
So roll up and see
How they rape the universe
How they’ve gone from bad to worse.
Who are these men of lust, greed and glory?
Rip off the masks and let’s see.
But that’s not right – oh no, what’s the story?
Look, there’s you and there’s me.

The sleeve for a popular record album from 1979 contains graphics elements that suggest foreknowledge of the tragic September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York City.

The number one pop album during the summer of 1979, Supertramp’s Breakfast in America, the band’s sixth album, was released on March 29, 1979 (the Georgia Guidestones monument was completed 360 days later on March 22, 1980).

Breakfast in America was recorded inside a Masonic temple in 1978.

Next stop was Studio B at the Village Recorder in West LA, housed within a Masonic temple and featuring a 48-channel Harrison console, as well as two Ampex 1200 24-track machines. The band members all gathered there on the first day, yet Peter Henderson didn’t show — while driving to the studio from Topanga Canyon, he and his new wife were involved in a head-on collision with a drunk driver. Fortunately, nobody was too badly injured, and Peter eventually turned up at the Village Recorder with two enormous black eyes. “I looked like I’d been in the ring with Muhammad Ali,” he says. “It wasn’t the best of starts, but we were very lucky to get off so lightly.”

The album’s cover received the 1980 Grammy Award for Best Recording Packaging. The front cover bears an aerial view of the New York City skyline as seen from an airliner passenger window above the Statue of Liberty; however, the buildings are recreated using kitchen items and Lady Liberty is a diner waitress named “Libby” holding a glass of orange juice on a platter in place of a torch. The cover can be seen below (image courtesy Wikipedia).

Reflecting the image yield’s the following:

Not only does “Libby” appear to be drawing attention to the Twin Towers, but hovering over the Towers is the number “911.” This bizarre and apparently intentional aspect of the Supertramp record sleeve was first reported on QFF.

If everyone was listening you know
There’d be a chance that we could save the show.
Who’ll be the last clown
To bring the house down?
Oh no, please no, don’t let the curtain fall.

  1. I hate that record! I wouldn’t be surprised if it was satanic.

    Anyway, Van, something you seem to have missed in your observations of the Georgia Guidestones (forgive me if you’ve actually noticed this).

    Look at the location! 34.231984°N 82.894506°W

    82.8°W !

    • Thanks. That is interesting. I did not notice that. 828 m = 2,717 feet which is the height of the Burj Khalifa and the height I derived from the Guidestones. Also 8+2+8 = 18 = 6+6+6. The Guidestones are designed to be exactly 18 feet tall.

  2. Good timing :)

  3. I can accept you mirror the album, but please don’t mirror the name of the composers. The correct is “Richard Davies and Roger Hodgson”.

  4. And orange juice, as when someone is going to die in “The Godfather”

  5. And they used plastic knives to subdue the airplane´s crew

  6. a bit late here,

    album release date 3-29-1979.

    3+2+9+1+9+7+9=40 the biblical number of judgement.

  7. Also, the “SU” looks like S11 since the bottom of the “U” is cut off.

    Also the expression on Libby’s face is very odd. She looks more fearful than happy.

  8. she looks overjoyed to me. like a conjuring witch or even a demon.

  9. She looks like she is serving up the Twin Towers also (the glass of orange juice is the torch)

  10. On the link provided one of the members wears a… plane in flames in his t-shirt.
