This album cover recreation was the fourteenth photo in the Care Home Album Covers series and was a result of Robert being contacted by musician, singer-songwriter and producer Midge Ure. The lead singer of Ultravox requested via Twitter that Robert cover the album which was celebrating its 40th anniversary. Robert duly obliged with a complex set-up using four residents in varying positions, all in one photoshoot. As Midge commented on seeing the finished album cover recreation "Utterly, utterly brilliant Robert".
