That Afrodesia cover is really a knock out! Does that Fernand Lapierre back cover have a location credit? That wall looks like a Kon Tiki/Luau -type entrance hut, could be the Montreal Kon Tiki.

That Tiki is hard to see, and such a generic Ku...it could have been one of the Tikis at the Kon Tiki, but that is not conclusive evidence. However, here is a photo of the Luau entrance hut that was put into the Hanalei courtyard in 1980. I believe that some of Steve Crane's Kon Tikis duplicated this concept from their flagship restaurant:



Compare the material (even if the bamboo is darker) and the construction. The wall that the peacock chair on the LP cover is set against is curved in the same manner. And then that cocktail he is holding sure looks like that green bomb in this Steve Crane Kon Tiki menu:

I would say that's the same green cocktail in his hand and in the menu... So, I wonder what's the story behind that picture and visit. We need some Canadians here.

it's the same story than with other mainland performers that felt the need to ad their own to the endless list of "Hawaiian" albums:
For the cover, they were placed into the closest approximation of Hawaii on the mainland: The American Tiki Temple.
