I think this is incredible:

Any ideas?

ITC Kabel Ultra methinks.

If they used ITC Kabel, the digital version is slightly different from what is on the album cover (which is probably phototype... this album is from the 1970s)... Aside from the fact that they took the dots off the letter i, the g is slightly different, for example.

[EDIT] Actually it looks more like Kabel, rather than ITC Kabel (there is a difference!)

It's the pre-ITC version--Kabel Heavy. Bitstream has (had?) a version called Geometric 231 Heavy, but for some reason you can't get it at MyFonts anymore.

Sorry, I always get confused about which Kabel has the non-rotated dots and squarish 'a'.

It’s still there:
Geometric 231 Heavy.

That's weird. When I visited the site on the 20th, the "Tilde" version was the only one there, and there were no purchase options. The Bitstream one was missing. Maybe some kind of site maintenance glitch.

Thanks Everyone! That rules!
