Today’s Elkie is older and wiser – not the 30-year-old who appeared practically naked on the cover of her debut solo album, Rich Man’s Woman, in 1975. I was persuaded to do that photo and I regretted it,’ she says. I remember doing an interview with a lady who was a very strong feminist and she said, What are you thinking of, doing an album sleeve like that? You’re a serious singer and you look like a showgirl! I hadn’t really thought of it like that.
