Does anyone know if Steve Howe himself ever commented on appearing on the cover of 'Time and a Word'?

The original sleeve is a line drawing of a female nude on a checker board?? The back cover photograph includes Pete Banks the guitarist of Yes at the time. So I doubt that Steve Howe would have made any comment (any more than Rick Wakeman or Alan White), him  being with Bodast around that time......

The nude female was a little too delicate for our Puritan sensibilities across the pond...here is the U.S. cover, which inexplicably did have Steve Howe on it.

Oh dear, a f***-up on the part of Atlantic Records USA (and the country that allowed that Blind Faith cover) - Even my expanded /remastered Yes's Time & A Word CD of 2003 uses the original artwork. BTW why is the lettering on my copy of eponymous Led Zeppelin LP in turquoise, when every other copy I've seen (vinyl, cassette, CD) is in orange: another Atlantic change of mind?

a f**k up.. or just a reflection of when the album was released in the states...  Banks wasn't in the group anymore and would have been naff to have him on the cover hahah.
