"Of the many brilliant LP covers from Fania records, ""The Big Break"" may be the most notorious one. The idea was a cover that replicated a Wanted by the FBI poster. Only that the FBI in question was the Freaks of Bureau Investigation, Colón was armed with a trombone and was wanted for killing people... with his exciting rhythm. Using the project's limited budget to his advantage, the designer included a cheap photo of Colón and random fingerprints to create a realistic looking poster. After its release, the company was contacted by the real FBI, which requested that the 'Wanted by FBI' text be removed from the cover."
