An excerpt From Wiki, ".......The cover consists of a wet black garbage bag with the words "Slippery When Wet" traced in the water. "So simple, and not very impressive", said Ritchie Sambora.

The album originally was to feature a busty woman in a wet yellow T-shirt with the album name on the front of the shirt. This was swapped for the plastic bag cover just prior to release. The reasons given for the switch were record executives' fears that dominant record store chains at the time would have refused to carry the album with a sexist cover, and Jon Bon Jovi's dislike of the bright pink border around the photograph the band submitted. Sambora said, "Our label freaked out a bit when they saw what we'd done. They thought it would be banned by American stores, so we had to come up with something else – fast........"

The executives also decided that this controversial cover would be just the right one to use in Japan.  The rest is history.

Highly limited in such great condition.  Comes with OBI and original inners. Record looks perfect.  The Jacket is more like NM--
