Contact is the second album by Silver Apples. The cover and inner artwork generated a lawsuit from Pan Am Airlines. The cover features the Silver Apples in a plane cockpit with drug paraphernalia and the inner artwork showed the band amongst plane wreckage playing banjos. The resulting lawsuit by Pan Am against Silver Apples and Kapp Records led to the breakup of the band.[2][3]

The album was re-released in 1997 by MCA Records compiled with the band's first album Silver Apples. It was also re-released illegally on compact disc and vinyl in 2003 by Radioactive Records in the UK.
