Look Inside is the first of two LPs released by the Asylum Choir, a studio group consisting of session musicians Leon Russell and Marc Benno. It was issued by Smash Records in 1968 with catalogue number SRS 67107[3] (stereo edition).

Cover design[edit]

The original gatefold cover featured an image of a roll of toilet paper. The image created sufficient controversy that Smash records reissued the album with a cover featuring a portrait of Russell and Benno.[4] Designer: Lou Kimzey Photography: Ralph Poole
