Well Mr Carthy's got the funk in my book. Nobody is George Clinton, except George himself, and some of the time even he isn't

I suppose I'm mainly thinking of that jacket with the detailing that Martin C is sporting on the cover of Sweet Wivelsfield. I would post an image, but it wouldn't be good enough to show the cut and detailing, so only those of you who have the album or access to it, will appreciate what I mean.
Same jacket is pictured in black and white on the covers of the Prince Heathen album

from AllMusic guide:
"The younger brother of singer/songwriter Paul Simon, Eddie Simon chose a somewhat different route to musical expression, more or less dictated by his musical abilities, which manifested themselves very early in life. By all accounts a much more natural musician than his more famous sibling, the younger Simon was proficient on guitar -- and was learning classical technique -- while Paul Simon was still trying to find an instrument to adopt as his own and settled on the guitar. A near dead-ringer for his brother both physically (he was reportedly mobbed for photos on several occasions by people mistaking him for Paul) and as a singer and musician, Eddie Simon emerged quietly before the public in a background capacity, working behind the scenes for Simon & Garfunkel on their later tours. In 1967, he was also apparently involved in the initial formation of the folk-rock group Wings, which was comprised of ex-Spanky & Our Gang member Oz Bach and latter-day Serendipity Singers alumna Pam Robins -- Simon had been replaced by Jim Mason by the time the group became fully organized and began recording, however. During 1968, he was involved with a group called the Guild Light Cage, who recorded a single of "The 14th Annual Fun And Pleasure Fair" b/w "Cloudy" -- the latter a Paul Simon song -- during their history together. In the 1970's, Simon established himself as a successful guitar teacher in New York through the Guitar Study Center, and was reportedly involved in the radio business as well; he has also turned up in various documentaries by and about Simon & Garfunkel and Paul Simon, as well as in various feature articles about his brother's career."
