Which 1960s Album Cover featured the Coit Tower in San Francisco?

So far as I recall, the Coit Tower features on the cover - maybe an inside cover or a back cover - as a psychedelic view of the slope of San Francisco down to the sea.

I thought I recalled that it was on a Jefferson Airplane album - but I have looked via Google images - and drawn a blank.

A black-and-white sketch of Coit Tower is on the back of the 1969 psychedelic-colored album Happy Trails by Quicksilver Messenger Service.

"The Kingston Trio...From the "Hungry i" has a b&w sketch of the city, and Coit Tower is pictured.

Hmm, I seem to remember that the tower was in colour along with the view of that part of San Francisco.

@MonkeyToes - thank you for the link, it made me smile because it was definitely not that band :-) but I found them on Spotify and am just about to listen to them.

I see the comment below the Flickr photo is 'Some of the funniest lines I have ever heard are on this record' so I am gearing up to listen attentively.
