A twelve-inch 33 1/3 rpm LP recording of the album "The Youngest Teenager" by Moms Mabley. Mabley is wearing a blue and white floral dress with blue plaid stockings, a blue cardigan and a blue hat. Her hands are on her hips and a speech bubble says [what / generation / gap?]. Her reflection in the mirror also has her hands on her hips but the blue floral dress has changed into a skirt and crop top. The crop top is exposing her chest. Her reflection is wearing tall white boots and the same blue hat. The title [moms mabley / the youngest teenager] is printed in yellow and blue letters at the top right corner of the album cover.
