COVER UP: Glenn Danzig had the best of intentions in designing a plastic-free, environment-friendly cover for "4," the new CD by his band Danzig. It cost him and American Recordings a reported $250,000 each to manufacture the cover.

But he should have checked with record stores first. The special cover doesn't fit the plastic security "keepers" many stores use to prevent theft, and some have elected not to carry the album at all or to keep it behind the counter, out of view of potential buyers.

Danzig, who plays the Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre on Monday, has now abandoned the plan for the next pressing of the album, which will be housed in a more conventional Digipak, which uses less plastic than the common jewel box case, but still much more than Danzig wanted.
