A woman in contemplative mood at a bar, seems to be light years away. This photograph is surrounded by a wide wooden frame, with graphic created 'Saloon-like' swing doors added. Similar cover artwork can be found on many 'Capitol' releases from this era, especially the wooden frame seems to be something like a standard for the 10-inch albums.
The back of this 'Dixieland' record contains rather elaborate information about the artist in his heyday, beside a little picture.
