There's something unique and disquieting in Don Peterson's pixilated photo of the band.   It's like something out of one of those '80s B horror flicks - the spooks are coming through the TV to grab your soul.  Anyhow, the cover was actually far better than the album itself.

I must have owned this album a decade before the grisly back panel made an impact.  I'm sure I'd actually seen the image, but for some odd reason the sight of two men hanging from an old tree just never registered with me.   Truly disturbing - though the album itself is a classic, if virtually unknown country-rock release.
