The image was shot by photographer Jim Marshall one morning in the band’s home of Macon, Georgia.
The group were not very happy about being woken up early to shoot (“we figured it didn’t make a damn bit of difference what the cover was or what time we took it,” said guitarist Dickey Betts). Normally the band hated being photographed; the cover of later retrospective release The Fillmore Concerts shows them displaying terminal boredom.
Jim Marshall stenciled the album title on one of the road cases, which were stacked in front of the wall.
