    AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT:
    Here we see the band members at a show selling "Tonic for Your Soul". Ray is on stage, wearing a six-gun, telling us the benefits of taking the medicine, while John calls attention to the show with a bass drum. I see that Jance is wearing a gun as well. Must be a tough crowd!

    Does anyone know who drew this picture?

    A DR. HOOK FUN FACT:
    For his position at CBS in London as artistic director, RosΕ‚aw Szaybo designed many compilation-album covers. This is one of the best examples of his skill in perfectly combining drawing and photography, which would later go on to symbolize his classic style.

    #1 Shel wrote so many songs from ballads to love songs to satire. Also children's songs like "The Unicorn" (the Irish Rovers). He was a very talented man. ;o)
