Record Cover of the Week

Shel Silverstein - Boy Named Sue

Shel Silverstein: Boy Named Sue and His Other Country Songs

Playboy cartoonist, children’s author and songwriter Shel Silverstein looks “more like a criminal or pirate than a guy who writes poems for kids” on the cover of his 1969 record of country songs. I don’t want to declare this the Album Cover of the Week, so instead I’ll just say it’s the Album of the Week.

    I love that guy! What a great storyteller … do you have a recording of him reciting “the Devil and Billy Markham”?
    Just for the record, he kept the playboy stuff and the kids stuff VERY spearate, in case anyone was wondering …
