The album is named after King's Record Shop in Louisville, Kentucky, which was owned by Pee Wee King's younger brother, Gene. A photograph of Rosanne Cash standing in the shop's doorway is featured on the cover, though she was never actually at the shop for the photo. Veteran steel guitarist Hank DeVito took the photo of the record shop and one of Rosanne standing as she is in the photo. He superimposed her into the record shop photo (Music City News magazine, August 1987).
Sony BMG controversially used their XCP technology on the album when it was re-released in 2005 as part of its American Milestones series.
