A dye transfer print measuring 13 7⁄8 by 21 11⁄16 inches (35.2 by 55.1 cm), Eggleston considers it among his most challenging and powerful works, "so powerful that, in fact, I've never seen it reproduced on the page to my satisfaction".
It has been described as Eggleston's "most famous photograph," with "some indefinable sense of menace". It is widely recognised as the album cover for the record Radio City (1974) by the Memphis band Big Star.
