I believe that picture is on the cover of Yazoo's Before the Blues Vol. 2. Great image.

Elijah mentioned that in his PWBG post. I didn't copy or quote his post (just the link) as I thought that would be inappropriate, but mentioning the Yazoo cover is probably within the bounds of propriety and something that I should have done. Elijah followed up with the following link:

Not many, but at least there are some!

The 6 & 7/8 String Band rules!! Lots of solo stuff by Doc Souchon is very odscure but great too.
There's a rather recent CD by Lars Edegran's Triolian String Band which I'd recommend as well to anybody who like the 6&7/8s!!
