This famous photo of Jim with his collie, Cheyene, was taken in October 1963 in Jim's backyard. It graced the cover of the "Touch Of Sadness" album. Interestingly, it was really a black-and-white photo. But Jerry Bradley of RCA called the photographer, Les Leverett, on the spur of the moment and asked him if he could hand-color it. So Les tinted the photo with oils -- and did such a great job most people assume it was a color photograph to begin with.
