Waylon & Jessi: Leather & Lace

Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter - Leather and Lace.  This is the back cover of the album, which I think has a better photo than the front cover.  Waylon is wondering and perhaps even waiting, and Jessi is being coy.   This is on the RCA Victor label - it is the the couple's first album together, though they had sung some individual duets together.  Based on the ablum title, I wanted to play the title track song - but it's NOT on the album.  What happened apparently - just my guess - is that Stevie Nicks was hired (maybe more like commissioned) by Waylon to write a single for this album which would have been the title cut, however the song does not appear on this record - anywhere.  Nicks, maybe (probably) thinking the song was too good to give up, she ended up recording it with Don Henley and it ended up on the her Bella Donna album, where it became a top ten hit in 1981.
