Why show a picture of Us Male / Stay Away? Hmm...Although entitled Stay Away Joe, and was loosely intended to promote the film, the LP was a mix of cuts from His Hand In Mine and How Great Thou Art and was produced for a radio station in Arizona - where the film was made. Another slice of the bizarre from Parker...I believe he owned this record and it became part of his estate inventory.
