Thirty-year-old Connie Smith seems a breathtaking fit for the outdoors in an image originally featured as the album cover of “Ain’t We Havin’ Us a Good Time,” released in April 1972 on RCA Victor. Decades later it was excavated for the cover of Bear Family Records’ exhaustive box set, “Just for What I Am,” unleashed on February 28, 2012. Bear Family is a Germany-based independent record label that specializes in reissues of archival material. Image Credit: Bear Family Records
