"You gotta see the album cover for this. It shows Charlie and Ira standing in front of a 12-foot-high plywood Lucifer that they set on fire--and almost ended up setting themselves on fire. Go and take a look." --Bob Dylan

"Ira built that set. The devil was twelve feet tall, built out of plywood. We went to this rock quarry and then took old tires and soaked them in kerosene, got them to burn good. It had just started to sprinkle rain when we got that picture taken. Those rocks, when they get hot, they blow up. They were throwing pieces of rock up into the air." --Charlie Louvin
