Amy Grant performed with the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra (KSO) on October 20, 2006. The photo was taken after the show.

There are four different cover designs for this album:

I believe that after the first year, only the first one was used (and is still used for repressing)

Today, May 15th, marks the 35th anniversary of Amy Grant's UNGUARDED album. It was released in 1985 and was one of those early CDs. I was fortunate to find the old Japan-for-US pressing (CD 5060) which I'm informed probably sounds better than any remasters in later years.

The four cover pictures, apparently, on the bottom of the original LP spines, had a single letter code. It was either "W", or "O", or "R" or "D". The "D" picture (leftmost above), became the default for the album over the years.

The code 'Word' is for the label of the same name, obviously. Distributed by A&M in the early days.
