LP Artwork: Shirley Horn - Travelin' Light

Here we have a memorable photo of Shirley Horn surrounded by her fine array of matching luggage!

The album's title - Travelin' Light - is The rarely-heard Johnny Pate number, Yes, I Know When I've Had It, that features in this week's program is from this album which was recorded over two separate sessions (February 9th and October 19th) in 1965.

Although the album's title was based on the Johnny Mercer lyric to the opening number, Trav'lin' Light, I wonder why the label wasn't faithful to it, by adding the extra "e"?
Here are two examples of the cover artwork, one that probably resembles the original more accurately, and the other in glorious, bold technicolor!
