From the site:

Even at the age of seventy, Jerry Williams Jr. comes off as the class clown, bragging about such mischief as sneaking a deceptively sweet-sounding description of a woman’s bad breath into the otherwise tender, and oft-covered, “She’s All I Got.” (A foul smell, he insists, is the true meaning of the line “She could kiss the ground in wintertime and make a flower grow.”) But he can’t conceal the smarts, shrewdness, and savvy beneath his eccentricity. The titular cover art he dreamed up for the album Rat On!—an image of him in polyester threads, striking a victorious pose astride a giant, white rat—has accomplished exactly what he intended: enduring notoriety. He’s pretty damn proud of the fact that it consistently lands on lists of the all-time worst album covers.
