Between 1956 and 1961, Katie Lee recorded three albums about psychoanalysis that were later combined into one album and sold under the title of the original second album Songs of Couch and Consultation. This picture is from the photo shoot for the album cover. The final cover is a picture of Kate laying on a couch with her guitar and a man sitting near her head taking notes. The albums were satires about the popular psychoanalysis movement that was sweeping through Hollywood at the time.

Songs of Couch and Consultation is available to listen to online including on Youtube and Spotify.
