A sequence of photos from an NSG ad in Songwriter's Review. The date of the ad is unknown, but believed to be late '60s or early '70s. The top right photo is not from NSG's own studio at all, but rather a studio in Macon that was used to cut some masters sessions on Rayna Leggett and Charles Vickers. In the bottom left photo, that's Rayna at (near, actually) the microphone, with Bob Quimby on piano, Jim Matherly on guitar (far left), Dick Egan on bass (far right) and an unknown drummer. Some of Rayna's recordings are documented on the Tropical page; she also recorded for King. Regarding the photo at bottom right, in addition to being NSG officers, Bob Quimby and Virginia Kniering were also husband and wife.
