The album art on the front cover is a photograph from a railroad crossing near the western suburb of Douglasville, taken by London photographer Sam Taylor-Wood. Taken in by the American South and given complete artistic freedom, she shot thousands of photos during her week-long trip. It included other towns like Unadilla and Forsyth in Georgia, a place which she says he talks fondly of. While she also visited Peachtree Road in the Buckhead area, she thought it was too busy for the album's more mellow nature. She picked several photos to present to him, and he picked the one which was used. Other photos from the shoot appear on the back and in the included CD and SACD booklet.
Despite its generally positive reviews, Peachtree Road was one of John's leanest-selling contemporary efforts, reaching #17 US upon its release, yet only managing #21 in the UK, making it one his rare albums to miss the Top 10 in his homeland.
It was dedicated to the memory of Gus and Sheila Dudgeon.
