Packaged in a gatefold jacket with custom-printed Sundazed company inner sleeves made of brown kraft paper.

Tracks B & D were originally credited to just Don Vliet [prior to his name-change]. So, they are certainly quasi-repro A&M labels. Mortensen's 'Services call-up' caused St. Clair to go on drums, with Hepner replacing. However, by 'Moonchild' P.G. was back on drums - so the sleeve crediting is questionable.
Cover, L-to-R; Moon, Handley, Hepner, Vliet, St. Clair [he never used Snouffer - a Buddah credit error on Mirror Man]
