The Canadian version has the "jacket" made in Canada and the disc made in USA

Track A4's running time is written as 6:66 on the disc label.

"Hard Road" was re-named "Wring That Neck" on the European version of the album.

The booklet of the 2000 rerelease gives wrong informations it cialms that "Oh No No No" is Ben E. King's cover and writters of "It's All Over" are unknown. The fact is that "It's All Over" is Ben E. King's cover .The booklet also gives more informations about "Oh No No No", it was remastered from an acetate and it's origin is forgotten by the bandmembers.

Recording information:

Recorded August 1968 at De Lane Lea Studios, London, England
