Special thanks to The Meditations for the Backing Voices (sleeve note)

This LP features the first mix which has a dryer sound and fewer effects than the later mix with only a little reverb, delay and phasing added.

Original first-pressing sleeve has blue vertical bars. Some sleeves were handpainted by Jah Wise to cover up the blue bars with yellow.
