On back cover, the trombonist's name George Bohanon is spelled as George Bohannon, but on the inner sleeve it's spelled correctly and has been submitted accordingly.

On inner sleeve, Philip Bailey (vocals) is spelled as Phillip Bailey and Jon Lucien (vocals) is spelled as Jon Lucian.

Also, pictured at number 6 on the inner sleeve photo of the musicians and personnel, is Greg Rogers [see images], but he is not credited anywhere on the album, not on the cover, not on the labels and it remains unclear what his part in the album production was. Online research did not harvest additional information and the other Greg Rogers submissions on Discogs are all different people.
