My copy has a silk-screened front and back cover, much like Arthur's Tower of Meaning was silk-screened.

some copies of this have the back cover glued upside down. should they be entered in the database as a different version? some people say they identify the 1st pressing, but the copy I bought the year of release or so had the back cover straight - and came with a large sticker pasted over frot cover.
Also, there seem to be colo variations in the silkscreen ink used (grey - green - white?)

This record is so weird in a wonderful way... :-D

The title is a nod to the improvised nature of the recordings - Arthur Russell arranged the tracks so the rhythm would change every 24 bars.

Once again, Arthur Russell made a crypto-house/disco that makes almost no sense-but Larry Levan caned this record at the Paradise Garage. Levan was always driven by 'disco' that didn't quite make sense, and thus his love of Russell's extraordinary records.
