Recorded at 25 September 1966 at Walldorf Tonstudio in Mörfelden-Walldorf near Frankfurt.
First cat# on label, second on sleeve.
The title appears on back sleeve and labels.
The (German) liner notes read that "Emil Mangelsdorff is the spiritus rector of the Swinging Oildrops" - so, other than on later re-releases "EM Swingin Oil Drops" appears to be the name of the band.
On back sleeve the band is also written "E.M. Swinging Oil Drops".
