The front cover photo of John and Yoko was taken in Queen Charlotte's Maternity Hospital in Hammersmith, London, where Yoko had a miscarriage.
The back cover photo was taken outside the Marylebone court by the Daily Mirror as J&Y were leaving the court on 28 Nov 1968.
The track "Cambridge 1969" was recorded live at Lady Mitchell Hall (Cambridge, England) before a crowd of 500. Rolling Stone described Yoko's vocals as sounding like "a severely retarded child being tortured."
