Notes

Album sides on this reissue release are reversed from the original US Atlantic Records release - Side A on the original Atlantic pressings started with Formentera Lady, on this copy it starts with Ladies of the Road. The CD release from the same time period, also on EG Records, retains the original running order.

Custom color inner sleeve with photos. lyrics, & credits, taken from inside of original gatefold cover. Inner sleeve still lists tracks in original side order, unlike the vinyl labels.

Sticker on shrink wrap says "Editions E.G. Half Speed Mastered Collectors' Edition"

Equipment by Vick and Mike.

Outer cover illustration "Trifid Nebula in Sagittarius' by courtesy of The Institute of Technology and Carnegie Institution of Washington.
