This digipak CD was pressed in a single production run of 1000 copies. The first 500 copies were hand-numbered on the back cover and sold via mail order through Ralph America. The remaining unnumbered copies were sold on the 2010 Talking Light tour and through Ralph America again.

Since it was based on the unpredictable story line found in The Bunny Boy internet series, the Bunny performance also evolved over time, with new music being added to the show as it toured. Ultimately, some of the music written for the project was never used, so now these extraneous pieces of The Bunny Boy album will be released as "Arkansas":

- Track 1: this piece was not included on the album, but it opened The Bunny Boy touring show,
- Tracks 2, 4, and 7: alternative arrangements of songs from the album The Bunny Boy,
- Tracks 3, 5, 6, 8 and 10: written for The Bunny Boy album, but eliminated from the final version. Tracks 3 and 8 later appear on the compilation Ten Little Piggies,
- Track 9: instrumental version of a song performed live in Europe on The Bunny Boy tour.
