Packaged in a Digipak with a die-cut front cover and, around the spine, a photo-illustrated black obi that includes notes.

Initial copies sold by the Web Of Mimicry Online Store have 'rounded' die-cut 6-pointed stars on the front cover. Tzadik recalled them, however, gave WOM permission to sell a limited number of copies from its online store:
"This item has been RECALLED by Tzadik due to a minor die-cut error in the cardboard sleeve. John Zorn allowed us to take a box & send them out anyway -- could be something of a "collectors item", who knows?"

All other pressings since have 'sharp' edged 6-pointed stars die-cut in the front cover.

Hidden artwork is located behind the CD tray.

Produced, Mixed and Recorded at Forking Path, CA
Additional recording at The Chummery, Seattle, WA
Drums, Bass And Congas recorded at Big Blue Meanie, Jersey City, NJ
Mix finalized at Hide Street Studios, San Francisco, CA
