Sides B and D each have a side-long locked groove, so the tracks B6 and D10 both end with a loop that repeats endlessly.

Track B5 is listed on the sleeve & centre labels without a comma, and track D4 is listed on the sleeve & labels without the "No. 2". The insert shows the full titles.

Just---odd. Tuxedo Moon meets The Residents meets synth pop like Depeche Mode. Sounds good to me!

"Dance" (B6) leads into one of the most brilliant and nerve-wracking endless loops since "Sgt. Pepper".
Groovy in a perverted way.
You don't want it to stop.
And it won't.
