Translucent yellow vinyl with a small hole in yellow/purple on opff-white Gypsum board sleeves. 1300 numbered copies plus 52 promo copies. 14 numbered copies [#2487 - 2500] were packed with maroon vinyl copies as IPR ran out of yellow vinyl - too many yellow vinyl promos were mailed out!

All of the disks were supposed to have a large centre hole but the pressing plant forgot for the black vinyl which was pressed a month before the other colours.

These tracks can also be found on the Aluminum Tunes compilation but with different titles.

It took over a year from us delivering the masters to IPR and the eventual IPR release and in the meantime we changed the titles but by then it was too late for IPR to change the artwork.

A set of stamps came with each disk and with the overages a book of stamps was produced.

A 7x7" insert of liner notes and a booklet of 12 "The In Sound" stamps. There is also a sheet of 12 stamps attached to the inside of the gatefold style jacket. Also a 4x4" insert "explanation" of some errors in the release.

A-side plays at 45 RPM.
B-side plays at 33 ⅓ RPM.

Design for the artwork comes from Gary McFarland's 1966 release on Verve (V6-8632), also titled "The In Sound."
