First 2,000 copies were pressed on opaque blue vinyl.
Original pressings, 20 Golden Greats, came with white on black boxed Capitol and EMI logos, a thin card inner sleeve advertising other Beach Boys albums.

Later repressing have retro1960's silver on black labels and plain paper inner sleeve. This version.

Most of the mixes are presented in Duophonic (fake stereo)

Due to the extremely tight spiral of the groove the audio is low in volume and reduced bass.
