The Liner Notes provided inside the Gatefold album cover are entitled "Home For The Holidays" instead of "Christmas at Home in America" and were used for all three 'Shell Wonderful World Of Music - Special Christmas Editions' (with the changes to the track list on the left to match the release)

The lower right area of the front of the release states "Special Christmas Edition" which was originally from the Shell' Wonderful World Of Music editions. The lower left of the front of the release states "Especially Processed for use on Stereo or Hi Fidelity Players", however the statement is no longer on the hub labels
