Front cover shows Ann-Margret atop "Bye Bye Birdie," but without any credits underneath. I believe this is the second of three covers for this release: the first has no Ann-Margret; the third has credits under "Bye Bye Birdie."

Black label with silver print, white dog logo, "Living Stereo" at bottom.

Based upon the musical play "Bye Bye Birdie".

The song "One Last Kiss" was never sung to completion by Jesse Pearson in the film, and was recorded in the RCA Victor Hollywood Studios.
