Some copies have a transparent sticker, with the title and text in black print, affixed to the front cover.

Beefheart was renowned for his "shopping bags", stuffed with notebooks, harmonicas & bric-a-brac.
(Vliet's constant 'sketching' of FZ in his notebooks led to some acrimony between the two during the "Bongo Fury" tour)
