Recorded at our home in North Devon, England.
The backing for "The Moving Walkway" was recorded in a green pyramid in a field in Wales, Summer '78 on Nik Turner's 4-track. [Note : likely to be a recording of the rehearsal for Nik Turner's Live At Deeply Vale Free Festival 1978]

℗ & © 1982 Music Galore Ltd.

Poster (2' x 3' black & white, double-sided & designed for coloring) included with story line comics, lyrics, credits, and liner notes.

Early pressings have a 'Mother Gong' sticker (2" x 2" square, green with black text) affixed to the upper right front cover which identify the artist.

In the track-by-track credits, some song titles are different to the tracklist on back cover and labels :
- track A4 : "Walkway" instead of "The Moving Walkway"
- track A5 : "Marathon" instead of "The Upwardly Mobile Song"
- track A6 : "Elephants And Tigers" instead of "Tigers Or Elephants"
- track B5 : "My Life" instead of "Looking For"

Years ago Brian Leafe, Mr. Shanghai Records, told Planet Gong that all his Gong related releases, (Death of Rock, Ex Don't Stop and Robot Woman 2 and 3) were one off pressings of 3000 copies and no more were ever manufactured. Such information I wouldn't trust from most record label CEOs, but Brian was a decent chap (too decent to remain in the music biz in fact), and so I'd take those figures as definitive.

Month of release information from Record Collector Magazine March 1994 p.116

    Looking for just the vinyl record. I have a copy of the jacket on its own because someone put the wrong record in the jacket.
