Notes

This album was the idea of graphic designer Barney Bubbles (famous for his work on the classic early Hawkwind sleeves or with Elvis Costello and F-Beat records). He chose all of the cover versions on side one and after recording the originals onto a cheap cassette recorder he took them to the band. But there was a catch: he only let them hear the songs -once- ...cue various members scribbling down chords/lyrics/etc. The band then had to re-assemble the songs from these scraps of information.
While a full LP it came in a printed 12" single sleeve (no edge spine).

The disc says 33 1/3 but I think it's supposed to be played at 45. Can anybody confirm?

Track listing on the rear cover is wrong in that "Light Show" is actually track 9 and "World of LSD" is track 5 in the actual running order. The record label has slightly different song titles listed compared to the rear cover!
