- Never had any issues with my original U.K. pressing which I bought on release, it sounds amazing to this day.
- The copy of this EP that came paired with the Canadian Vertigo edition of Treasure sounds AMAZING compared to the regular UK. The Vertigo Treasure is also the best sounding of all the incarnations I've ever heard of this album. I have the UK, Japanese, 180 Vinyl, and the terrible 4AD reissue as comparisons.
- Rococo is the bee's knees here/a Cocteau Twins instrumental that starts out like the slow rising of the sun and then suddenly and out of nowhere EXPLODES into piercing beams of sunlight....
- "Aikea-guinea" is, according to Robin Guthrie, an old Scottish collaquialism for a seashell. Hence the artwork.
Kookaburra is a large Australian kingfisher bird.
