Released on Atlantic rather than Stax as Atlantic owns copyright of all nationally distributed Stax singles recorded between 1959-68.

Booklet only lists producers when the original singles listed them; consequently, most tracks do not have producers listed.

1-7 is incorrectly credited to "Rufus & Friend" ("Friend" is actually Carla Thomas); due to the fact that the single release was originally credited to "Rufus & Friend"

3-3 listed as "Mo' Onions" actually plays its B-side, "Tic-Tac-Toe". This error appears to have been present until at least 1994, as it is on a later repress which has SID codes.
