    This may be a stupid question, but how do we know that this release is called "No Tears," and is not simply self-titled, as all evidence points to? Where on the label or spine does it give the title as being "No Tears"? Admittedly, the only copy I own of this is the 2013 Superior Viaduct re-issue, but as far as I can tell, none of the issued versions of this release specifically indicates a title at all. In fact, if this was to be named after any song on the EP, wouldn't it make more sense for it to be named "New Machine" (i.e., the first track on Side A) as would be traditional for a release that has no other specified title? Are we getting this from promotional materials at the time, or what? Seriously, what am I missing?

      There is an Lp-sized insert with my copy, glossy thick paper, onesided. "TUXEDOMOON FUN FOR ALL AGES. FOR INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO PLAY THE TUXEDO MOON GAME 519 CASTRO S.F. 94114. 415 8637594"
      Is this to be considered as regular insert or does it not belong to this release?
