Annotation

The original cover showed a toilet next to the group in the bathtub. It was quickly pulled and a scroll mentioning included hits was placed over it to cover up this gross indecency. There are also artwork differences between mono and stereo pressings and later pressings included an RIAA certified gold seal. Please don’t merge releases with different artwork.
