Additional Information

Comments UK 1st press (A1U/B1U & A1U/B2U).
Subsequent pressings (A1U/B4U & A2U/B4U), have a different label layout, please see [r=459829].

Some variant versions of this release have Side A ending in a locked groove.

This release has an innovative 8-page, 3-fold die-cut heavy card sleeve. Opened out, it forms a 'T' shape. This shape is printed black & white on inside and full-color on reverse.

When the lower page is folded up (to contain the liner) the sleeve then takes the form of a 6-page triptych - with the die-cut tab & slot linking together at the center. When locked 'closed' the liner/vinyl can still be inserted via the top opening.

The back cover has a blurred shot of Stacia dancing on-stage, with text that encapsulates the essence of the work:
"Technicians of Space Ship Earth
This is Your Captain Speaking
Your Captain is Dead"

"Printed and made by the E. J. Day Group, London and Bedford".

[The inside spread photos include members of The Pink Fairies].

The package also contains an A4, 24-page 'Log Book', packed with the minutiae of the band's 'flight' through space & time. This 'Log' is printed black on white 'newspaper-quality' paper.

Produced at Olympic Studios, Barnes. Track B2 first recorded at Air Studios.
