Notes: 1) Album does not come with track-by-track musician credits, except for Mike Baird’s and Sandy Allen’s. However, it is a well-known fact that the bass player on track 2 (“Sara Smile”) is Lee. 2) According to web sources, the US CD reissue is inclusive of the same two above-indicated bonus tracks and was released on Buddha 99754. 3) Original album packaging comes in the shape of a silver-laminated cover with a color lyrics/credits/picture insert. Japanese CD reissue comes instead with a two-tone cardboard sleeve in place of the original silver artwork, plus a two-tone lyrics/credits/discography insert with no photograph. 4) Insert in Japanese reissue includes lyrics for both bonus tracks, yet no musician credits are indicated for these. 5) Above picture is of the original US LP release. See below for the Japanese CD reissue cover artwork. 6) Following credits were taken from the US LP release. 7) According to web sources, a 2009 remix of track 6 “Gino (The Manager)” was included in the quadruple anthology “Do What You Want Be What You Are - The Music of Daryl Hall & John Oates” released in the US on RCA Legacy 88697 36974 2 (2009).
