Notes First cat# on the labels and in the runouts, second cat# on spine. Comes in a printed inner sleeve with liner notes to all musicians.
On backcover: That hip band of unsettling size, takes a dare, with only one glance over the shoulder to that old boxer sportin' a tattered shadow. The crew is mean, flashy, burns curves in all the right places. Heads turn down on Fingersnap road "When ya'll comin' back?" Not to worry, The easy chair'll stay warm. We'll come to your town, your neighborhood, we'll come to your house, and eat all your food. Set the table for twenty-five.
