Yet another variant of the Monarch pressing. Labels have closer spacing found on Toots & The Maytals - Funky Kingston, but the jacket makes no mention of Island Music Inc. under publishing
Both the Side A label and back cover miscredit Richard Berry for writing A3 and F. Hibbert for writing A5, when these should be reversed.
Back cover mislists B3 as published by Number 11 Music, and no tracks published by Cherry Lane Music Co. The labels have correct indications of publishers.
