The photography that adorns the box front and the print inside is by Ray Stevenson and was taken in Tony Visconti’s flat in the summer of 1968.
Each single label is designed to reflect the way David presented many of his demos to publishers and record companies, featuring his own handwritten song titles and originally cut on EMIDISC acetates. The singles themselves are all mono and play at 45 rpm.
