<l> The Warner Brothers tape box that contains the master reels has the following message: 'Note: special phase effects on this tape. Do not change phase!'
<2> All mixing: PLA. Jimi: 'Some of the mix came out kind of muddy, not exactly muddy, but kind of bassy, because we didn't get a chance to do it completely till the end. We mixed it all and produced it and all this mess. But then when it was time for them to press it quite naturally they screwed up, 'cause they didn't know what we wanted. There's 3-D sound on there that's been used that you can't appreciate because like they didn't know how to cut it properly. They thought it was out of phase [laughs]!'
<3> The American and English covers are completely different. Jimi: 'People have been asking me about the English cover and I don't know anything about it. I didn't know it was going to be used.' - Mitch: 'We thought it was a load of rubbish. We didn't know anything about it until we came back from the States.'
<4> On several of the songs on this release Jimi also plays bass guitar. Mitch: 'There were some things where it was just faster to work just Jimi and myself. Some were cut guitar and drums, some just bass and drums, there was no set gauge for that.'
