The initial issue featured the painting (of moons or planets) by Didier Léon on the front of the gatefold cover, with liner notes written by Daevid Allen Subsequent issues included even one by BYG Actuel that was credited to Gong and had the photo from the gatefold inside on the front. The first UK pressing, in 1975 on Virgin Records subsidiary Caroline, had an alternative Daevid Allen drawn cover, featuring a peeled banana/moon playing a guitar.
GAS website reported an alternate mix of the CD would be available, entitled Stoned Innocent Frankenstein, containing: "Unreleased mixes and versions. A 'Camembert Eclectique' job for Bananamoon. Stunning unreleased mixes and totally radical head-altering versions unheard for over 30 years. Robert Wyatt's drumming more obvious on a couple of the tracks is amazing. It does make you wonder whether the correct 'final' mix was sent to the pressing plant - no they wouldn't have got that wrong, would they?. With a annotated and illustrated booklet."
