The original cut of "Have Love Will Travel", which is a Sonics through Richard Berry cover, was first released on Thickfreakness. "Heavy Soul (Alternate)" differs from the version released on The Big Come Up. "No Fun" is a Stooges cover.
The 7" vinyl single has been pressed on several different colors (black, pink, red, purple and most recently turquoise). "The Moan" got its name from time spent working on the N25 South Ringroad in Cork under the tutelage of Engineering Superstar Jimmy "The Moan" Kelly.
