The re-release liner notes state that the band photos on the inside booklet of the original pressing were removed due to people complaining of electrostatic shock from the photos. They replaced said photos with a live band photo of unknown origin with lyrics printed over it. "Marching Song" is actually a short instrumental track comprised almost solely of kazoo and fart noises. Early versions of tracks 6, 15, and 19 were released on their 1994 release, Gob.
