- Several sources (including the usually reliable Allmusic) misidentify track 3 as "The Sea Uncertain." This title, correctly rendered, appears to refer playfully both to a track on Gastr's previous full-length release titled "The C in Cake" and to one of Gastr percussionist John McEntire's other bands, The Sea and Cake, a moniker derived from McEntire's mishearing of that title. The title "Our Exquisite Replica of "Eternity"" is derived from the name of a cheap perfume marketed in public bathroom vending machines; the track contains a sample of the music used in the 50s sci-fi classic The Incredible Shrinking Man.
- "Dry Bones in the Valley" is a cover of a John Fahey song, which features Tony Conrad on violin.
