Cartoon cover:
In 1973 TMOQ created a  generic  cartoon cover  with a die-cut center hole, and issued 18 or so of their titles as collector's items in this numbered volumes series.  The albums had a unique additional reference number that generally matched the 'Issue volume number' for that LP. It has been suggested that this LP could possibly have been included as a 1974 release in this series.

Front Cover
This great piece has a little bit of history. It was originally released in the US by TMQ in 1974. The cover was a deluxe color cartoon by William Stout as shown in the photo. The back cover contained a surrealistic 1974 Dylan drawing by R. Hoppe, a Norman Saxon story and song listings, as shown; with a TMQ original pig logo. The label was a full printed silver one. (gwa 74A). 

The cover was copied exactly except for the back cover logo, by the English Label FYG in 1974. It was released in a  thinner jacket on black vinyl with full printed black labels, and a  matrix  # FYG 7401   (gwa 74B). 

A 1976 TMQ reissue was simply a black & white xerox insert of the original front cover. As always, there was several slight package variations including full and die-cut jackets that were white or yellow; printed, blank, fake or '1 & 2' labels; and various insert colors (gwa 74C). 
Also issued as limited edition splatter vinyl

1978 saw the release of this piece by the US label K&S. They used the same master plates as the TMQ version. The cover was a pink insert with the K&S logo and reference # K&S 019 added. The labels were the generic 
GLC b/w Kornyfone. The vinyl was yellow. This is a rare piece with only one hundred pressings. (gwa 74D). 

In 1984 an unknown British label released a version that was a near copy of the '74 FYG release. It was pressed from a new master and had a blank or generic RTS label (Radio Transcription Service)  The matrix is: 
BSM 4 SIDE 3  (& small 'gB') / BSM 4 ASIDE 4. This is the actual piece that is photographed above.
