Matrix Note:
TMQ-2 released this LP several times from the same, original master plates. On each successive release, there is a minor matrix alteration from that of the previous run. These include scratched out and lined out past matrices in several different combinations. There are at least five separate runs identifiable by which matrix is scratched out and how. The differences are purely academic.

1974 saw the beginning of the TMQ-2 releases, and this was among them. There were several package variations. Originally they used remaining TMQ presses 'till they ran out. The original full TMQ-2 release included an all new insert with a 1974 photo, and black vinyl with the new 'Pig Daddy' label that has come to be known as  'Smokin' Pig'. With each successive run, some minor alteration was made in the matrix. 
As future runs were pressed and released, The insert was xeroxed from a previous insert and the insert quality deteriorated. The labels of subsequent releases were blank blue, and later blank white.

There has always been confusion as to the source tape for the fourteen tracks on this LP. According to the LP notes the tracks are a mixture of songs from the Minnesota tape, studio outtakes, and Witmark demos. 
While 'Naomi wise' is certainly from the 12-22-61 Minneapolis tape, all of the other tracks are from the Freewheelin' recording sessions that ran through the second half of 1962
