Original LP inner sleeve contained lyrics.

So when the record was in the inner sleeve the lyrics were complete.

This is a double LP in a single LP sleeve. Before each track EC describes the writing, recording, arranging and mixing of the record in enormous detail - explaining the thinking behind otherwise impenetrable lyrics. The front cover contains the same David Bailey photo as on the "Man Out Of Time" 12". These were numbered on the back, and most were signed by EC on the front in blue felt pen.
