Cover Front: RCA Victor logo and number at upper right. Title in any varying pitch of blue. Contents not printed on front. Stock may be either flat or glossy.
Cover Back: Catalog number upper right corner. Contents two rows across the top. Three columns of text. Title and artist centered across the top. The first release March 21, 1958 has the number LPM-1707 with "thirty-one grueling" text, a transitional back has LPM-1707 with "several rehearsal" text1, and a later 1958 pressing has LPM-1707 RE with "several rehearsal" text.

Other than the addition of the "RE" to the back, there is a significant and distinct difference between the LPM-1707 and LPM-1707 RE. From the LPM-1707 back, the beginning of the last sentence of the far left column begins with "After thirty-one grueling "takes" a satisfactory master was finally made, and at this point the boys took a coffee break." On the back of the LPM-1707 RE, the same sentence reads, "After several rehearsal "takes", a satisfactory master was finally made, and at this point the boys took a coffee break." The difference is "thirty-one grueling" was replaced with "several rehearsal". A transitional back exists where the "several rehearsal" exists on the LPM-1707 back without the RE in upper right corner2.
