Newspaper on front album cover originally was a copy of the infamous "Dewey defeats Truman" issue of the Chicago Tribune. After the Chicago Tribune objected to the inclusion, the cover was changed to read "Dewei defeats Truman".
The billboards in the distance were originally Coca-Cola adverts, but were changed to the names of the band members due to the objections of Coca-Cola.
The waving man on the front cover is Hugh Syme, who was the cover designer, and also played piano on 'Different Strings'.
