Picture Sleeves:

Type 1


Type 2

Both sleeves are East Coast versions.

What is East Coast?

Someday Man, the original A-side was heavily promoted in trade ads
and was designated as the 'plug side' on the promo single.

However, DJs began to recognize the superiority of the B-side,
and this justified Colgems making an updated picture sleeve
with "Listen To The Band" above "Someday Man".

The weird thing is that this is one of the few sleeves
that didn't highlight the B-side on the reverse,
which forced them to print up these second picture sleeves.
