Picture Sleeves:

Type 1


Type 2


Type 3

All the sleeves are the East Coast versions,
with no thumb tabs.

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. (Type 1)

However, DJs began to recognize the superiority of the B-side,
and this justified Colgems making an updated picture sleeve (Type 2)
with "Listen To The Band" above "Someday Man".

However, at some point in time, Type 3 was created,
with the flipped titles on each side. This is the only copy I've seen.
The LTTB song title is shorter in length, compared to Type 2.

The credits at the bottom denote the B-side of the sleeve.
