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.

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".

Notice the font size differences on Type 2 & 3 sleeves
for the title "Listen To The Band".

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