Эта грампластинка печаталась на различном цветном виниле (разноцветные брызги, голубой, прозрачный голубой, прозрачный оранжевый, прозрачный жёлтый и т.д.). Но в большинстве случаев пластинки были выпущены на прозрачномй голубом виниле. Степень прозрачности этого винила можно увидеть на Рис. 1.
Имеется информация, что на виниле в виде разноцветных брызг были изданы только первые 250 копий.
