Goodbye to all those who took everything & gave nothing.

Cover design and art direction was by John Kosh from an original idea by Ringo, and prepared by Andrew Ayers. The cover photography was by David Alexander. The back cover photo of the graffiti-adorned door of the Beatles’ former office on 3 Savile Row was by Tommy Hanley. The remaining sleeve photography in the inner gatefold [see Pic. 1-2] was by Mark Hanauer and David Alexander.
Some copies has blue round sticker with "Featuring the hit single DOSE OF ROCK 'N' ROLL" text including LP catalog number in black print was adhered to shrinkwrap.

On label can be found number with one of four different suffixes in the end: MO, PR, RI or LY. They mean the name of the plant where the record was pressed.
Number legend records label as an example ST-A-763709-MO means:
ST = stereo;
A = Atlantic Records label;
76 = last two digits of the year Atlantic first received source (tape) and started working on mastering;
3709 = tape master number (for side one in this example);
MO = Monarch Records pressing plant (Los Angeles, CA).
Suffixes in the other numbers means:
PR = Presswell Records Mfg. Co., Ancora, NJ;
RI = Philips Recording Co., Richmond, IN;
LY = Shelley Products - Huntington Station, NY.

Next to the matrix number also other handwritten characters are very difficult to make out. Presumably, they begin with the prefix and mean the mastering engineer Sam Feldman initials. In this period he worked at Atlantic Studios.

ПРИМЕЧАНИЕ:

Когда контракт с компанией EMI истёк, Ринго 10 марта 1976 года подписал новый контракт с Atlantic Records для издания своих произведений в США и Polydor - в остальных странах.

Сессия звукозаписи проходила в период с апреля по июнь 1976 года в студиях Cherokee (Лос-Анджелес, штат Калифорния) и Atlantic (Нью-Йорк). В сессии наряду с другими музыкантами приняли участие Джон Леннон и Пол Маккартни, но между собой они не пересекались. В англоязычной части примечания приведен полный список музыкантов, принимавших участие в записи. А также другие выходные данные пластинки (продюсер, инженеры записи, благодарности и т.д.).

Идея дизайна обложки и художественное оформление принадлежат Джону Кошу и исходят от оригинальной идеи Ринго, а воплотил их Эндрю Айерс. Лицевая фотография обложки сделана Дэвидом Александром. Фотография оборотной стороны обложки с граффити, украшающих двери бывшего офиса "Битлз" на Сэвил-Роу 3 сделана Томми Ханли. Остальные фотографии на внутреннем пакете и развороте альбомной обложки [см. Рис. 1-2] выполнили Марк Ханауер и Дэвид Александр.
Некоторые копии имеют синий круглый стикер (наклейку) на упаковочной плёнке с надписью "Featuring the hit single DOSE OF ROCK 'N' ROLL" и каталожным номером пластинки чёрным шрифтом.

На этикетках можно встретить номер с одним из четырёх различных суффиксов: МО, PR, RI или LY. Они означают название завода, на котором была изготовлена пластинка.
Расшифровка номера этикетки пластинки на примере ST-A-763709-MO означает:
ST = стерео;
A = компания Atlantic Records;
76 = последние 2 цифры года, в котором компания Atlantic впервые получила источник (плёнку) и приступила работать над мастерингом;
3709 = номер мастер-ленты (для первой стороны в нашем примере);
MO = Monarch Records – завод на котором была отпрессована пластинка (город Лос-Анджелес, штат Калифорния).
Символы в конце других номеров означают:
PR = завод Presswell Records Mfg. Co., город Анкора, штат Ню-Джерси;
RI = завод Philips Recording Co., город Ричмонд, штат Индиана;
LY = завод Shelley Products, Хантингтон Стейшин, штат Нью-Йорк.

Наряду с номером матрицы имеются ещё и другие рукописные символы, которые очень трудно разобрать. Предположительно они начинаются с префикса и означают клеймо инженера Сэма Фельдмана, изготавливавшего матрицы. Как раз в этот период времени он работал на студии Atlantic.
