* The L.A. Express - was an American jazz-pop ensemble formed in 1973 as the backing band for jazz saxophonist Tom Scott.
The original lineup included:
Max Bennett - bass;
John Guerin - drums and percussion;
Larry Carlton - guitarist;
Joe Sample - keyboards.
The latter two were also members of the group The Crusaders.

** ODE (Ode Records) - a record label, started by Lou Adler in 1967.

*** Credited as "Pattie + Eric Clapton" but they are not performing on the album. This was a joke added by Harrison as a reference to his ex-wife Pattie Boyd leaving him for Eric Clapton.

The following misprints are observed:

The surname of Klaus Voormann is indicated as Voorman with one letter "n" at the end (on the back cover in "Ding Dong, Ding Dong" song credits).
Correct - Voormann.
In different places is different spelling of the song "BYE BYE LOVE" (on the label no comma).
Correct - BYE BYE, LOVE (with coma).
In different places is different spelling of the song "MAYA LOVE" (there is no tilde on the label above the letter A - a wavy line).
Correct - MÂYA LOVE (with tilde).


ПРИМЕЧАНИЕ:

Впервые альбом был издан в 1974 году (подробнее см. здесь). Данный вариант является переизданием 1980 года на бюджетном отделении компании EMI "Music For Pleasure".

Обычные внутренние пакеты могут быть совершенно различными и соответствовать тем типам, которые в то время использовала компания EMI.

Перечень музыкантов, игравших на альбоме, приведен в английской части страницы (взят с оборотной стороны обложки).

* The L.A. Express - поп-джазовый ансамбль сформированный в 1973 году в качестве аккомпанирующей группы джазового саксофониста Тома Скотта.
В оригинальный состав вошли:
Макс Беннетт - бас;
Джон Герен - ударные и перкуссия;
Ларри Карлтон - гитарист;
Джо Сэмпл - клавишные.
Двое последних были также членами группы The Crusaders.

** ODE (Ode Records) - звукозаписывающий лейбл, созданный Лу Адлером в 1967 году.

*** В кредитах указаны имена "Pattie + Eric Clapton", но они не принимали участие в альбоме. Это была шутка Харрисона в адрес его бывшей жены Пэтти Бойд, которая ушла к Эрику Клэптону.

Замечены следующие опечатки:

Фамилия Клауса Вурмана/Фурмана указана, как Voorman с одной буквой "n" в конце (на оборотной стороне обложки в кредитах к песне "Ding Dong, Ding Dong").
Правильно - Voormann.
В разных местах разное написание композиции "BYE BYE LOVE" (на этикетке пропущена запятая).
Правильно - BYE BYE, LOVE (с запятой).
В разных местах разное написание композиции "MAYA LOVE" (на этикетке над буквой А отсутствует тильда - волнистая черта).
Правильно - MÂYA LOVE (с тильдой).
