The original 1973 pressings have the white Asylum label with the wooden cage logo. This label design was introduced in 1972 and used until the end of 1973.

The subsequent pressings have the blue clouds label. These were used throughout the 70s. The WEA logo was added in 1975. 80s pressings come with the black and orange labels.

Lyrics are printed on inner sleeve.
