Columbia released a vinyl version of the single in the US.
The recordings released on the album were recorded for the purposes of John Peels Top Gear Show which ran on BBC Radio 1. All of the songs were recorded on the 24th of February 1970. Songs such as Dominoes or Love Song were recorded during the session, too, but the tapes got lost from the BBC archive.
