This was only distributed to members of Guster's rep program. Additionally, the album was released on vinyl in 2017 and 2019. Due to the limited budget of the album, no B-sides were recorded apart from a song called "Happy Birthday Ken" which was a gift to Ken Goldman, who had housed the band in California while they were recording. In concert, it is a tradition for fans to throw ping-pong balls onto the stage at the end of "Airport Song". This is done in reference to the game of ping-pong that can be heard as the music fades at the end of the studio track. A sample of the guitar riff and bongos from "Rocketship" can be heard in "Pot Of Gold" on the rapper Game's R.E.D. Album. (en)
