The jacket states "The computer-output sheet included in this album is one of 10,000 different numbered solutions of the program KNOBS. It enables the listener who follows its instructions to become a performer of this recording of HPSCHD. Preparation of this material was made possible through the Computing Center of the State University of New York at Buffalo." However, the printouts are sequentially numbered and go to numbers higher than 10,000.

The recording of side A was made possible through use of the facilities of the Experimental Music Studio and the Department of Computer Science of the University of Illinois, Urbana.
Side B is a Dolby-system recording.

First pressing: no bottom rim text on the labels, no 'W' logo on the release.
