- The album reached #36 in the US and was certified Gold by the R.I.A.A. in March of 1994
- The album's cover depicts an uncensored (in many territories) picture of a woman's breasts, while The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking had another woman's buttocks censored, in the United States, after a large amount of controversy.
- For no apparent reason, on the American issue, the Ummagumma recording of "Astronomy Domine" replaces the original recording on the UK edition.
- Each of the images on the cover depicts a well-known phrase or saying in the form of a visual pun; for instance, the centre right-hand panel on the front depicts "a fork in the road", while the bottom right represents "a pretty kettle of fish", and so on. Initial copies had a picture of Dr. Phang's dental office on the cover and then was edited to feature a gargling monk. The US covers had a purple and white Pink Floyd A Nice Pair sticker covering the pictures of naked women.
