The original vinyl record had “Side A” printed on one side of the label and “Side 1″ printed on the other, a humorous touch reflecting the band’s conviction that they didn’t have any “B” material, although the placement of the track listing on the jacket seemed to indicate “Hot Love” was the first track on the album. Indeed, the matrix numbers on the record show the “Hot Love” side was designated side A and the “Elo Kiddies” side as side B. When the album was released on compact disc in the mid-1980s, it followed the same sequence. However, when the album was reissued on CD in 1998, the band’s preferred sequence was used, with “Elo Kiddies” being the first track. [1]

The 1998 reissue of Cheap Trick was released with five bonus tracks, including an early studio version of their later hit “I Want You to Want Me“.
