These Aren't the Droids You're Looking For [1] [2] [3]
Morocco [Beaver] [1] [2] [3]
Absence Without leave [Beaver] [1] [2] [3]
There is a misprint in the liner notes: track 3 is Morocco, track 4 is AWOL. All of the 'who played what' info is still correct, but the titles were reversed.

The green CD
comes with a different matrix number and is pretty hard to find.

The Vinyl
The 10" vinyl is a sort of marble swirl of cream and light green. They're fairly easy to get on Ebay.

Star Wars
This Star Wars reference is printed upside down, backwards, and on the right side of the inner liner of the 10":

Luke I am
Your father
Come with
Me to the
Dark side
Of the
Force boy

Also, the song These Aren't the Droids You're Looking For is a reference to the line from Star Wars that O.B. Wan Kenobi says to a storm trooper at Mos Eisley on Tatooine:

TROOPER: How long have you had these droids?
LUKE: About three or four seasons.
BEN: They're for sale if you want them.
TROOPER: Let me see your identification.
(Luke becomes very nervous as he fumbles to find his ID
while Ben speaks to the Trooper in a very controlled voice.)
BEN: You don't need to see his identification.
TROOPER: We don't need to see his identification.
BEN: These are not the droids you're looking for.
TROOPER: These are not the droids we're looking for.

BEN: He can go about his business.
TROOPER: You can go about your business.
BEN: (to Luke) Move along.
TROOPER: Move along. Move along.
