I've seen a New Zealand release of this with a different cover using the same 'Judy in foliage' shot used on the record club and JC1 discs.

The 'Satin Doll' is the Duke Ellington number.

Elektra EKS 74058 (Stereo)
Released: July 1970
Production: Jac Holzman, Mark Abramson, Paul A Rothchild, Bruce Botnick, Arthur Lee
Includes the last 'classic' Love A-Side 'Your Mind and We Belong Together', which was not on any of their main albums.
Elektra EKS 74059 (Stereo)
A wierd album of covers: basically for playing at your (presumably drunken) party and advertised as being 'better than the real thing'. The sleeve is notable for the hair styles of the band. This is the album Jac Holzman says he would prefer to forget (or prefer was forgotten). On the plus side, their version of 'In A Gadda-Da-Vida' is shorter than the original by Iron Butterfly.

Some copies also included a radio station promotion single with an interview.
Elektra EKS 74061 (Stereo)

Not to be confused with Roxy Music. The sleeve of this album is notable because it includes a photo of famed Elektra sleeve supremo William S Harvey.

Production: George Sherman
Comedy album recorded live at the Bitter End in New York. This is a rare album to bear the credit Production Supervisor Keith Holzman. In the UK this number was used for a single-LP version of 'Relics of the Incredible String Band'.
Elektra EKS 74065 (Stereo)
Production: Joe Boyd, Whitchseason Productions
Single album release in the UK. The sleeve lists the UK String Band albums as EKS 7254, 7257 and 7258 rather than EUKS with the same numbers, which is confusing as these numbers were sound effects discs in the US but is how the LPs were listed for a while before the Kinney K notation came into force.
I've seen a German release of this single-LP version which uses the American cover.
This number was used for David Steinberg's album 'Disguised as a Normal Person' in the US. This potentially confusing double use of a catalogue number seems to have only occurred with ISB and the use of BRD 1 for a Bread compilation and a 'private' release of an eastern 'mystical' music album on Elektra.

The UK Polydor editions of this disc have a misprint on the back cover saying the discs were 'Manufacturered'.
Elektra EKS 74067 (Stereo)
Some US copies had a sticker added, just above the building gable in the top centre, with the band name. The existing band name, scratched into the bottom step, presumably was thought to be unclear or even invisible.
Elektra EKS 74068 (Stereo)
Production: Paul Samwell-Smith
Two cover variations exist with different pictures on the rear cover: one of the band and one of a baby. Released in UK on Island Records ILPS 9114 with yet another cover.

Featuring Iggy Pop. Rhino records released a limited edition (3000 copies) set of seven CDs of the entire Fun House sessions. It included the album as originally issued plus mono single mixes of 'Down On The Street' and 'I Feel Alright' which were released as single EKM-45695. Extra tracks from the session, apart from alternate takes of the album, were: 'Lost In The Future' and 'Slide [Slidin' The Blues]' (which may be a jam). The set also notes that 'LA Blues' was originally called 'Freak'.

Elektra EKS 74079 (Stereo)
Released: November 1971
Some (earlier?) copies include an inner sleeve with a photo of Jim Morrison holding a lamb ... yes ... that photo! The version of 'Light My Fire' is the long, album, version.
There was also an earlier cover design seen on at least one white label copy distributed internally at Elektra which featured a very large '13' on the cover but was possibly rejected because you had to look closely at the image to see Jim! Pity, as this was a very striking design.
It did, however, appear on copies in (at least) Venezuela, occupying the otherwise vacant EKS 75009.

This band was once called Anthrax ... hence the album title.

David Frye was the comedian who 'did' Richard Nixon. The radio jingles on this album come authentically from the Dallas heartland of radio jingledom. The 'Hail to the Chief ... Dick Nixon' jingle is a showstopper.

CD reissue in 1995 in the Elektra Traditions series from Rhino. Some copies of this, probably just in Europe, have the prefix EKX which may well mean 'extra cost' because of the intricate die-cut sleeve. The European sleeve changed to a single layer.
Elektra EKS 74087 (Stereo)
Based on the UK release on Dandelion and jointly labelled 'Dandelion'. A notable extra inclusion on this version is 'The Stride', which was originally released in the UK as a single credited to Coyne-Clague, the band's earlier name.
Elektra EKS 74088 (Stereo)
Production: David MacKay for Leon Henry Productions
Licensed from Philips in Europe. This seemes a curious deal for Elektra, since the New Seekers were unashamedly MOR/Pop ... but Jac has been quoted as saying he was interested in a band he could choose music for and especially as a vehicle for Harry Chapin songs.

Re-sleeved version of UK album of the same name, originally released on B&C CAS 1026 in September 1970. Their previous LP, just called Atomic Rooster, wasn't picked up by Elektra and AFAIK wasn't released in the US. The British release sleeve featured a moody extract from a William Blake painting showing 'man' on all fours, looking fearfully behind him. IMHO this was a rare instance of the Elektra cover not being as good as the UK original. Usually, when Elektra/Bill Harvey re-sleeved an LP, it produced a better result.
