Release Notes: Released in June 1979 by Columbia. Produced by Tom Werman. Additional instruments: Genya Ravan, Ellen Foley (backing vocals on "Dr. Music" and "Mirrors"), Wendy Webb (backing vocals on "Lonely Teardrops"), Mickey Raphael (harmonica on "Dr. Music"), Jai Winding (strings on "In Thee").

Additional Notes: The printing on the CD incorrectly lists B. Abbott as "B. Abbot". The cover of the album is not a photo of a rearview mirror, but a painting by Loren Salazar (according to Eric Bloom, "quite famous in the Seattle area"). If you look closely on the left side of the album cover (you probably need a magnifying glass for the CD or cassette), two sperm cells can be seen painted in the clouds and sky. The song "The Vigil" originally had different lyrics by Patti Smith, and was titled, "Devil's Hangnail" or "The Devil's Nail". The song "Lonely Teardrops" was originally titled, "Wind In My Veins", with a vocal by Allen Lanier. According to Morning Final #8, the song "You're Not The One (I Was Looking For) was inspired by the Cars' song, "My Best Friend's Girl". According to Joe Bouchard, the "Dr. Music" was inspired by the Larry Williams' "Bony Moronie" and Roy Orbison's "Pretty Woman".
