|Studio album by|
|Released||4 March 1997|
There are three versions of the album. The original, rare, independently released version has the hidden song "Melanie" before the first song. The version released on Hybrid/Sire Records has the hidden song as the eleventh track. The third version is a bad CD pressing of the album which contains "Melanie" as the first track while "Getting Even" and "Bury Me" are combined as a single track. This was only distributed to members of Guster's rep program.
Additionally, the album was released on vinyl in 2017 and 2019.
Due to the limited budget of the album, no B-sides were recorded apart from a song called "Happy Birthday Ken" which was a gift to Ken Goldman, who had housed the band in California while they were recording.
In concert, it is a tradition for fans to throw ping-pong balls onto the stage at the end of "Airport Song". This is done in reference to the game of ping-pong that can be heard as the music fades at the end of the studio track.
