One Chelsea track was included on this various artists sampler LP, likely prior to the late Jan./early Feb. release date of the full Chelsea LP. This format was similar to the Warner Bros. "loss leaders" which put tracks from popular artists on cheaper compilation albums to allow buyers to sample artists offerings in hopes that they'd then purchase the more expensive full albums. It would seem quite possible that the compilation was released in other countries too. The Canadian version is subtitled "The MCA Sound Conspiracy by Bill Levy" and is identical to the US version, except for having "Printed In Canada" on the lower-left of the front cover, and a manufacture detail box on the lower-right of the rear cover. The vinyl is pressed by the Compo Company...
