1) De B-kant van "54-46 was my number" is foutief aangeduid als "Monkey Man" van de Maytals (Nederlandse persing).

1) Flipside of "54-46 was my number" has wrongly been credited to "Monkey Man" by The Maytals (Dutch pressing).

2) "96 tears" is geen Reggae, maar toch doet het orgeltje denken aan vroege Reggae-platen.

2) "96 tears" is not a Reggae song, but the organ sounds like the organs on early Reggae recordings.
