Original Vinyl Information:

AB-990, ABC Records. Embossed album cover with gatefold featuring many photos. Band credits on back cover. Lyrics and additional notes on sleeve. Orange ABC Records label.

Re-issued Vinyl Information:

MCA-37150, MCA Records. Gatefold eliminated and a plain white sleeve takes the place of the creative lyric sheet found on the first pressing. Credits and notes on back cover remain. This reissue contains an extra track not credited on the label. This is a short acoustic reprise of the song “Changes in
Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes.” This album can be distinguished because it does not have a gatefold cover. Also, original copies have the N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW symbols from the compass on the cover embossed in the cardboard, the reissue has them printed in ink. This short, extra track makes CILCIA the only MCA vinyl reissue sought out by collectors.
