By this time, EMI's tape inlays were granted full use of the cover area so that the entire height of the tape box carried a look that was consistent with the style on the vinyl sleeve.

However, in the case of this particular title, they had got just a little carried away.  What they had done was copy the running order directly from the vinyl sleeve, only to have it noticed later that the cassette would have a different running order as would befit EMI's usual practice at the time.


So, this separate loose-leaf insert was included tucked inside the inlay, giving the correct running order for tape, along with a revised list of music publishers.


One wonders whether later prints of the main inlay had this corrected information shown - possibly not, as such a niche title would likely have commanded only a single print and duplication run.

Although the inner sides of the inlay continued to house only plain text, the printers began to be a little more generous with the amount of information they provided.

At around the same time as the introduction of full-height inlays, paper labels were dispensed with in favour of direct ink printed onto the plastic of the cassette shell itself.


From 1977 until around 1982 the details were printed in blue ink.


This title gives slightly confused company ownership details; the inlay describes the 'WAVERLEY' label as a regd. trade mark of EMI Records Ltd. but the cassette as a regd. trade mark of The Gramophone Co. Ltd., a company of the EMI Group (the ownership arrangement that was retired in late 1973).
