The album was recorded May 1997 at the Hotel2Tango on a 16-track recorder. This initial run was limited to 500 numbered copies. The band name, album title, and image frame are debossed on the front cover. The handmade jacket is a deep purple cardstock. One of three glossy darkroom prints is glued onto the cover, whereas reissues use offset prints. The back cover includes a hand-drawn cross, catalog number, copy number (e.g. 297/500), and a stamped Constellation Records logo all in silver ink. A manila envelope with an acetone transfer on it is included. The envelope contains a Canadian penny flattened by a train, blueprint ("Faulty Schematics of Ruined Machine"), credit sheet, concert bill, and a card with purchasing information. Additionally, a silkscreen print of a locomotive with "For the Reverend Gary Davis" on the side is included. The vinyl label itself lacks any indication of what is on it, with the track titles and catalog number instead etched into the runout. The clear outer jacket sleeve has a sticker on it which reads "godspeed you black emperor! f#a#∞" in blue ink.
