Very first original Polydor POCP release of 12 Who mini-LP CD with Target on the reverse side of the obi came with pages of the so-called A-Z songbook. The mini-LPs that included these began with A Quick One and ended with It's Hard (including Odds and Sods and The Kids are Alright). The subsequent edition of the 12 CDs omitted the Target and coupon and most of the writing from the back of the Obi. There were no songbook pages in these.

The rear of the obi contains details of a promotional offer and a coupon. Customers who bought all twelve titles could send in the coupons to receive a special binder for The Who Song Index A-Z and a t-shirt. Customers who bought five or more titles could send in for a T-shirt. The promotion ran from September 29, 1999 to December 31, 1999.

Tracks 11 to 13 are bonus tracks.
