Other Notes

The shirts worn by Marty, Richard and Peter on the cover of this album have all been sold to fans and collectors. A picture of Richard's and Peter's shirts is available.

The LP edition of Heyday has a message carved into the inner groove. Side A says "I thought it was tobacco they were smokin'" while Side B says "Young English knob twiddler gets the Bondi Boys"
