Description Front cover; image and text. The front cover, printed in dark orange and black, shows a young Maria Dallas, aged in her early 20's, smiling at the camera. She is framed from head to elbow and her hands are pulling at the edges of her collar. The lettering down the left hand side of the record is in san serif upper case with the name 'Maria Dallas' reversed out in white. The remaining text is in black. The Viking records corporate logo is to the bottom left of the front cover. [DM]
Description Back cover; text only. The back cover is text only and uses the same san serif lettering as is shown on the front. The words "Maria Dallas" are printed in the dark orange colour and aligned left. 'Comes to town' is typographically the same as the front cover and this and the song titles and body text are aligned left from the edge of the artists name. [DM]
