The original LP issue listed "Everything's Easy When You Know How" as part of the song list (on the back cover) but this number was not on the LP and seems not to have been recorded. The song list was part of a fictional review of the show. The entire back cover of the jacket did not have traditional liner notes. Instead, the conceit was that the back cover was a page from The Daily Planet, including the columns "Max Mencken's Metropolis"; "Women's News," by Lois Lane; and "Shipping News," by Clark Kent; in addition, there was an unsigned article titled "Superman Saves City," an unsigned article with the headine "Mao Tse-Tun Peace Prize Won by Dr. Abner Sedgwick," and, in addition to the unsigned review of the show, an unsigned book review of "It's a Bird It's a Plane It's Superman!" with the authors of the book listed as David Newman and Robert Benton.
The CD release added four demo tracks performed by composer Charles Strouse and lyricist Lee Adams:
The lyric for "You've Got Possibilities" has many differences from the final version heard in the show. The music for "A Woman Alone" was reused for "Auf Wiedersehen" in Strouse's later show Dance a Little Closer.
