** The only recording sung entirely by Jerry Coffey was "Super Dooper Yooper Love Machine". However, "Ridin' da Cotton Pony" was a duet between him and Lynn, and he sings two lines on "Nite Crawler Boogie". Jerry also sang "30 Lb. Diaper" in concert several years before it appeared on an album, but after he left, "Diaper" became the first song to be sung by Reggie Lusardi (who also does the studio version on ''21st Century Yoopers in Space'').

** ''Yoopanese'' is all over this, as the band barely resembles itself. "My Shoes" and "Critics Tune" are completely serious songs with more generic themes (YourCheatingHeart and TakeThatCritics, respectively); "Robot Girl" and "I Don't Wanna Glow" have science fiction overtones that stand in contrast to the mostly realistic approach of their later work; and "Road to Gwinn" is one of only a very small number of parodies in their catalog.
