I was looking at the inner cover of my Fragile record by Yes (Atlantic press, 1972 USA) and I noticed that in the lyrics, on the left, the song is titled “Long Distant Run around” while the track listing, on the right labels it “Long Distance runaround”. Anyone know as to why they did this? Was this how the lyrics were originally written? There are a lot of grammatical oddities, such as how The Fish is the only song not capitalized in the track listing, yet Schindleria Praematurus is. Any help would be appreciated

I think that the typesetter smoked too big a spliff. Nothing more sinister than that.

Gosh, I never really payed attention to that, so I just checked: I have a Dutch pressing; the inner cover has the same typo differences as you mention. Guess indeed that the typesetter (an intern, smoking ?) wasn't double checked.

It's not very consistent:
- on the right you have : Long Distance runaround
- on the left : Long Distant Run around
- first line of the lyric : long distance run around

Typical for typeset/correction/printing errors...

Sounds like a quality control issue. Maybe a record exec hired his ten-year-old son.

Typos happen often in lyric/liner sheets......IIRC on Marillion Seasons End lyric liner sheet one of the song titles is different, I think its King of Sunset Town, says something like King of Sunney Town, I'll have to pull my LP and check.

Depending who pressed the album, some plants do not offer print service so those come from an outside printing company.......As well smoking bowls of flowers does not help.

This is way more common in mass production than people realize, especially with compound words and possible compound/easily confused compound words.

On the same vinyl pressing, I can read Round-about for the first song (Second page of inner sleeve, where the lyrics are printed).
Left side: Roundabout
Right side: Round-about
Lyrics: round about
