Packaging Edit

The previous compilation, The Word Is Live contained an exhaustive set of liner notes and made use of plastic hubs which intersected each other, often resulting in discs which were damaged immediately upon being removed from the package. However, Essentially Yes, by contrast, was packaged with no liner notes in a black cardboard box featuring simple cover art by Roger Dean. Each disc was given an individual mini-LP (non-gatefold) sleeve despite the fact that none of these albums was released on record and each is an hour or longer and would require a double LP and, as such, a gatefold sleeve.
