The artwork lists 8 tracks, but there are 9 tracks on the record. The title of track B4 is taken from the album Myra Lee, where an alternate recording of the same song is listed as "Great Expectations". Please note that Dear Sir and Myra Lee are from the same recording session(s). The song also appears as "Great Expectations" on the Guv'ner In Catpowerland / Catpower Goes To Guvnerville split single. Nevertheless, it remains unconfirmed whether the song has this same title on Dear Sir. An alternate possibility is that track B4 is called "No Matter", and the short instrumental track B3 is actually untitled.
