Both the video and audio masters of this release are generally poor.

Swearing throughout this release has been redubbed to bring the rating down from R to a PG rating.

There are two different masters of sides 4 & 5 that vary greatly in placement of the side break. Care should be taken when collecting individual discs from this release from different sources to be sure there is not either a three minute overlap or a three minute missing segment of the film.

Discovision later released a CLV version with the same catalogue number; Sting, The (11-001) (CLV Reissue), in 1981.
