This was one of three covers designed by Gil Scott-Heron for New York Records, issued simultaneously on a single EP. The other two covers have since been released on expanded editions of I'm New Here.
Note the background of the cover art on the right: a black and white photo of an overhead shot of a street scene with people walking in the street. The orange and blue flowers behind Nyro are called "Mexican Fire-Cactus" and the dark background with orange lights is a sunset on the west coast, later used on another cover for I'm New Here.

The recording of this album was recorded in the same session as 'I'm New Here' but it was only released on a 10" EP and there were only three covers designed for it. So I won't be offering a track-by-track overview of the song-writing or recording process on this album. That being said, here are some thoughts that come to mind:
This album, even though it is arguably Nyro's most controversial, is still one of my favorites. It's one of those albums I find myself listening to over and over again and for several reasons. One is the fact that it was recorded in the same session as 'I'm New Here', but it never saw the light of day. Another reason is that it holds the key to Nyro's transformation as a songwriter. Not that I consider 'I'm New Here' an exclusively commercial breakthrough for Nyro. It's quite obvious she wrote her best songs on this album.
'All Aboard' and 'Flies' are the last two songs recorded during the sessions for 'I'm New Here'. Both of these are relatively unknown songs outside of Nyro's catalog but they are very important to her song-writing. 'All Aboard' is a rock/disco fusion about a young woman who gets on a bus with a man in New York City. She thought she was in love with him but instead she was on her way to a boarding school in California. The third verse begins:
"I'm sitting on the bus, feeling lonely in the darkness, there's no one home tonight, the driver's not even driving, he just leaves her high-heeled shoes on the floor. In this lonely darkness she has visions of him. The next stop is mine, the door closes and the sky turns purple, and the night turns and changes and I'm on a whole new bus ride."
