Trivia

  • For unknown reasons, "Don't Judge a Book by its Cover" was renamed "You Can't Judge a Book by its Cover".
  • The version of Rules and Regulations on this album is the same as the version from Thomas and the Best Kept Station Competition, but surprisingly the entire song is present despite Michael Angelis talking over the beginning in the story book. This indicates that they had this particular songs master tape and it was not simply cut from the audio book like the songs from Surprise Adventures used for the early season songs.
  • The Snow Song featured on the sampler version of this CD was reused from the audio book Surprise Adventures just like Night Train and Percy's Seaside Trip, as a result the beginning is missing since Michael Angelis is talking for the first thirteen seconds of the song.
  • Winter Wonderland and The Snow Song only appear in the CD sampler.
  • All Season 6 songs are low pitch but can be adjusted back to their original play speed by correcting the speed and pitch by +4.271%, this is the play speed difference between Film 24fps and PAL 25fps.

Goofs

  • At the beginning of Come for the Ride, Michael Angelis can be heard saying "What an adventure!". This is because it was reused from the 1998 audio book Surprise Adventures.
  • All three releases of the CD have very low quality songs from Season 6 which have audible hiss throughout along with uneven channels. The likely reason for this is they were taken from a poor quality master tape, Unfortunately there were no higher quality copies sourced for the 2008 re-release.
  • For unknown reasons the songs featured on all releases of this title show signs of compression, this is very uncharacteristic of normal CD quality and this mastering blunder is not present on the other release of the time, Thomas' Songs & Roundhouse Rhythms.
  • "Thomas Theme (reprise)" is a duplicate of the opening theme instead of the actual closing theme.
  • The CD sampler songs have the odd crackle and pop while playing as if they were playing from a vinyl record, this is not present on the two songs included on the full release.
