Notes

  • Issued with 3 different picture sleeves, the first and most common was inside out and featured pictures from the animated video. Some copies had the sleeve the correct way round. The third cover was a more conventional design with the 'fish is brain food' picture.
  • Etched on the run-off groove of A-side of the UK version is the message "Porky Prime cuts will happen".
