Notes

This stereo release, on red "Buddah" labels, followed shortly after the mono release.

The vinyl is contained in a 2-sided black & white half-tone photo-montage liner, of band members, session artists, engineers & producer.
One side reads "May The Baby Jesus Open Your Mind And Shut Your Mouth", the back reads "Caution: Electricity May Be Hazardous To Health".
(Not all of the personnel shown on the liner are credited).
A 380mm x 100mm 'bumper sticker' (with "Safe As Milk" text and a cutout baby's head color image) was folded into cover. This sticker was produced in a limited quantity, as were the montage liners.

(This release also exists, as another version, in a mono sleeve with a 'stereo' over-sticker obscuring the 'Mono' print. This was issued prior to the printing of a stereo sleeve. Later, there was a further version - with the stereo cover shown, but without a montage-image liner on expiration of printed stock.).

Reports suggest Richard Perry played the Harpsichord on "Call On Me".
Richard Perry's little brother, Fred Perry, is pictured on the inner sleeve. Fred Perry is wearing the goggles and aviator cap poking out of the baby Jesus' left ear (on the right side of the sleeve as viewed in your hand).

Label variant - differs from [Invalid Release] in the following ways:
-Artist name on 2 lines instead of 1
-Side One & Side Two on left side, instead Side 1 & Side 2
-Matrix # above Stereo (no cat #), instead of Stereo above cat # & matrix # on right side
-Track titles centered, instead of left justified
