I bought this when it came out and it was only when I bought a later pressing that I discovered that on the original pressing the B-side was faded early.
The original pressing has the messages "A HAPPY XMAS TO ALL MY READERS - PORKY" on Side A / "AND HAPPY NEW YEAR Ho Ho Ho" on Side B. Stamped: K-13511-A2 / K-13511-B1.
The later pressing with the "longer" B-side (i.e. the fade actually takes longer to reduce to very quiet - the duration is about the same) has stampers impressed with "STRAWBERRY" and no messages. There are also differences on the label layout.
