Some of them had plain white labels, but I don't know, how much there are.

Why do the German slide music parts miss out number 3 and go from 2 to 4?

After hearing John Peel play The Residents' version of Satisfaction on his late night show around 1978, I ran to the railway station the very next day and got a train into the nearest town to buy Third Reich n' Roll. My mother had instructed me 'not to buy any more records' but as she was going out for a couple of hours I saw the window of opportunity opening wide.

By the time she got back.... so had I. I was probably watching Pebble Mill At One with an innocent look on my face.
In those days my mother used to get so upset about my vinyl habit that she would freak out quite badly. I didn't understand the problem... I was working, had no debts, no other bad habits and wasn't stealing to support my 'addiction'.

I would come into the house on a Saturday after a morning's record shopping, having just dumped my bags in the garage... and then walk into the house empty-handed. "No records today son?" she would ask, "nothing for me today" I replied, retrieving the records later.

Anyway, where was I? Oh, this album .... well, when I got it back home I was puzzled. I wanted more of that extreme distorted screaming/'singing' that was Satisfaction's main attribute. I mean, they totally destroyed that song. That was much more 'punk' than any of the current bands at the time.

It has taken me a while (about 40 years actually) to get to grips with this strange and unsettling album. Like someone said - it's very familiar whilst simultaneously sounding like nothing you've ever heard before. It was fun puzzling out what songs were covered... and every time I listened to the thing it seemed to sound different somehow. I don't know how they achieved that. It's remarkable really. I really think it's alive and evolving in some way.

A peerless album, it floats freely in vertical space-time, unfettered by commercial restraints. Along with King Tubby and The Homosexuals, The Residents were masters of utilising the studio desk as a musical instrument.

What differentiates the 1981 censored pressing and the 1985 version?

I heard the first two and I'm so mixed with the sound. I'm like is it the tapes the machines the mastering engineer or engineers. Why is it so compressed if that's what the problem. Is it a loudness war ordeal. This will probably be the last time they ever get released. Unless a box set will be in the works someday like most. Seems like a box set always pops up for what ever reason. But yeah it's bright but after a while you adjust the EQ and it's ok. I mean it's The Residents. What's up with the cover for this. Was that the original original.

So, the front cover says "THIS side explains why Hitler Was A Vegetarian" and the back says "THIS side is usually Swastikas On Parade". So the cover makes it seem like "Hitler Was.." is actually side A but "Swastikas on Parade" is the track that starts with the German "Twist Again" which is generally regarded as the beginning of the album. SO.... have we all been playing side two first by mistake and all CDs, etc were pressed wrong? I'm going by the first pressing artwork and labels here.

Bonus tracks are mostly interesting but, my god, the sound on this is truly horrific. Awful example of the loudness wars nonsense. Tragic.
