NOTES:
Japanese edition with anti-static inner sleeve and sticker using the intended cover artwork and the fax message text which was later included on the 1998 Mute / Matdor reissue sleeve.

The ‘lips’ design also appears on the rear sleeve of the bootleg 7″ single Love You Live.

The run-out groove engraving of this edition features the Caroline Records AND Supernatural Organization catalogue numbers.

The UK release has the original Caroline catalogue number lightly crossed-out and the MPROD catalogue number added to the disc. The Greek version features the “30047” Penguin catalogue number in addition to the (crossed-out) Caroline and MPROD engravings.

For the cover artwork Pussy Galore “wanted the Rolling Stones lips logo on the cover but Caroline Records got cold feet, permission was sought and, after a month or two, “Prince Rupert or someone or other sent a message – ‘Mr Jagger says no’, ‘So the cover’s now a carve-up inferno between the lips and Neubauten’s symbol so “we won’t get sued for it…But, if we did get sued, it would be great!” – Melody Maker: Insanity Claws (PRESS, UK)

In 1998 Mute / Matador reissued Right Now!, Sugarshit Sharp and Dial ‘M’ for Motherfucker on both vinyl (with Posters) and CD. Matador Records issued a promo only Pussy Galore Sampler featuring tracks from all three albums.

This release features a cover of Einstürzende Neubauten (Yü-Gung, released as a 12″ single).

Supernatural Organization released the Japanese issues of Dial ‘M’ For Motherfucker, Sugarshit Sharp, This Friday Night Only and a Pussy Galore split single with Black Snakes.
