Pussy Galore - Sugarshit Sharp (LP, US)  - Cover
VIEW:
NOTES:
US pressing on Caroline with die-cut white paper inner-sleeve.

This particular copy was used as a promotional item and has “LOANED FOR PROMOTION ONLY” foil-stamped over the barcode and was issued with a two page press release charting the history of the band.

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)

The original intended artwork was included as a sticker with the Japanese release on Supernatural Organization and appears on the rear sleeve of the bootleg 7″ single Love You Live.

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).
