As well as featuring a pared down track list, the original UK vinyl enjoyed two subtly different releases.
Initial pressings were issued on the pink "famous Charisma label" erroneously listing the release year as with subsequent pressings replacing this with the "Mad Hatter" label design correcting the year to Both editions featured a trick continuous runout groove at the end of Side 1 where the sound of a record scratch is followed by Michael Palin's exclamation of "Sorry squire! I scratched the record" repeated ad infinitum, at least until the listener chooses to lift the stylus off the vinyl.
The album marked the group's first chart success, reaching No. The original UK vinyl pressing also contained an unintentionally out-of-sync mix on the song "I'm So Worried", which was subsequently corrected. The original cassette version had an additional track due to Side 1 being several minutes shorter than side 2. At the end of Side 1 about after "I'm So Worried" , Michael Palin states that there will be a "tiresome gap" before the tape ends.
Several minutes about of silence ensue, followed at the very end by Eric Idle stating that the gap was over and the tape may be turned to Side 2. Two tracks on the album were later released in expanded versions.

Denver somehow objected to Python using 'Annie's Song', changing the lyrics to 'You came on my pillow' and then comedically strangling him after announcing at the beginning of the bit, 'And now the sound of John Denver being strangled'.
Who knew? In the censored versions of the album, the 'John Denver' track is omitted entirely and its 18 seconds are replaced by an announcement by Terry Jones. He says, "The item which follows has been omitted on legal advice.
It's just the plain, inner sleeve with the familiar Mad Hatter logo of Charisma Records showing through the hole in the middle.
Even the tracks listed are a comment on the possible legal consequences of the Pythons not making the record. For something none of them really wanted to do, we all put a great deal of effort into it. Thankfully, over the years lots of these discarded tracks have been released. Moreover, most of the bonus material featured on the first three Charisma Records in this collection also come from the 'Contractual Obligation' sessions.
