First pressing with green front cover and disc with black ink background. Given free to all UWEB members (Uncle Willie's Eyeball Buddies). Hand-numbered and signed by Uncle Willie: "Welcome to UWEB - (name and number) - XXX Uncle Willie". Note that the number is the UWEB membership number, a customer code (which was the same previously when ordering from Ralph Records mail order), not the number in this edition for which the total number of copies is unspecified.

Notes from release:

- Track 1 (aka Fire): the first song ever recorded by The Residents for Ralph Records. It was recorded as part of the two-record set of 45's. The project was distributed free for Christmas,
- Track 2: The Residents recorded this version of Santa Dog in response to their discovery of their growth beyond the innocence of their early work. It heralded the end of "the classic period" (though technically, one more record, "The Commercial Album" was recorded after this song was released). The project was distributed free to all mail-order customers of Ralph Records,
- Track 3 (unfinished): in a first for The Residents, a track is here presented that was never completed. In original concept, The Residents has planned to record "Santa Dog" because it has been six years since the last recording and twelve since the first. Besides, it was 1984. As work progressed, The Residents realized that recording "Santa Dog" should be done only as relating to changes in The Residents's outlook. Part of this arrangement was pilfered for use in "Fur Elsie". This recording was never distributed,
- Track 4: this version now appears. It was recorded especially for U-WEB and appears only on this CD. This project is distributed free to all U-WEB members.

"All Santa Dogs written & performed by you-know-who"
