Christmas With the DevilChristmas with the Devil b/w Christmas with the Devil (scratch mix)
Enigma Records, 1984, picture sleeve (#E-1143) and limited edition (#E-1144)
Notes: This is a different recording than the song released on Break Like the Wind and includes a message from the band as the song fades: "This is Spinal Tap, wishing you and yours the most joyous of holiday seasons. God bless us everyone." The scratch mix begins with the sound of a needle scratching across record grooves and does not include the holiday message. Scott Sookman of Vinyl Hell magazine writes: "This was the only release of this song, which the band performed in May 1984 on Saturday Night Live, until a version appeared on Break Like the Wind in 1992. Since it was released as a promotional item to radio stations, it contains the same song on both sides. It was issued in a black-and-white sleeve with the Spinal Tap logo and devil artwork. This version of Christmas With the Devil also appears on the compact disc Rarities Volume 8 (Christmas) issued by the Westwood One Radio Company in 1991."
