The EP of cover songs is released by Elektra Records. The inclusion of the price in the title ($5.98 for vinyl/cassette, $9.98 for CD) was to prevent retailers from overcharging for a five song collection of music. Some promotional stickers clearly proclaimed "$5.98 E.P. DO NOT PAY MORE!" The EP peaks at #28 on the Billboard Top 200.
