It's a Wonderful Life

Columbia 4C 44097 12"/4CT 44097 CS, released 1987 (U.S.)
CBS 651276 6 12" (Netherlands)
Sony SRCS 5741 CD (Japan)

This was a fun EP. Christmas in the style of Fishbone. The title track is actually based on the events of the movie of the same name. The vinyl is easy to find. The only CD version of the EP came out in Japan. The tracks were also included with those from In Your Face in Europe to form the later Fishbone LP (which, of course, is a different self-titled record from their first EP. I know. They confuse us on purpose). The tracks also later appeared on the Fishbone 101 Anthology.
