Recording & Release
The EP was recorded in Bill Manspeaker's bedroom and at a local band rehearsal hall and put out as a DIY Release on a 7" Vinyl disc via the bands own label American Jello Parti Productions, Inc. The title and the cover artwork is a parody of The Beatles' Let It Be album cover. The back cover of the picture sleeve features an actual endorsement from Kiss member Paul Stanley. The record also included a multi-panel lyric sheet. Let It Be was limited to 500 copies only. The first 100 copies were housed in a hand-glued color cardboard picture sleeve printed on photographic paper. The other 400 picture sleeves were simply a green tinted photocopy of the original cardboard sleeve. The record is currently extremely hard to find and highly sought after by collectors.
Many of the songs on the EP were reworked and re-recorded on later Green Jelly albums. Green Jellö Theme Song, Whip Me Teenage Babe (later retitled House Me Teenage Rave) and I've Got Poo-Poo On My Shoe (later retitled Misadventures Of Shitman) were used for Cereal Killer Soundtrack. The 1-second long Icrog, as well as Whip Me Teenage Babe ended up on Triple Live Möther Gööse at Budokan. Do the Howie is about the bumbling rent-a-cop at the band's High School Alma Mater, Kenmore West High School, sung to the tune of Van McCoy's The Hustle.

Famous quotes containing the words release and/or recording:
“Come, thou long-expected Jesus,
born to set thy people free;
from our fears and sins release us,
let us find our rest in thee.”
—Charles Wesley (17071788)
“I didnt have to think up so much as a comma or a semicolon; it was all given, straight from the celestial recording room. Weary, I would beg for a break, an intermission, time enough, lets say, to go to the toilet or take a breath of fresh air on the balcony. Nothing doing!”
—Henry Miller (18911980)
