Ptooff!! was released in 1967 and 8,000 copies were sold on their own Impresario label via mail order through the UK underground press, such as Oz and International Times, before being picked up and released by Decca Records. The album is self-described on the inside cover as the deviants underground l.p.
The album was re-released in the mid-1980s by record label Psycho. The cover came in a six-panel fold-out with extensive notes, including a review by John Peel: "There is little that is not good, much that is excellent and the occasional flash of brilliance". There are two quotations in the cartoon drawing that fills three panels; one of them, "When the mode of the music changes, the walls of the city shake!!", is adapted from a quote in Plato's Republic.Ptooff! was also re-issued on CD in 1992 by Drop Out Records.
