Baby Snakes is the soundtrack to Frank Zappa's film of the same name. It features several of the songs from the film and was originally released as a picture disc. The track "Baby Snakes" is the studio recording which appears on Sheik Yerbouti, but omits the opening riff (instead starting at the first verse). All others are live recordings, unique to this album and the film. Like the Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar set, this LP was originally offered for sale only as a mail order item through Columbia Records's Record Club division in Terre Haute, IN. The LP was later offered to distributors for conventional brick-and-mortar store sales.
In 2012, Baby Snakes: The Compleat Soundtrack was released to iTunes.
