This recording was not intended for release. THEY HATE IT!!!
After having been completely unknown to the public for decades after its recording, it was released by The Residents on a number of compilations, beginning with dot.com in 2000 in a significantly shortened edit. The full six-minute take was then released on ERA B474 in 2012.
Another recording of "I Hear Ya Got Religion" has circulated among fans. This alternate take also features a snippet of another, otherwise unheard "Delta Nudes" original, the title of which is unconfirmed but which is similar to the song "Bo Diddley" from Rusty Coathangers for the Doctor.
I hear you got religion I hear you can knock it out I hear you got religion I heard it from God's eye
And God came up and told me Just what you do today And God came up and he told me You're right in every way
Sure can't miss on God's side With God you cannot go wrong In and out he needs you Your help, for God is lost
For your help he needs you You'll get that greener grass For your help he saves you Your dick is up God's ass
