In the autumn of 1979, a double record album was released, which was a

series. These were new recordings of essentially the same scripts.
Information on this album is as follows:
Hannibal Records (US)
611 Broadway, Suite 415

(The records were originally released in the UK by Original Records)
distributed in Canada by

In the autumn of 1980, a second album was made, consisting of a
rewritten and expanded version of radio episodes 5 and 6. This was
called _The Restaurant at the End of the Universe_. The pertinent info is
identical to the first album.
