Sleeping Beauty is a 1976 comedy album recorded by Cheech & Chong. Since 1976, this album was only available on vinyl LP, then, in 1992 it was briefly reissued on CD and cassette and has since become out of print. On November 15, 2005, the long out-of-print album was finally re-released and digitally re-mastered on CD, along with Let's Make a New Dope Deal.

Cover

The album cover and name make reference to the once popular drug Secobarbital, a barbiturate derivitave commonly known on the street as "reds". Used for epilepsy and insomnia, the drug was widely abused in the 60's and 70's. The original LP album cover folded out into a giant red capsule, bearing the same numbers as Secobarbital capsules from the 1970's. The sleeve containing the actual record was a picture of a woman's tongue with a "red" in the center (the same picture was used for the re-release CD cover). Many references to "reds" have been made on Cheech & Chong's albums and in their films.
