This Limited Edition (Bonus) set of 25 is issued in a 'generic' outer box, which was used to house various sets issued by concert promoter Freddy Bannister.

This Beefheart set has a black linen-effect base box, which houses the contents in two compartments. It has a red linen-effect lid, printed black & silver (with the generic title); "Freddy Bannister's Festivals 1969 - 1979". Inside the lid of this set is glued the 2-color 'Authentication Certificate'; "Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band Commemorative Set 1972 - 1975", which is hand-numbered (out of an edition of 200) & signed. This numbered & signed Certificate is repeated, glued inside the accompanying book: "Freddy Bannister - There Must Be A Better Way".

The first 175 of this set was issued with 'basic' content of 7 Beefheart CDs+DVD & a Zappa Knebworth CD bonus. The remaining 25 (inc this submission) were issued with further bonus works from archivist collections, including Zappa Knebworth, Bath material & CDs.

10 actual glossy photographs, unpublished to date, are included, measuring 200mm x 150mm. These feature Vliet, Harkleroad, Snouffer, Tripp, Zappa and the MOI (among others) onstage at various venues. The DVD provides an overview of The Magic Band at 4 venues. A Knebworth T-Shirt was also included in this bonus set. ('Images' provides full overview).

The following errors on releases:
CDr1-5 titled as "Dali's Claw"
CDr3-2, CDr4-16, CDr5-12 titled as "Spitball Scalped A Baby"
CDr9-6 full original title was "Poofters Froth, Wyoming Plans Ahead".
