Notes

Japanese release with obi, English booklet and 3 pink inserts containing English lyrics, Japanese liner notes and lyrics.

"This album moves beyond mere Rock & Roll into the dangerous realm of social anthropology. It offers to younger musicians the chance to participate vicariously in the touring world of the early 1970's (way back when it was still sort of fun to do). ..."

This is album #62.

Liner notes © 1992 Barking Pumpkin Records. Japanese liner notes dated September 1992.

All compositions controlled worldwide by Munchkin Music, except tracks 1-14, 2-13 & 2-16 by Frank Zappa Music; track 1-22 by Aries Music.

- The True Story Of 200 Motels (2-20 to 2-31).

The musical content of this album (tracks 1-12 to 1-26 & 2-11 to 2-19) features live recordings made:
- June 5-6, 1971 Fillmore East, NYC
- August 7, 1971 Pauley Pavilion, UCLA, California
- December 10, 1971 Rainbow Theatre, London, UK.

Liner notes about tracks 1-22 to 1-26: "Some of you might have heard another version of this material on the John & Yoko album "Some Time In New York". When they sat in with us that night, we were in the process of recording the Live At The Fillmore East, June 1971 album, and all of this insanity was captured on tape. After the show, John and I agreed we would each put out our own version of the performance, and I gave him a copy of the 16 track master tape. Here is our version… a substantially different mix from what they released."
