On the sleeve notes to this release Zappa provides the contact address for the artistic young lady who is constructing a quilt from used underwear. The track "Panty Rap" relates to this, with Chicago audiences in strong contention for the highest response. A 'conceptual continuity' can be found on "YCDTOSA Vol 6" with "The Madison Panty-Sniffing Festival".
