Notes

We're Only In It For The Money:
This whole monstrosity was conceived & executed as a result of some unpleasant premonitions,
August through October 1967. All premonitions continuing to come true.
All the music heard on this album was composed, arranged & scientifically mutilated by Frank Zappa
(with the exception of a little bit of surf music). None of the sounds are generated electronically...
they are all the product of electronically altering the sounds of NORMAL instruments."
