If you're a Zappa fan, there is no reason to not own this album. It's everything you could want from an instrumental, heavily jazz-oriented cover album of some of Zappa's greatest pieces from the 1960s (including one piece penned by JLP). A good number of members from the Mothers are also in attendance, and even Mr. Zappa himself plays guitar on Ponty's piece. I don't have any other albums from Ponty, so I've filed this in my Zappa collection. My labels are also completely blank. (Anyone else have that quirk about this particular version?)

This is also re-issued in 1976 on the Blue Note Reissue Series as the LP 'Canteloupe Island', Blue Note BN-LA632-H2, with the Pacific Jazz release ST-20168, 'Jean-Luc Ponty With George Duke Trio - The Jean-Luc Ponty Experience', and this bundled together as one double LP.
