Official Release #14

The original covers of this album feature the text;
"Any visual similarity between the cover of this album and the 'Uncle Meat' illustrated booklet (not to mention Ruben & The Jets) is thoroughly intentional and contains 4 secret clues".
In addition, the actual full title of the album;
"LAS MOTHERS - Just Another Band From LA - RIFA"
This adds a Pachuco cruisin' style to the appearance, whilst "Rifa" references Zappa's roots in Glendale and the Tooner Ville Rifa.

In December 1971 Zappa was pushed from the stage of the Rainbow Theatre, London. He broke a leg and suffered permanent vocal damage, his voice dropping by a third in pitch. Zappa was confined to a wheelchair through most of 1972 and this is the first of 3 albums produced in that period.

This album contains a new arrangement of "Call Any Vegetable" from Absolutely Free (1967).
