Official Release #17

This album was released in 1973.
Initial UK vinyl issues used the distinct UK red DiscReet logo sleeve, with Euro-pressed & labeled disc. UK labeled pressings then quickly followed, with some sleeves over-stickered with artist's name.

"MS" prefixed run-out pressings, of US origin, have a noticeable audio difference to "K" prefixed pressings (UK & Euro) which, in comparison, have the left/right channels swapped.

There is also a significant print difference on center spread of gatefolds. One version simply has 'sepia' & black print, the other has a solid brown/yellow color to the background areas. The two-headed character on the cover is Marty Perellis.

This record plus many, many more available on the Newbury Comics website at a much more affordable price than what the flippers are selling it for here

Edit:looks like they sold out pretty fast, only 500 pressed, looks like you gotta get it from the flippers now.

Ralph Humphrey on drums, to me, is the "true" hero of this fantastic album; usually acclaimed to be more "accessible" Zappa for somewhat more short-timed tracks or for the "catchy" lyrics of "Dinah-Moe Humm". Indeed, it's nothing less than a masterpiece of stunning compositions with complex rhythms, odd meters brilliantly performed (by the whole band) recorded and adapted to the sound of it. Apart from other Re-Releases of the early Zappa-CD-Era (esp. UMRK-Remixes), all existing recordings/masters of this album are also pretty good in their digital equivalent.

This pressing really is great. Frank's voice sounds phenomenal and the instruments sound excellent as well. All the little noises of the orchestra come to life on this release. No pressing flaws, the record came out of the package looking nice and polished, they did a good job with this one, no surface noise. For less than $20 you get a really good record.

This is NOT a German version but one of the Dutch versions! STEMRA is clearly printed on the label.

This is a superb pressing. I have an original vinyl somewhere (likely lost is the shuffle of life) and an early CD release. This pressing has far more depth than my CD reissue. It is outstanding and is void of any recognizable surface noise. A great (re) purchase. In fact, I have four of the recent FZ vinyl releases and I could not be happier with them.

In the Barry Miles biography, FZ claims the backup vocalists on "Montana" were the Ikettes, including Tina Turner herself! Any independent verification of this?

Great sounds on this lp and the pressing is exceptional! The lyrics and artwork are great as well, goes without saying that this and Apostrophe serve very well as a side by side listen.

Must have come out circa 1977 as my copy has an inner bag with advertisments for several albums that came out that year,Fleetwood Mac Rumours and Television Marquee Moon among them.
