Official Release #16

Tracks 1 & 2 are flipped around on the European pressing on Zappa Records from 1990 and the Rykodisc pressing from 1995. On all other CD pressings the track-listing is the same as for the vinyls.

Zappa coined the expression "The Grand Wazoo" back in 1969, recording a song of that title with Don Van Vliet on vocals, with lyrics pointedly aimed at members of Lodge societies. It can be found on Frank Zappa - The Lost Episodes, although it is quite dissimilar to the other 3 versions of "The Grand Wazoo" track.

I don't get the last image of the spine. It seems to be from an entirely different issue, maybe even a different record.

On my copy, the labels are the same on both sides. "side one" label on both sides. Must be a factory error.
However, this is another great album by Frank. Very high level of musicianship from the beginning to the end of this record. George Duke is fantastic on electric piano. Great compositions by Frank. These musicians stand with the best!

Within the rock gold Frank Zappa as a diverse talent. He was a brilliant guitarist, an unbeatable band leader and an incomparable social satirist. He began in the 1960s as the leader of the wacky avant-rock pioneers The Mothers. His subsequent solo work included everything from jazz rock to orchestral pieces, always with the humor that Zappa's trademark was. He succumbed to cancer in 1993 but the mind boggling fertile workaholic left a immense oeuvre. Genius is a word too often used in pop music, but it has decided deals with Zappa.
