From early in 1969 to 1977 Reprise Records (and their parent label Warner Bros. Records) ran a USA & Canada only mail-order promotion on a number of the inner sleeves of their mainstream artist's releases. This was to promote a wide range of less popular artists on compilation albums known as the 'Loss Leader' PRO series, sold at a significantly reduced mail-order price.
The black & white cover of this PRO 368 release is a collage of Zappa & Straight artists and the title is "Zappéd" with an accent over the 'e' (unlike a previous similar PRO 368 release
with a Zappa photo cover & 'Bizarre' label). This record's label is Reprise Records. Track titles are also different to the earlier release, which did not have the Straight singles.
Issues did occasionally appear later in retail outlets, particularly later in Australia.
