More of a collection piece than an actual great structrue of music. It's worth snagging if you're a collector of Bizarre/Straight records, but if not you can leave this by the wayside.

I find it interesting that if the original is claimed to have sold so few, why did they issue it again on reprise? Makes me not believe that it (or TMR for that matter) sold as poorly as they did.

Which is the best pressing of this album to get, the original US or the US repress?
Or even the UK pressing? I usually stick with American pressings of LPs/CDs since I am American but is there anything better about the UK pressing over the two US ones?

The ones I have for this LP are standard Bizarre Inserts advertising for the Zapped lp sampler on one side for 1$ each. There is an order form that makes up that side of the insert. On the flip side is two paragraphs "Congress shall make no law....".Both sides are very blackish and show the image of Frank and someone else. I will just add that this was one of the few bizarre issue if any others to not have Canadian distribution. Only US copies available in Canada.

The review written previously is excellent, so I won't add anything unnecessary, although I would recommend Fisher's Rhino-era LP's to those seeking an introduction to Fisher, as they are more straightforward musically (the second two were produced by Barnes & Barnes), and easily accessible on CD.

Speaking of this, it's a shame that this double-album set is not available on CD (largely due to the incident with Zappa mentioned below), as I'm sure FZ kept the masters, and there may be even more unreleased material.
