I'm a little bit puzzled about the additional "Hot Rats" in relation to this release. "Hot Rats" was a Zappa-release in 1969. Why does "Hot Rats" appear here? The songlist of this master release shows no variation. Could it be that the two water taps named "HOT" and "RATS" on the cover picture have been misinterpreted as part of the album title? Is there anybody who knows details about this?

can't get this off my turntable. Did not fall in love with this in the 70s for some reason. Fast forward to now and the quality of big swift is leaping out at me, it is really hitting something I did not get before. Thats the thing with Zappa you rediscover something new despite what you think
