Notes

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 artists' 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.

This Frank Zappa-oriented 'Zapped' release is the 6th issue in the series, a compilation geared to promoting both the artists 'signed' to Zappa and the two labels, Straight and Bizarre Records, which Zappa co-founded with Herb Cohen. (These two labels were manufactured and distributed for Reprise Records by Warner Bros. Records from mid 1969 [Previously 7Arts]).

The black & white cover of this PRO 368 release has a portrait of Zappa and the title is "Zapped" without an accent over the 'e' (as on a subsequent/similar PRO 368 release with a 'collage' cover & Reprise label). This record's label is pale blue with a dark blue 'Bizarre' text.

Issues did occasionally appear later in retail outlets, particularly in Australia.

    There seems to be problems with the issues in this master listing. Two seem to be duplicates, The one with the collage label that claims Reprise label and different track titles shows exactly the same labels as the two duplicate listings. The label with RE1 is shown at the top as the OG, but that doesn't make sense either.

      Track after track; brilliant explorations that were generally different than pretty much anything else that was being released at the time. An infusion from another planet.
