Release Notes

This edition regroups Joe's Garage Act I and Joe's Garage Acts II & III. However the tracks distribution was reconsidered across the discs, so CD 1 tracks are not these from Act I...

1995 CDs are remastered and tracks 1.5 & 1.6 are retitled "Fembot In A Wet T-Shirt" & On The Bus. Track 9 is an additional track Scrutinizer Postlude, making a total of 19 tracks. (Previous CDs having only 18 tracks). The 1987 UK 2xCD issue (CDFZ1 / CDS 7-90087-2), has three incorrect titles; "A Token Of His Extreme", "Doing Work For Yuda" & "Keep It Greasy".

Notes

  1. Martin C. Strong, 2004, The Great Rock Discography, p. 1722.
  2. According to Zappa Forum members, some 2012 CDs may/may not have a glitch on Watermelon In Easter Hay "at the point when the solo ends and the clean guitar comes back in (5:53)".
  3. Email announcement by the ZFT on July 31st, 2012.
