Back cover art:
Star Map
"The Frank I Remember": "I began working as Frank's recording engineer on January 3, 1975, when Kerry McNab (arguably the best engineer Frank ever had) began his slow withdrawal from the scene and subsequently from engineering entirely. Because of a contractual obligation to Kerry, Marty Perellis (Frank's then-manager) insisted on listing me as 'recordist' on the One Size Fits All LP, though I did much of the actual engineering. I went on to engineer all or part of six or so albums with Frank."
Michael Braunstein, Letters To Mix, 2003.

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 1.5 1.6 The back cover drawing by Cal Schenkel represents a fake barcode 6234 9909 with a wrong check digit. This one can also be seen on the back of the CD inserts.
  2. 2.0 2.1 Martin C. Strong, 2004, The Great Rock Discography, p. 1721.
  3. 3.0 3.1 3.2 According to the Zappa Patio, the only way to distinguish the 1995 (= 2001) and 1998 Ryko RCD 10521 is to listen to the discs.
  4. Email announcement by the ZFT on July 31st, 2012.
