Release Notes

Liner Notes

Background Information

The girl-hitting incident heard in Jumbo Go Away represented yet another case of Frank reporting on real events and letting listeners come to their own conclusions (rather than force-feeding them any “message songs”); Zappa guitarist Denny Walley had slapped a woman.

Conceptual Continuity

Dweezil’s line “Leave my nose alone, please” from the end of Drafted Again was originally heard at the end of Flower Punk on the Money album.
