Zipperman is a bootleg label which often use other nicknames such as Zipperdeke, Zapperman, Zappaman, Zipperdelic, Zapperdelic and B.Zarre.
Their CDs & covers artwork are high quality factory pressings. The audio source (supposedly taken from demo acetate records) and the sound quality still has to be verified (if possible) and compared against similar existing bootlegs.
Comments posted in January 2006 on the official Frank Zappa Forum mention that the Thing-Fish Demos and Crush All Boxes are affected by too much Noise reduction and contain shortened songs. More information on this subject would be appreciated.
