Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 Martin C. Strong, 2004, The Great Rock Discography, p. 1722.
  2. "My ears detect the following on the CD: added reverb, noise reduction affecting the frequency spectrum, both of which have effect on the stereo image – the LP sounds wider. It is said that the Old Masters LP has the same problems. "Torture" suffers the most from these processings. All the little subtle details get sadly lost in muddines [sic]." — Thinman, the Zappa Forum, March 15th, 2008.
