This European (likely German) no-name pressing cleverly targets both Zappa and Dylan collectors. 10 copies each were pressed on blue, clear, green, yellow and red vinyl - altogether 50 copies. The black & white cover has Zappa taking the back seat on a motor bike driven by Dylan, who is wearing sunglasses and smoking a cigarette. This album is not a Zappa/Dylan collaboration; Zappa's side of the album was recorded at Voorst National Hall, Brussels, on February 21, 1979. The Dylan songs are various demos, Outtakes, and test pressings from 1961-1963.
