Release Notes

Bootleg compilation by Zipperman from the Lumpy Gravy Capitol Acetate Test Pressing, in addition with some supposed live material and radio spots.
Despite the Muntz logo (which is a confusing reference to the 8-Track and 4-Track tapes), there is no doubt the 2 first tracks were full length sides taken out from a record due to the audible crackles.
The two last tracks (20&21) titles are not described in the sleeve/cover notes.
Zipper man Presente LaMarre Bruister Simphoneya is printed on the disc instead of the title.
