Zappa about The Thrillers

"I'm trying to acquire all the masters right now. It's going to take a little checking around to see who owns them. You see a lot of those companies went out of business and others are just very obscure. There's one called 'The Drunkard' by The Thrillers on Old Town, which is a recitation record where this guy tells of the evils of drink and the corruption of a young lad at the hands of a fast crowd and a bottle. Oh man! It's horrible!" - Frank Zappa Interview By Barry Miles, International Times, 29 August 1969.
