Tracklisting & More Information

This was initially released in its full uncensored glory in late 1977, with the track "Punky's Whips" included on the sleeve credits, the label & the vinyl.
This issue was withdrawn by Warner Brothers, who considered its homoerotic reference to Angel guitarist Punky Meadows in "Punky's Whips" & "Titties And Beer" to be potentially litigious.
In March 1978 the album was officially re-released in censored form, with "Punky's Whips" deleted from the vinyl although the remainder of the original sleeves were used, so for a time you could still read the lyrics inside, even though you could not hear the track any more !

This is that rare original issue from late 1977 that is completely uncensored and still has the track "Punky's Whips" as Frank intended. Unlike the later CD release, it is also not saturated with digital reverb either, so kicks like a mule.


The sleeve remains in wonderful condition with just a little light edge scuffing and the lightest amount of shelfwear and ringwear visible.
The vinyl is at least Excellent with minimal signs of play.

A spectacular copy of this incredibly rare Zappa release.
