[on CD]

The cover artwork of the booklet is taken from the original vinyl release which states "The Mothers of Invention" as artist.
On the CD itself and on the spine "Frank Zappa" is mentioned as artist.
This reissue CD has different timings, per CD face.
Timing on inlay and on back covers are the same, but not matching to the real tracks in some cases.
Timing written here are as per the disc face exept for the followings:
On disc face: track 13 "Help I'm A Rock" 8:40 (false) - Hereabove: track 13a "Help I'm A Rock" 4:43 (correct)
On disc face: track 14 "It Can't Happen Here" 3:56 (correct) - Hereabove: track 13b "It Can't Happen Here" 3:56 (correct)

The CD face of this release actually has the 15 tracks listed as 1 to 15.
However, tracks 13 (Help I'm A Rock) & 14 (It Can't Happen Here) are segued - this as listed on the 14 track inlay as track 13 (Help I'm A Rock).
The 2nd movement (14 on the CD face) was part of the movements within "Help I'm A Rock" on prior issues of "Freak Out!", but appeared previously to this CD as one piece on "Mothermania". This was the intention on this work. The corrected work & tracklist art implemented by Zappa is found on the later CD issue.
