This is a hodge-podge of tracks from a few of the bootlegs that form The History & Collected Improvisations of Frank Zappa & the Mothers of Invention. It could have been issued around Frank Zappa's 40th birthday (21-Dec-1980) - a gift he wouldn't have liked.

* Tracks 1-2 are taken from Ultra-Modern Stringbean (29-Jun-1973, Festival Hall, Melbourne).
* Track 3 and the entire third record are taken from Ein Monster in Der Musikhalle (11-Sep-1974, Wighalle, Vienna).
* Tracks 4-5 and 17 are taken from If You Get a Headache (23-Oct-1975, Music Hall, Boston).
* Tracks 6-8 are taken from Frank Zappa vs. the Tooth Fairy (19-Jul-1974, Circle Star Theater, San Carlos).
* The second record except track 17 is taken from Back on the Straight and Narrow (24-Jan-1976, Apollo Stadium, Adelaide).

Made in Europe and packaged in a "black jacket with one postcard outside and two inside". The vinyl is black, the labels are coloured, with pictures of Zappa's face on each side: the first record has green labels, the second ocher yellow, and the third brown. The black sleeve, which you have to unfold to get to the records, is sealed with a little yellow sticker with the title on it.
