Frank Zappa - You Are What You Is Outtakes (1980)

Halloween saw the surfacing of of the Orchestral Favorites outtakes, so I thought Christmas would be a good time for the next little outtakes surprise. A small portion of this has been seeded here before in inferior sound, but most of it should be new to the majority of FZ collectors.
Some of the tracks differ a lot in content from the released versions, while some of them may only differ in mix and mastering. You Are What You Is is a rather "radically" mastered album in terms of EQ, effects and even speed, and these versions may come across as more natural sounding in comparison, just like Crush All Boxes does to some.

Lineage: Maxell XLII cassette (2nd gen)->Denon DRM-800A->Creative SB Live->SoundForge (level adjustments, speed correction, editing, tracking)->FLAC Frontend

Thanks to Flambay for additional speed advice.
Thanks to pbuzby and drdork for additional analysis of the differences to the album.
