This lp was released in 1968, the cover art obviously satirical of the Beatles. Afraid of getting sued, the record company execs wouldn’t put the artwork on the front cover.
I used to think Zappa was a bit too crass at times, especially in the lp Joe’s Garage (I won’t repeat the lyrics here!). But today I can see that he foresaw a lot of issues that only decades later others would talk about. Basically he hated censorship. Is that such a bad thing?
Many thanks to the good folks at Toronto Public Library for acquiring all kinds of interesting stuff.
