From the insert:
“Special Edition Vinyl LP
Out of print on vinyl for nearly ten years, this remaster was helmed by industry legend Bob Ludwig and cut by the estimable Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering. Utilizing crystalline-quality safety masters kept in the Zappa family vault for decades by the trustworthy Joe Travers, the audio here is positively glorious. Every last skronk breathes full life into the room. Every twisted guitar figure uncurls onto paths previously unpaved. Every last bark and howl shines resolute through the vast emptiness of your mind.

Previous countless Trout Mask Replica repressings have used scans of scans of scans of the cover image, but for Vault Package #36 the original Cal Schenke cover photo has been tracked down and reproduced at its clearest – its resolution from the original release in 1969. If you’ve only ever seen a jpg online of fuzzy, smeared-looking CD issues from the 90’s, be prepared to be wowed by the fully engaging spectrum this iconic image casts. This 2xLP is pressed on heavyweight 180-gram fruitcake fish-scale colored vinyl for that full-on frenetic feeling.”


Sealed and complete. Tote bag, patch, and contents insert are present. Other contents are within sealed LP packaging.
