This collection was inspired by my dear friend Amaretto Mick Zeuner, who is the mastermind behind The Zappa Tour Atlas (advance copies of which will be available at Zappanale in July 2019). The tome is very much a labour of love ("by fans, for fans"), which this CD happily heralds.

Mick's cartographer chum Klaus Kühner provided all of the necessary graphics for the book, while ‘my Cal Schenkel’, Antero Valério, has supplied the artwork for the CD.

For those who care, the Idiot Bastard and all the artists involved do not make one penny from these albums. But Cordelia Records think that, after manufacturing costs and mechanical royalties, they might be able to break even. Within twenty or so years.
