I used to have this compilation years ago. It was from the UK, and it was just called FRANK ZAPPA AND THE MOTHERS OF INVENTION. I bought it to have recordings of WHY DON'TCHA DO ME RIGHT and BIG LEG EMMA. It had tracks from all the Verve albums - even a Lumpy Gravy excerpt that had the OH NO theme and some of the spoken parts. The cover had a greenish tint, a picture of a Kodak slide with a picture of FZ on it. The FZ & the MOI title was printed along the top like it was painted with a spray paint can. I seem to recall LET'S MAKE THE WATER TURN BLACK was missing the 'apron and her pad' verse, and ABSOLUTELY FREE opened with "I don't do publicity for you anymore" - the word "balling" cut out.<br><br>Anyone else ever had this? For the younger folks, I'm referring to a vinyl release I bought in the early '70's

That's the one! Now that I no longer have this album, does anyone know what its' value is? I want to cringe like I do when I think of the Nolan Ryan rookie cards I used to have as a kid.
