Can anybody confirm for me that the Japanese papersleeve "Freak Out!" issue by Ryko / VisualArts (circa 2001) IS NOT a remaster?
I believe it is simply a reissue of the '93 master (which I believe was used for the Ryko '95 remastered CD issues?)
Even the text on the paper-sleeve issue (I found on a Web image) indicates the source was the 1993 master.

If it IS A REMASTER, then who remastered it and when?
This website has just categorically stated to me that the papersleeves ARE remasters - and users on there are advertising them for sale on there as such http://www.discogs.com/sell/list?releas ... 3806&ev=rb - which is a bit misleading IMHO.
Most all the FZ papersleeves are apparently 'Remasters' on there.
I'm confused...
IMHO a reissue of a Zappa work doesn't make it a remaster - just another mastering-to-disc of the master (unless it is a remaster of course) :)
Word from the horse's mouth please?

I have the 2001 papersleeve of Freak Out! I don't have the Ryko 95, but there's little or no reason to think that the 2001 Vack edition sounds different in any way.

Yes, I'm aware of what lukpac says - as well as other sites.
My question is "Has the 2001 Ryko 'Freak Out!' been remastered?"
Also, "Have ANY of the FZ paper-sleeves been Remastered?"
This site insists that many are http://www.discogs.com/label/FZ+Papersleeve+Edition
They will not believe evidence from other sites.
I need some from confirmation "Yes" or "No" from the source. Namely Zappa.com
Thanks
