That was from Life magazine in 1970. It was a photo-essay of rock stars at home with their parents. It also included Grace Slick, Elton John, Richie Havens, Joe Cocker, and I think Eric Clapton.

The artwork for this album was hanging on the wall of the living room in Frank Zappa's house. However, his wife Gail Zappa claims that it was later stolen from them. The original painting was done by Ed Beardsley

I have the book Cosmik Debris - The Collected History and Improvisations of Frank Zappa by Greg Russo and on the back cover there's another picture from that same session. The only difference is Zappa is holding a cat and he looks less annoyed. I can't even find the unrevised edition of the book online right now to show a picture. All I found was a revised edition with a different cover. Is that original book rare or something?
