The Final Word:

Mastered by Bob Ludwig, Gateway Mastering, December 2012.

GZ - According to memory FZ first played the finished Trout Mask Replica master for Beefheart and the Band on Easter Sunday, 1969.

Note: The years in storage in Warners were not kind to Trout Mask Replica. The masters seriously suffer from oxide loss, primarily at the head of each of the four master reels. Fortunately, FZ had Dick Kunc make “safeties.” These actually sound better than the Originals and are in excellent condition but alas, incomplete. This edition of Trout Mask Replica is from the ZFT Vault protection copies, transferred at 96K 24B, except for Frownland and Hair Pie: Bake 2 which are from the original damaged master tapes transferred to direct stream digital at UMRK.
