This release is not the same as Frank Zappa - Zappa In New York. This release has a printed text on the top left hand corner of the front cover, "CONTAINS CONTIENT 2 RECORDS DISQUES"

" In 1976 we played for a cozy group of 27.500 deranged fanatics in New York City (13.500 for three shows at the Felt Forum at Halloween, and 14.000 for four shows at the Palladium the week between Christmas and New Years). All of these sold out concerts were promoted by Ron Delsener (who we hereby thank), and attended by some of the nicest people we have had the experience of playing for (who we also hereby thank).
New York last Christmas is what made this album possible."
