Anyone know why the cover photo is missing/black on this...?

That's not only on the Universal reissue, also later pressings of BPR and ZAPPA Rec. CDs have the black cover. Reason is reportedly FZ was using the picture w/out permission.

FZ received the photos in the mail and used them, then the photographer wanted to be paid.

I prefer this one by far. They should hire Cal Shenkel for future covers imho.

Me too.

Is it possible that Ryko commissioned it from Schenkel and the ZFT don't have the rights? Or is Gail just mad at Calvin for some reason?

The very first issue i saw, & bought, (Zappa Records) had this picture:



so i got a surprise when i saw the Ryko/Schenkel cover...the only copyright issue i thought they had with this release was the use of Bolero. I like the Schenkel cover but i have a preference for the original just because that's the way i first saw it.

I was surprised FZ couldn't have gotten a better picture, but it was nice to see the band on the cover for the first time since...the "Drafted" single?

My experience of this album was identical to that of hoops.
It's a shame the photograph was taken by someone who appears to have been a bit greedy, I'm sure there would have been plenty of other people who took similar pics who would have loved them to be used!

FOB. Smile

Shame indeed...it's also a surprise to me that the ZFT can turn up an alternative cover for Lather and do other reissue cover modifications but not find a suitable photo to replace a black rectangle...
sometimes Mrs Zappa just has to make her point i guess Wink

We apparently don't know the details about all this, but in general it's no matter of being "greedy" if a photographer wants to be asked for permission and expects payment if a photo he took is to be used on a commercial CD-release.
