Why is this so hard to find? Am I looking the wrong places? It makes no sense to me...

My guess is some legal problem came up. Hoping they can resolve it soon.

Are you sure that this is the Zappa records issue? The product number suggests something else...?

I found a few used copies of the ZR issue from amazon market place sellers...but I figure you want a fresh copy, belew-vibe?

Yes. Same Zappa Records issue. It is their site! I bought a couple copies as gifts last year and tho' the site has a
new product code the actual CD is identical to the 2013, including product code. (tho' I didn't unseal the new ones...
identical on the outside).

I appreciate the responses! I think I might end up using brainpang's link. The ones on the U.S. Amazon link might that StrokeTheBoots sent might be Reprise 1989 versions. I would be surprised if there were that many ZFT versions for sale. I was trying to think up something to trade to Pittylabelle, but I couldn't come up with anything. very hard to impress you guys - you have seen it all... The way I see it , the best version is either a clean early press of the LP's, made when the reels were fresh, or the ZFT 2013 CD, which I am told has an edge on the Reprise 1989 version. I still don't understand why such an essential title isn't right next to every new ZFT copy of Hot Rats in every independent record store...

My copy of Trout Mask Replica is a Reprise LP purchased in 1985 (it may have been hanging around the store for a few years before that) that sounds fine, no evidence of the tape damage heard on some CD versions.

I still have a substandard rip of my old Reprise 1989 CD. I can't imagine where the CD is now. It was from the "music club" - one of the very first CD's I ever bought. I also got SUAPYG at that time. The very first CD I ever bought was Dark Side MFSL for $17 - I still have it! Thanks for all of the input!

I have a 1975 Reprise LP, which is recognizable from the cover - the feather ball is cut off, presumably to get rid of the Straight logo. Definitely some tape issues there - for instance in Dachau Blues.

Something to do with Jan Van Vliet's disinterest maybe? Who the heck knows. But if ya want TMR on ceedee there it is for 14 bucks.
Not bad at all. The Z(f)T didn't even do a proper 50th Anniversary release. Just a Third Man repress of sorts.

Captain Beefheart’s Trout Mask Replica hits streaming platforms for the first time: Stream
The 1969 masterpiece has been hard to find for years
https://consequenceofsound.net/2020/01/stream-captain-beefheart-trout-mask-replica-spotify/

and now the ceedee is no longer available on the ZT's storefront
https://store.captainbeefheart.com/

and Bat Chain unavailable since at least September 2019.

Hope something's brewing at the ZT regarding these matters as this is clearly unacceptable!

Wow...that CD was for sale on the site just last Sunday. I even checked my browser history. The page I looked at is gone!

Also the Spotify link doesn’t work for me in the USA. Nor is the album on Spotify’s list of albums by CB

Also note that weird album cover...where’s that from? Says added Jan 1 2020. Maybe uploaded without authorization. Who knows?

I suppose your second copy is already sold?
