Ne esiste anche una versione più sobria e parziale - tre normalissimi cd - ma quella da vedere-per-credere è la confezione in scatola con maschera e costume in tema, libretto digitale e chiavetta USB con la serie integrale dei sei concerti dati al Palladium a New York dal 28 al 31 ottobre 1977, quarant'anni fa giusti giusti, gli stessi da cui a suo tempo scaturì il famigerato film Baby Snakes: Frank Zappa, Halloween 77.

“This box set was a very special experience for me to work on,” says Ahmet Zappa. “I wanted to make sure we honored these legendary shows, so it was important to me that this box set felt of the era. It was a blast working with our partners to create the late ‘70s-inspired Frank Zappa Mask and costume and the candy-shaped USB stick filled with tons of Zappa goodness. It was yet again a labor of love gathering up all the archival materials, reading notes by people who were there, and most importantly making sure the audio was up to par. All of us at Zappa Records are mighty pleased with it, and hope that fans of Frank Zappa and of Halloween will be too.”
