German pressing without label codes.
Some copies had a green hype sticker “Frank Zappa and the Mothers – Over-nite Sensation” on the front cover.
First catalog number on the back cover, spine, labels and the hype sticker; second in brackets on the back cover and spine.
Quite similar to later reissues Over-Nite Sensation and Over-Nite Sensation but price code Y on the back cover.
Bolic Studio is printed as “Boltic” on the gatefold inner.
Labels have typos; A1 is just “Camarillo”, and A2 is “I’m the Slim”.
“The Mothers” – on the labels
“The Mothers Of Invention” – on the spine
