Nearly identical to : Zappa - Them Or Us, but this release has: different cat on labels of side A & B (with a minus "-" instead of "Y" - and: different pressing rings around center hole (two instead of one). Cover is a bit glossy. On spine: 164 Y 24 0234 3.

Released in October 1984, Them or Us is Frank Zappa's last studio rock album (unless one counts Thing-Fish). It contains a little of everything for everyone, but most of all it has that cold and dry early-'80s feel that made this and other albums like The Man From Utopia and Frank Zappa Meets the Mothers of Prevention sound dated pretty quickly. The record begins and ends with covers. The Closer You Are" is one of those '50s R&B tunes the man loved so much.

Them Or Us. October 18th 1984. Them Or Us 2LP (Barking Pumpkin Pressing).
