Note: This was a collection of outtakes and other junk laying around the cutting room floor from the 1965 sessions.
The Fugs were none too happy about this album.
First they signed a contract with Atlantic Records, but Ahmet Ertugen was aghast at the resulting recording and sent them on their way.
So, they signed with Frank Sinatra's Reprise Records. Cool dude, Frankie.
