"Vinyl cat#s have 2 IDs; V for mono & V6 for stereo.
Vinyl US sleeves came with 3 cat#s; V-5005-2, V6-5005-2 & V6-5005-2X
Vinyl US sleeve inner spreads also came with 2 generic mono/stereo imprints; V/V6-500502 & V/V6-5005-2, which may contain either mono or stereo issues.
Early US labels, pressed by MGM Records Division (MGM/Verve plant, Bloomfield) have V6-5005-2 & the 3rd Story Music credit in 2 lines, with crediting as (Zappa).
Contracted-out pressings & later US labels have V6/5005-2 & the 3rd Story Music credit in 3 lines, with crediting as (F. Zappa) or (Frank Zappa).
For both mono & stereo, the slash '/ ' on label cat#s is common to later issues, which include the addition of the Sunset Boulevard address in the radial text following PolyGram acquisition in 1972."

Thank for looking up the information for me and the label looks like an early one but just wondering about the sleeve as US sleeves are usually very thick cardboard this is thin gateford like a UK cover. Did the US ever make thin sleeves ?
