Poster Art: Frank Zappa and the Mothers

Frank Zappa and the Mothers
The original uploader Farbror Sid is not sure what Zappa album this poster, by Dave McMacken, came with. Anybody? I've been looking around on the web for a while and I can't find this poster or any references to it. Maybe it's very rare in real life too. I seems it's a Mothers (of Invention?) jubilee and I'm counting six candles. Frankie himself says "established in 1964" and in 1969 he disbanded the original Mothers of Invention and formed the Mothers...

YAY!!! I've been looking for this poster online for some time. I bought this poster at an antique shop for 20 bucks. The guy was asking 50 and I'd seen the poster for about a year and eventually saw him in person while he was organizing his booth and talked him down. I think that this must be rare......I absolutely love it though. I hope we can both find out something. I found this blog while trying to find out about it myself, though this is the 100th time I've googled it and the first time I've seen a picture of it on the web. GREAT FIND MAN!!!! By the way, do you like the song charva as much as I do?

I'd be surprised if that wasn't a good buy 'cause it does seem to be a rare one. So congrats. Here's what they say about the poster on a zappa forum: Poster to be identified

About Charva: probably not ;)

Thanks for commenting!

Seven candles if you count the one that is in between Ruths breasts. Also I have all of Franks Albums released in the states and this poster was not included in any of them.
