Back in the late 60's/early 70's, the Warner/Reprise group (a record label) would often advertise compilation (sampler) albums for sale by mail on the inner sleeve of albums. These were not for sale in stores and could only be bought directly through the company. One of the great things about them (besides having the full-length songs on them) was the insanely low price...a mere $2 for a double-album release. This is a single album release from the same era.

Frank Zappa - guitar, octave bass, percussion Ian Underwood - piano, organus maximus, clarinet, saxophone Captain Beefheart - vocals Don "Sugar Cane" Harris ...

These samplers must be rarer. Greater value today?

Not really, this one runs between $5-20 on Discogs...admittedly several times more than they cost when they came out, but they were so cheap back then

I got this in a stack of albums someone gave me because they didn't have a turntable to play them. Kinda nice being known as the 'record guy' in a small town, it's happened 5-6 times in the past couple of years.
