For this first volume in the new 'Foot Stompers and Freaky Soul' series, Paris DJs found the following title: 'Killas, Thrillas & Chillas', referencing the third and final boxing match between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier. The frequent rhyming boast made by Ali was that the fight would be ' a killa and a thrilla and a chilla, when I get that gorilla in Manila'. With kids in boxing gloves featured on the previous compilation from the label, it also fitted the conceptual continuity Frank Zappa has always been fond of...
Fantastic illustrator Ben Hito designed a new psychedelic artwork. And then the finished art cover is sent and published as a source of inspiration to the label's network of artists, asking for tracks…
