A Full Frontal Entertainment written, composed & performed by The Firesign Theatre.

What you are about to hear is a recruiting show for the Reagan era. Three big acts on the Center Stage - America's Favorite Love Boat People - The Eight Shoes! Supply Side Balladeers - The 101st Fighting Clowns! and - Just Say No! to Fuddz! Hostages, hot tubs, freedom fighters and nuclear war! Only the interest on a trillion dollars!

This album got going in mid-January 1980 when TFT made a date to play The Roxy, a handsome Sunset Strip rock club, on the coming Leap Year weekend. This loomed as a unique opportunity for the group to strut their newest stuff to a new decade. It also loomed very soon.
