The albums in which the AEESO appears:

The probable list of musicians involved:

This list comes from Bill Lantz's Frank Zappa and The Abnuceals Emuukha Electric Orchestra page and Charles Ulrich's research (last updated: July 29, 2009). Instead of repeating the big list anytime the orchestra appears anywhere on the site, I've decided to put them all together here and provide a link to this page.
