The CD cover has a painting of Zappa in a T-shirt on a black background; there were two different vinyl covers. From Biffy the Elephant Shrew:

The original Rare Meat cover (on the Del-fi Label, distributed by Rhino) featured a Dave McMacken painting of a horrific, slavering Zappa menacing a tiny, scantily clad woman in a glass dome, all rendered as a poster on a brick wall. The liner notes of the 200 Motels CD reveal that this image originated as a dry run for the cover of the 200 Motels LP. A distorted version of the same image of Zappa appears on the TV screen on the Over-Nite Sensation cover. When the original cover appeared, Zappa, who was already pissed off at Rhino (and involved in legal action against them) because of the ZAPPALOG [?] and the Grandmothers albums, took further legal action to make them change the cover of Rare Meat [and the cover was changed again for CD release - Ed.]. Because the image was already on Over-Nite Sensation, Zappa MAY have had legitimate grounds for a copyright infringement complaint.

On my copy of the Rare Meat CD, the tracks are in the expected order, but the titles are consistently switched - i.e., on the inlay card, on the cover insert and on the disc, "Dear Jeepers" is listed as "Letters [sic] from Jeepers," and "Letter from Jeepers" is listed as "Dear Jeepers". The vinyl version on Rhino has the correct titles.
