Zappa Plays Zappa, Dweezil Zappa’s ongoing homage and performance of his father’s music, is hitting the road again in 2008, after hugely successful tours in 2006 and 2007.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Terence Jones VINE VOICE on 15 Aug. 2004
Format: Audio CD
One look at Dweezil's friends who have helped him on this album and you know it will be good. Nuno Bettencourt (of Extreme) plays some of his best guitar work on this album and Donny Osmond (yes THE Donny Osmond) does a superb version of the Bee Gees Stayin Alive.
This album have many different style of songs on it from the insane Shoogagoogagunga and The rerurn of the son of Shoogagoogagunga to the sublime - Helpless.
Best song in my opinion is Vanity, an ode to former (U.S. version) Wheel of Fortune hostess Vanna White sung by 2 white female rappers (think Salt n' Pepa) called "the lame white chicks". The video incidently is absolutely superb for this song.
It is an interesting album and definately won't be to everyone's taste and it may not appeal to traditional Frank Zappa fans but you can see influences of his old man's music in the album.
Dweezil incidently plays guitar on the album.

His best work--same vein as Paul Gilbert 17 Jun. 2005
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Dweezil is a monster on the guitar, and this album is his best work yet. He deserves to be ranked right up there with guys like Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and Zakk Wylde, but somehow Dweezil's guitar playing has gone more or less overlooked. (So has his music career, for the most part.)

Nuno Bettencourt (formerly of Extreme) produced this disc and even lends his vocals to one song "The Kiss," as well as some spoken parts here & there. The Zappa humor is there in most of the lyrics, but it's the guitar playing that makes me listen to this one again & again.

Dweezil's vocals are an acquired taste, but if you're into 80's guitar rock, this is a good buy.

80's Guitar Shredding with humor and talent 13 April 2006
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
People need to remember - this was cut in 1991. The 80s influence is all over it (in a good way). If you love the 80s style guitar work - this is must have. Nuno is totally under-rated and does an awesome job helping out here. Zakk Wylde in his early, early days. Some cutting lyrics. It is a 4 1/2 star CD... not perfect but very enjoyable. Dweezil is (was?) a very talented player - not sure what happened to him.
Not too many albums more fun than this 4 Dec. 2009
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I'm not going to try to tell you Dweezil is up there with the greatist guitarists of all time, but he does play a great guitar on this album. He has a unique sound/tone to his playing and he rarely uses 4/4 time which makes his sound even more distinct. The beauty of his music, though, is his use of humor throughout his music. I can't think of many more albums I enjoy listening to more than this one. I particualry enjoy "Confessions of a Deprived Youth" but those are my '80s roots talking. the guest guitarists are phenomenol and really add to the music. It's just a really fun album to listen to.
Underrated 14 Jan. 2007
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I think this is the best Dweezil album of his early music, it's more experimental, developed, and more guitar, less vocal, has some great cover songs like ''anytime at all'' and ''staying alive''

and some guitar opuses such as ''shoogagoogagunga'' ''return of the son of shoogagoogagunga'' and ''earth'' special guests include donny osmond, moon zappa, ahmet zappa, josh freese and others.
Nuno and Dweezil SHRED! 8 Oct. 2013
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Quite possibly one of best hidden gems of its decade. Nuno and Dweezil absolutely SHRED on this album. Being a Nuno Bettencourt fan and NOT owning this album is, simply stated, a crime against your music collection.
