If FZ was a multifarious talent influenced by multifarious musical sources, then this is the multifarious musical result. This cd (originally a soundtrack for a yet-to-be-completed film of the same name) has everything the specialist fan needs and the beginner ought to have in order to get to know the underlying mystery of The Man With The Funny Moustache. Beautiful tunes, crazy tunes, no tunes at all (but still beautiful)feature on this release. Tapes of the band, tapes of 'phone calls (The Voice of Suzy Creamcheese) orchestral manoeuvres in the light of experience (not in the dark)are interspersed with doo-wop songs about being busted, neat guitar solos, atonal arrangements, pachuco love songs and several versions of King Kong (his great jazz theme, also avilable on 'Lost Episodes')- one apparently played by an ice cream truck. Typically of FZ, like all Serious Artists, many regular themes are revisited or anticipated on this collection. Mr. Green Genes, from his very popular 'Hot Rats',is here, with words! Sing along! Eat your shoes (even eat the box you bought'em in!). Listen, smile, laugh, ponder. Enjoy. Buy. I first heard this music when I was in my teens shortly after it was originally released. I still lisen to it today. The only reason I'm buying the cd is I wore out the original two lp release with repeated playing. See how long your cd lasts. And tell your friends.
