Well this is an interesting collection.
I got this from the "sort of" recommendation of my dad. He used to have it, as his mate got it for him as of the cover.
Well, I do want to wonder about how this album is good and how it's bad. Certainly, there are parts I'm not fussed about. If you have Were Only In It For The Money, you won't be bothered by the 2nd half of the Dwarf song and most of Eric Dolphy. I really couldn't be bothered in listening to the whole of the title track either. But this is not for it being weird, just that it gets a bit boring. Being weird is not the bad thing, and if you don't like that, why are you even looking into this album, or even Zappa? If you must, I recommend the lovely slab of music that is My Guitar to the wonderful Orange County Lumber Truck. Anyways, many weird parts are intriguing and hilarious. Such as the whole of Didja Get Any Onya(anyya anyaaaaa), and the Prelude to the Afternoon of a Sexually Aroused Gas Mask. Many parts are genius, such as the musical structure of Toad Of The Short Forest, with the 1:00 mark perhaps being classed as Frank's answer to the rise of Metal. You can also get some smooth jams from Directly From My Heart to You, and Get a Little. As most of this is live, it is also very impressive. I think it's great, but a bit of a mumble-jumble.
