Top critical review
i heard a different one before!
on 3 December 2014
I bought this double CD a few years ago, but have only just listened to it, after it re-emerged after a house move!
I'm a little disappointed actually, because this album is totally different to the version I heard some 30 years ago!
The one I remember was much funnier, and also wierder somehow. This version has more long meandering solos,
and the songs seem different. The one I remember had more vocal content and I seem to also remember something
about a talking blow-up doll that Joe is pluking. The general idea is the same - music is bad, but, once again, the album I remember is different and much better. And there's no song with people speaking German, if I recall correctly.
So, buy this album, as it's brilliant Zappa, but there's a better version out there!
If you can shed any light on what I'm on about, please do, as it looks as though there are loads of different versions
of this album, and I have no idea which one it is that I must have heard in the first place. Help!!
