Read FZ's own "Real Frank Zappa Book" and Miles' "Frank Zappa" for two distinct takes on the LSO albums. FZ hated Britain in general,and he is scathing in his criticism of LSO players'unprofessionalism. Miles says FZ was totally unaware of how orchestras work, so he had unrealistic visions of what they can do.
I think they're good, but if you may get a bit nostalgic for the rock versions of these sacttered round FZ's official and unofficial releases. By far the best CD of FZ's orchestral music is "The Yellow Shark"ánd you can see the entire show of that on Youtuve
