  1. A good introduction into Zappa’s controversial lyrics, funny compositions and awesome guitar playing, mostly of the 70s and early 80s period, as far as I remember. Deemed sexist by the politically correct listeners, “Jewish Princess” is real fun; the same can be said about “Bobby Brown Goes Down”. Although the level of the songs is not the same, all of them are clever and, at the same time, entertaining.

  2. This is one of my most favorite posthumous Zappa releases, if only for the staggering amount of rare mixes and edits featured in these more familiar tunes about shock and sex (basically). The “full length” version of “Dinah-Moe Humm” is something I have NEVER heard, and I personally think that the remixes of the stuff from “Zoot Allures” is MUCH better than that album’s original mixes. Even if you are a fair-weather Zappa fan, definitely pick this one UP!!!

  3. Hmmmm, Yet Another Compilation. It’s a good fun one though and playing this CD is guaranteed to brighten up a dull day.

  4. The mixes here are much clearer than the original versions, especially ‘Goblin Girl’ (from ‘Crush all Boxes’?). Love ‘Jewish Princess’ (know a few).

  5. This got confiscated from me shortly after buying it…but not before I’d made a backup copy on CD and cassette. I love this collection. Each of these Ryko comps function as introductions for different demographics to get into Frank. This one works for your kid brother who laughs at potty humor, Strictly Commercial works for the rocker, Cheap Thrills and its son work for those on a budget but with eclectic tastes, and Strictly Genteel can be used to charm your classical-loving grandfather. Just don’t tell him who wrote it.

    Those versions here seem to have Wackerman overdubs. And you have probably never heard the original ZA vinyl.
