Thought I had pretty much everything the wonderful musician that he is had produced, but stumbled on this from 1973. It is long and a bit 'prog rock' but it contains one of his best guitar solos in my estimation. Hair on the back of the neck stuff - for me anyway. Patience required but worth every minute.

Rollo was a longish piece that never had a proper studio recording. It got partly absorbed into St Alphonzo's Breakfast

It is not too expensive and a couple of the choral songs are sung well. Two classical pieces are new. Lacks Volman and Kaylan and thus, humor.

Not planning to replace all my Zappa CDs, but got the 2012 versions of Hot Rats and Chunga's Revenge. These resemble the old LPs I had better than the 1987 CD releases, used up till 2012. Those were on Ryko. If you noted oddities, might be a fix. The label of the 2012 says Zappa records.

I thought I had heard all of Zappa's output, but not this.

Perhaps for fans only - and guitar geeks?

Guilty on both counts.
