This must be a great album. Why? Because if I were to sit and write out a list of my 100 favorite Zappa songs, every track on this album would get on the list. Every guitar solo on this album is marvellous. I especially like the spot in the FIFTY-FIFTY solo where it sounds like Frank's about to lose it, and suddenly he regains his chops! The ZOMBY WOOF solo has never sounded better than it does here - not that the others are bad. Every song on this great album is a true Zappa classic. It's hard to find anything I don't like about this album. What to y'all think?

I love Frank's guitar tone on this album. Those solos on 'Montana', '50/50' and 'Zomby Woof' sound nasty and stinky... just the way I like it. Incredible playing as well...

I really love this albumn. I especially love the back to back to back solos in 50/50 I just go crazy evertime i hear them!<br>Ralph Humphrey is such a great drummer. He might not have all the techniques of some of the other players but he more than makes up for it with his unique style and wonderful feel<br>

'':-[''<br><br>~<br>but mom, all the other kids are doin' it!!

I seem to recall reading somewhere (?) that Ricky Lancelotti is deceased. Anyone verify? I'm hoping I'm wrong...

if I'm correct, in the booklet that comes with 'the lost episodes' Frank states that Ricky Lancelotti died in a streetfight or something.... I don't have it at hand right now, but I'm pretty sure it was something like that.
