3 stars Wow! For such a cheap price, this is a great way to pick up some good live versions of classic Zappa tunes. On the flip side, this doesn't really show you all of the different styles Zappa has to offer. This collection stays a little safe in terms of song complexity, by putting in live versions of "Joe's Garage", "Bobby Brown Goes Down" and "My Guitar Wants To Kill Your Mama". However, I did enjoy the comedic relief from the opening 0:30 track that talks about how joining the Mothers will ruin your life, and "The Mudshark Interview", which is comprised of hilarious dialogue.

Not a very good way to experience the more complex sides of Zappa, but it's great for anybody who wants to hear some good live tunes at an awesome bargain!
