4 stars This is one of the first Frank Zappa albums I have heard, it played a large part in helping me to discover his genious, it kicks off with what is really the only song that is meant to be comical in a bouncy, energetic way, "Wind Up Working In A Gas Station" it's followed by "Black Napkins" which could go on for an hour and still hold my interest. It was recorded live and seems to be somewhat improvised, and it is of high quality. Other favorites of mine are "Where the torture never stops" whic is the longest song on the album and features great lyrics and singing from Zappa and an incredible, mellow atmosphere, and the other really mellow track "Find Her Finer". I find the mellower tracks on this album to be the most appealing but there are basically no flaws to be found on this album. Great mid 70's release.
