4 stars I was feverishly sifting through final bins of a record store that was closing store and could find no Zappa, thus I asked the owner Hey Jeff! Have ye' got any Zappa? He replied No, I had some but I think its sold out and then it happened. Another customer reached into his stack and pulled out Bongo Fury and handed it to me and said, You can buy this one, I already have it. I was very pleased and thanked him profusely, thus I bought it along with numerous other titles.

I put it on the record playing without even knowing it was a live record of a sort, however I was very pleased with the results. This is ultimately a very bluesy effort for being a Zappa and Beef heart record and I usually tend to move away from blues as it usually does not have much variation but this record sounds fresh for some reason and works very well.

I find it very very enjoyable and catchy at times, and Zappas guitar playing really is top notch as always.
