4 stars What an insane and eclectic mix of music this record contains! If you can't find something to like out of these 19 songs, then you probably don't like Zappa anyways. I realize that making a "greatest hits" package of Frank Zappa's music is an impossible task, but this is a good mixture of songs from many different ages and styles and works pretty well as a whole. There is little to no filler here. Highlights for me are "Dunb all Over", "VIllage of the Sun", "Doreen", and the goofy "Fembot in a Wet T-shirt". Take a look at the players involved in these songs and you have a virtual Prog-masters list: Eddie Jobson, Jack Bruce, Adrian Belew, Jean-Luc Ponty, Terry Bozzio, etc..... This is a great package at a great price and is a good introduction for those curious about what this "Zappa-thing" is all about without buying his other 60 million albums! (Maybe not that many, but it sure seems like it!) 4 stars.
