5 stars Seminal stuff from the early MOI. The original release on vinyl doesn't have the tedious Film Excerpts and it is that which I rate 5 stars; the CD version is spoiled by their inclusion, but you can skip over them and enjoy the rest. The film excerpts should have been put onto "The Lost Episodes" or "Playground Psychotics" albums for those of us who need to hear every little nuance of Zappa's Project/Object, and not ruin what was a perfect album. The "King Kong" medley is superb and the original "Dog Breath", "Uncle Meat" and "Mr. Green Genes" are also faultless. This album brings out the best of the MOI and the amount of re-arranged versions that Zappa released of a lot of this material shows the quality of the compositions on this album.
