4 stars I find this too self-indulgent in comparison to "Shut Up 'n' Play Yer Guitar". Too much "showy" guitar strangling for my taste, but it has some unmissable pieces in there too. My favourite is "Were We Ever Really Safe In San Antonio?" which has such an increadibly beautifull moment of resolution in it - ya just wanna cry!! (sap that I am). The fast(ish) version of "Watermelon In Easter Hay" is sublime and "Winos Do Not March" is hilarious. It just has to many "average" FZ solos (tho' that's still great by most folks' standards).
