4 stars "..Greggery Peccary" (like "Billy The Mountain" on "Just Another Band..") is an extended "folk tale" set to music, taking up the first half of the album; it is very funny but becomes tiresome after the 18th or 19th listening :-) "RDNZL" and "Revised Music for Guitar and Low-Budget Orchestra" are 2 of Frank's finest compositions, both are classics in my opinion and they appear re-arranged on later albums. The remaining track is a very funny mix of do-wop and the Beach Boys; very strange but really catchy - "Hotcha". Despite a large chunk of the CD being taken up by a silly "folk tale", this is still a great album and is worth buying for anyone interested in Zappa's music.
