4 stars By this time, with only a few of the original Mothers Of Invention left in the band, Frank Zappa had molded the band into a pretty good jazz/classical combo. And the music he wrote for them is some of what puts Uncle Frank in the ranks of the 20th century masters.

The album opens and closes with light doo-wop style songs, similar to the pieces on Ruben & The Jets. WPLJ and Valerie were probably meant to get som airplay. But it's what's inside this sandwich that makes the album special.

The two Holiday In Berlin pieces are some of the finests classical works in Zappa's repertoire. He must have known that, as well, as theme from this popped up in works throughout the rest of his career. And the original, and best recording of Little House I Used To Live In is an amazing jazz fusion piece, despite the obvious splices from different performances.

In my opinion, this is a must have album in your Zappa collection.
