4 stars Chunga's Revenge, the first album with a completely new band plus Ian Underwood.. Most notably, Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman from The Turtles, and the amazing soon-to-be legendary George Duke. Not to mention the incredible drumming of Aynsley Dunbar. However, this album acts as a transitional album. The production isn't like the Mothers' albums, and the songs are more raunchy and hard blues rock oriented, minus the jazzy stylings of Twenty Small Cigars. The Nancy & Mary Music is the real treat here, showing off the talent of the band with a pretty long jam. Zappa's guitar is nasty throughout the entire thing, Transylvania Boogie and Chunga's Revenge are great solos. Better output would become from this band however making this one of those albums that has a few treats, one that you'll listen to every once in a while for it's several good moments. 7.8/10
