Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars "Don't Eat The Yellow Snow" is a single release by US experimental rock artist Frank Zappa. The single was released in August 1974 through the Discreet Records label. Some versions feature "Cosmik Debris" as the B-Side track and some versions feature "Camarillo Brillo". While "Don't Eat The Yellow Snow" is featured on "Apostrophe (')(1974)", both B-side tracks are featured on "Overnight Sensation (1973)".

The single was one of Frank Zappaīs first commercially successful releases and it was one of the tracks from the early part of his discography that helped bring his music to a wider audience and as a consequnece also helped to fund some of his more obscure releases. In that respect a single release like this is is worth itīs weight in gold, but for fans who already own the two albums where the tracks are taken from, this is not the most interesting release, however great the material are. And it certainly is high quality material played by very skilled musicians, featuring a high entertainment value. Itīs funny, itīs clever and itīs bold. A 3 star (60%) rating is deserved.

2 stars 'Don't Eat The Yellow Snow' - Frank Zappa (Single)

For me, 'Apostrophe' has been the Zappa album I've found the most enjoyment in. As a running song cycle, it really works and the flow of it is quirky and fun. The one that came before it, 'Overnite Sensation,' I consider to be it's companion album, but I don't find near the same amount of consistency and enjoyment to it.

It feels like a bit of a weird pairing putting the first songs of each of these albums together, but what comes together are two pretty decent samples of the man's music at this time. What really makes this not work however, is that 'Don't Eat The Yellow Snow' is supposed to be part one of a two part duology that kicks of 'Apostrophe,' concluding with the funny 'Nanook Rubs It.' Without the second part of the puzzle, I really don't find the song that interesting anymore, as it was basically an introduction to the body of the composition. Now, it just ends up being a little snippet. Then it's on to 'Caramillo Brillo' which I have always found to be a pleasant poppy song but nothing more.

Nothing much to report here.
