Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars "Why Don't You Do Me Right / Big Leg Emma" is a single release by US experimental rock act Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention. The single was released through the Verve label in 1967. At the time of release the two tracks featured on the single were exclusively available here. They have since become available as bonus tracks on the Rykodisc re-release of "Absolutely Free (1967)". Itīs actually not entirely true that the tracks were exclusive to this single release because "Big Leg Emma" was also featured on the "Son of Suzy Creamcheese / Big Leg Emma" single from the same year.

Both tracks on this version of the single are in rīnīb style. "Big Leg Emma" features a more light mood than the pretty dark and rather heavy "Why Don't You Do Me Right". "Big Leg Emma" is enjoyable enough but to my ears itīs "Why Don't You Do Me Right" that takes the prize. Itīs a really great track that one, featuring some dark and menacing whispering vocals by Frank Zappa.

The single is hardly an essential purchase today as it is featured on the Rykodisc re-release of "Absolutely Free (1967)" but back then, this must have been a pretty great release. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.
