Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
1 stars Mystery Disc is a compilation album by American experimental rock artist Frank Zappa. The songs are compiled from the two mystery discs from The Old Masters, Box One (1985) and The Old Masters, Box Two (1986). A few songs have been omitted from the original releases to make it fit on a single CD format. Most notably the Big Leg Emma/ Why Don'tcha Do Me Right? single from The Old Masters, Box One (1985) Mystery Disc #1 ( those two songs are included on the CD version of Absolutely Free (1967) so no loss there). and some of the Mothers of Invention concert from The Old Masters, Box Two (1986) Mystery Disc #2 ( the omitted part of the concert is included on Ahead of Their Time (1993) so again no loss there).

The Mystery Disc CD album concentrates on the early output of Frank Zappa and almost all 35 tracks are pre-Mothers of Invention recordings. Most are very short dialogue pieces or badly recorded blues or rīnīb songs and the most interesting parts of the album already appears on other recordings like Ahead of Their Time (1993) and Lost Episodes (1996). To be quite honest I find Mystery Disc to be a totally dispensable album and I wouldnīt even recommend it to the hardcore fans ( I am one myself). Sure thereīs the occasional hilarious dialogue or nice little section but as mentioned the best parts have already appeared elsewhere giving this album very little value. I canīt defend giving this album more than a 1 star rating.

2 stars This disk contains most of what was on the two "Mystery Disc" LPs from the two "Old Masters" collections from the mid-eighties, the boxed sets containing Frank's earliest albums. The majority of the best tracks of this album have been released on other discs, mainly "The Lost Episodes" and "Ahead Of Their Time", rendering this CD mostly for collectors or completists. Many of the tracks have been circulaing around for years on various bootleg releases, so in that respect, it's good to have legitimate releases of them.

The best of the tracks not on the other CDs are early recordings of Zappa in various combinations. We actually get to hear him play with Johnny Franklin (mentioned in the song Village Of The Sun on "Roxy & Elsewhere"). Even so, they don't raise the value much. But AI'm glad I own it.

1 stars "Frank Zappa's Random Old Stuff That Nobody Needs" could very well be the title of this collection of totally useless tracks. Most of the album is just the Mothers or Frank by himself dicking around like usual, well not exactly like usual since a large portion of this predates the first Mother ... (read more)
