4 stars The final set in Frank Zappa's massive live compilation starts off with a warning. The M.O.I. Anti- Smut Loyalty Oath can serve as a warning that this CD set focuses mostly on Frank's more sexual material. That doesn't make it bad. You just have to know what you are in for.

There are quite a few narrative included. There is the famous Poodle Lecture, the explanation of songs like Ms. Pinky, I Have Been In You (which loses points for not leading in to the song), and more. There is also a disgusting discussion about the womens' underwear thrown onto the stage (the band used to hang them on clotheslines across the stage).

But the real highlight, as usual, is the music. My favorites on this one include: a very fast version of Magic Fingers A great Patrick O'Hearn bass solo on Lobster Girl, and Zappa's homage to Olivia Wilde's hot character on the TV show "House" (A show created many years after his death. How could he know?), Thirteen. Okay, the song is really a vehicle for a fantastic L. Shankar violin solo - the title refers to it's time signatures.

So throw out your prurient attitude, sit back and enjoy.
