4 stars I've spoken to music fans who admitted to actually being SCARED of Uncle Frank! To those cowering folk I recommend this great sampler to ease into Zappa's wonderful world of musical colors. He presented to the world what we needed most. A sense of humor and satire in a universe that insists on taking itself much too seriously. This isn't perfect, however, and I could do without hearing the grating Valley Girl ever again but it's here because it did chart due to its timely novelty. But with the rest of the cd you get a good dose of Mr. Z in his brilliance. San Ber'dino, Dirty Love, Cosmik Debris, Montana, Be in my Video and Muffin Man are all smile creators in the midst of incredible musicianship. And Peaches En Regalia should be the national anthem. So, if you do not own any of his albums but have always wanted to peek through the keyhole and catch a glimpse of what's inside the mad scientist's workshop, this is just the ticket for you.
