5 stars This is by far, Frank Zappa's best and funniest album. "The Adventures Of Greggery Peccary" takes up the entire first side, and there are three versions going around, the original LP version, which has a fade-out, the CD version, which is a stereo remix and comes to an end, but is missing some 10 seconds throughout the song. The last version was released on Lather, and is the LP version without the fade-out. It's instrumental sections are great, and would be hilarious even without the lyrics, but the lyrics support the song even more.

'Unrevised Music For Guitar + Low Budget Orchestra" is a great jazz song, along with "RDNZL". Both of them are instrumentals, and are bright and cheery, but actually change! If Zappa had worked harder on 'Hot Rats', it would've sounded like this. The remaining song "Lemme Take You To The Beach", is absolutely hilarious, and the instruments are bright and cheery.

5 stars. D.
