5 stars For me, 1969 is not only the year of Woodstock and Apollo 11. 1969 is the year of Frank Zappa. It's the year he released two outstanding masterpieces: Hot Rats and Uncle Meat (with the Mothers). These are the two albums that I consider to be the best from Zappa. Hot Rats being more accessible will certainly sound more enjoyable at first but nobody should underestimate Uncle Meat. It's the achievement of all the work he did with the Mothers and the gracious help of Suzy Creamcheese. By listening to the wicked themes, songs and variations travelling from psychedelic, jazz and blues to doo-wop on Uncle Meat you'll really learn what is "Rock-In-Opposition". Yes, it's awesome musically but it's also a very funny album, more than what you should expect from Zappa. It's mandatory to buy this if you have to chance to. The 2 discs edition with extracts from the unfinished Uncle Meat movie should be the version to look out to.
