For all those people who have an aversion to Zappa's humor and have always put him off, definitely give this album a listen (especially if you like Mahavishnu Orchestra). You'll be missing out if you don't. It easily has some of his best instrumental guitar-playing. It's basically a CD of glorified jams but the jams themselves are incredible. And any album with Shuggie Otis playing bass (on "Peaches in Regalia") has got to be good. "Willie the Pimp" is still one of the best guitar warmup songs ever...

I'm a little pimp with my hair gassed back
Pair a khacki pants with my shoes shined black
Got a little lady...walk the street
Tellin' all the boys that she can't be beat
Twenny dollah bill (I can set you straight)
Meet me onna corner boy'n don't be late
Man in a suite with bow-tie neck
Wanna buy a grunt with a third party check
Standin' onna porch of the Lido Hotel
Floozies in the lobby love the way I sell:HOT MEAT
HOT RATS HOT ZITS HOT WRISTS
HOT RITZ HOT ROOTS HOT SOOTS
