A double-CD set, recorded live in New York City at the end of 1976. Heavy on, well, "freewheeling" lyrical content, with "Titties & Beer" and "The Illinois Enema Bandit" (the latter featuring "sophisticated narration" by Don Pardo) being special favorites with young males of a certain age. Also here is the song that gets most peoples' vote for the best title ever to grace a Zappa instrumental, "I Promise Not to Come In Your Mouth."
When Zappa first released this album in '78, Warner Brothers was especially nervous about a little tune called "Punky's Whips." The tune concerned drummer Terry Bozzio's lurid sexual fantasies about one Punky Meadows, guitarist for the band Angel. Since Angel was then regarded as an important player in the music industry (yeah, right), Warners sat on the album for a long while and then deleted the track altogether. With this CD reissue "Punky's Whips" is back in all its glory, along with four other songs not on the original vinyl.
