One of my favorite records and finally the reissue does it justice. Thank god that with all of the drama and infighting within the Zappa family they can at least agree upon that their fathers music deserves a AAA mastering job with one of the best mastering engineers in the business. Every time I drop the needle on this or any of the other of the recent Zappa reissues I’m awestruck with not only his expertise in songwriting and arranging but that his studio prowess is unmatched by many of his peers. A true genius and this record it the perfect example of that.

Great pressing. Sounds amazingly clear. No flaws with the record. Highly recommend.

This pressing really is great. Frank's voice sounds phenomenal and the instruments sound excellent as well. All the little noises of the orchestra come to life on this release. No pressing flaws, the record came out of the package looking nice and polished, they did a good job with this one, no surface noise. For less than $20 you get a really good record.

This is a superb pressing. I have an original vinyl somewhere (likely lost is the shuffle of life) and an early CD release. This pressing has far more depth than my CD reissue. It is outstanding and is void of any recognizable surface noise. A great (re) purchase. In fact, I have four of the recent FZ vinyl releases and I could not be happier with them.
