Ralph Humphrey on drums, to me, is the "true" hero of this fantastic album; usually acclaimed to be more "accessible" Zappa for somewhat more short-timed tracks or for the "catchy" lyrics of "Dinah-Moe Humm". Indeed, it's nothing less than a masterpiece of stunning compositions with complex rhythms, odd meters brilliantly performed (by the whole band) recorded and adapted to the sound of it. Apart from other Re-Releases of the early Zappa-CD-Era (esp. UMRK-Remixes), all existing recordings/masters of this album are also pretty good in their digital equivalent.

In the Barry Miles biography, FZ claims the backup vocalists on "Montana" were the Ikettes, including Tina Turner herself! Any independent verification of this?

Great sounds on this lp and the pressing is exceptional! The lyrics and artwork are great as well, goes without saying that this and Apostrophe serve very well as a side by side listen.
