  • The superlative repackaging and remastering undertaken by Ryko has put the original three-part, two-record set of this magnificent nonsense tale together for the first time. This is back to the madness of Freak Out, with more pop and doo-wop bursting through all the complicated stuff, letting you know that Zappa could write a hit single, if he could be bothered to do so. Joe's Garage is a hoot and harmlessly pornographic. The sleeve-note states that it is "a stupid story about how the government is trying to do away with music." It is absolutely no coincidence that throughout, the listener mistakes the "scrutinizer" as the "scrotumizer." Zappa was that rude, and that funny.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (1/17/02, p.52) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...An uncommonly succinct single-minded endeavor....genuinely witty and well-conceived..."

Q (8/95, pp.150-151) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...this enjoyably low-budget satirical opera about masturbation, appliance-fetishism and the outlawing of music is done largely in smooth soul-jazz style..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.139) - "For all the caustic intent and outrage, the finest moment is 'Watermelon In Easter Hay' -- one of Zappa's most celebrated guitar pieces."
