C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention

I've been missing Uncle Frank lately, so here's one of my favorites of his.

I always thought this tune stood out among Frank's earlier material, especially within the context of the album. Weasels Ripped My Flesh is full of heaviness and dissonance, but this is a really pretty track in the middle of it all. Don't get me wrong, I like the ugly chords that Frank picks as much as anyone else, but this tune is definitely one of the more melodic pieces that he had out there around the end of The Mothers/beginning of his solo career.

Got any favorite Zappa tunes?
