Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Frank Zappa (guitar); Don "Sugarcane" Harris (electric violin); Ian Underwood (alto saxophone); Bunk Gardner (tenor saxophone); Motorhead Sherwood (baritone saxophone); Buzz Gardner (trumpet, flugelhorn); Don Preston (piano, organ); Art Tripp, Jimmy Carl Black (drums).
  • Photographer: John Williams .
  • After getting over the colorful, disconcerting Neon Parks album cover illustration on WEASELS RIPPED MY FLESH, the listener is faced with following the whiplash-inducing, genre-jumping gymnastics inside. A mix of live tracks with studio cuts made with the original Mothers of Invention, WEASELS RIPPED MY FLESH is one of Frank Zappa's most eclectic, varied, and experimental early releases.
  • From the perplexing Germanic interlude of the opener, "Didja Get Any Onya?" to the complex xylophone changes of "The Eric Dolphy Memorial Barbecue," Zappa combines avant garde music, jazz, R&B, novelty elements, and plenty of flippant rock attitude. Interestingly, there are some straight-up rock tracks too, such as the interpretation of Little Richard's "Directly From My Heart To You," and the guitar-led attack of "My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mama," balancing highbrow conceptualism with unpretentious directness in Zappa's inimitable fashion.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (10/1/70, p.42) - "...This random collection...finds the group peerless in the field of amalgamating satire, musical adventuresomeness, and flash..."

Entertainment Weekly (12/17/93, p.36) - "...the original Mothers' last gasp, WEASELS contains some of Zappa's looniest work in a free jazz vein..."

Q (8/95, pp.150-151) - 5 Stars - Indispensable - "...as diverse and dynamic as any Mothers' album. Not a dull moment..."

Goldmine - Highly Recommended
