"For those of you familiar with Frank Zappa and his music, this isn't a bad buy. Its a must have for Zappaphiles. And for those who don't know squat about Zappa's music, this isn't the best place to start. The band is lead by Ike Willis, followed by familiar faces from past Zappa bands encompassing the 70s and 80s with no members from the Mothers of Invention participating. The performance is mearly adequate and at sometimes sloppy, but I'm from the school of any Zappa is good Zappa."
Not so much fun withoyt Frank

"While its always great to hear Zappa's music played by great musicians (and these are great players) the whole affair seems lifeless and a bit dull. The band is not rehearsed nearly as well as when Z was alive and touring and it never really breaks loose into good chaotic fun the way the Baby Snakes performances do. I think a necessary component for Z's music played live was Frank himself - a kind of zen ringmaster.
I probably won't watch this one again."
