Zappa opened no appearance at the Abrams Convention nor did 3,000 screaming teenagers give him a standing ovation. In the tradition of Aerosmith and Van Halen, which this album is not, excitement does not exist, nor will it mysteriously appear, since who cares if there's another Zappa album anyway.

This release differs to the other versions of the album that include "The Frank Zappa . as the LP and sleeve are printed in Holland, whereas the other variants have records and sleeve printed in the UK. Includes inner sleeve with lyrics on one side and a letter advertising the Shut Up 'N' Play Yer Guitar boxset on the other. Track B1 titled on label as: "Ship Arriving Too Late To Save A Drowning Witch". Remote recordings: UMRK Mobile. Over-dubs & Remix: UMRK Central.

Label Barking Pumpkin Records. Bob Harris, Ike Willis, Roy Estrada. Drowning Witch Lyrics. Teen-age Prostitute Lyrics. More Frank Zappa albums.

Drowning Witch" may be one of his hardest pieces to perform. This album clearly lacks ambition and tends to get lost among the man's humongous discography, but it should not be overlooked. It contains a few good songs ("No Not Now" is quite entertaining), strong guitar work from Zappa and Steve Vai, and it is not defaced by the cold 1980s sound of subsequent albums.
