Brown Shoes Don't Make It just might be my favorite song of all time. Definitely one of Zappa's greatest. The rest of the album certainly has its moments, but it is noticeably sloppier (not entirely their fault, but still) than most of his early material.
This might just be my favorite album of all time. Zappa's inimitable satirical ramblings mixed with the sweetest freeform virtuouso jam-making around - yum! Why is it so overlooked in the history of prog? It's ONLY the first full-fledged concept album and no one seems to even acknowledge its existence! Et tu, Channel 4?
