  • UNCLE MEAT was digitally remixed in 1987 with approximately 40 minutes of previously unreleased material from the original sessions.
  • Personnel: Frank Zappa (vocals, guitar, percussion); Ray Collins (vocals); Nelcy Walker (soprano); Bunk Gardner (flute, piccolo, clarinet, bass clarinet, bassoon, soprano saxophone, alto saxophone, tenor saxophone); Ian Underwood (flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, baritone saxophone, piano, celesta, harpsichord, electric organ); Euclid James Sherwood (tenor saxophone, tambourine); Don Preston (electric piano); Art Tripp (vibraphone, marimba, xylophone, drums, timpani, wood block, bells); Ruth Komanoff (vibraphone, marimba); Roy Estrada (electric bass); Jimmy Carl Black, Billy Mundi (drums).
  • Recording information: 10/1967-09/1968.
  • Arranger: Frank Zappa.
  • Over the two-record set, Zappa manages to cover the entire spread of his interests. Masquerading as a movie in progress, it is a way of highlighting the struggle of trying to keep the band together against a pretty hostile, or worse, apathetic audience. The frustration of putting something out that is artistically brilliant has a particular significance, as music and film go hand in hand. The film dialogue is either hilarious or it will leave you cold. The former is the general consensus. Zappa was so far ahead that his earth life ended before we caught up with him. Weird but highly recommended.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (5/31/69, p.37) - "...a consummate piece of work...as instrumentation, it is artistry...expertly crafted cynicism...a serious piece of music..."

Down Beat - Recommended

Mojo (Publisher) (p.139) - "Zappa's sixth album placed the focus on his instrumental prowess. The result is rich with his arch and artful compositions..."
