This digitally remastered disc is a parody of the '50s doo-wop style of early rock'n'roll .

"Is this the Mothers of Invention recording under a different name in a last-ditch attempt to get their cruddy music on the radio?"

It didn't work, but who cares: This now stands as a much-loved, oddball item in the Mothers catalogue. Zappa's love for the '50s doo-wop style of early rock'n'roll was never much of a secret, and this collection of (just barely) original tunes was both a tribute and an affectionate sendup. As Zappa explained at the time, "We made it because we really like this kind of music."
