How much bang for the buck you ask? Well, there's thrills, spills, humor, monster riffs, rock 'n' blues 'n' jazz, lots of guitars and sex! It includes concert recordings of Zappa favorites and more!
'Cheap Thrills' is the FZ compilation for the professional or the novice. Obviously the professional has all the albums of this National Treasure... but, the novice, the one looking at the fifty-plus titlesand then shrug and ask, "Where's the new Van Halen?" or "Where's the new Korn?" or "Where's the new Butter 08?" or...
You get the picture, they only care about INSTANT GRATIFICATION, not EDIFICATION. How much bang for the buck you ask? Well, there's thrills, spills, humor, monster riffs, rock 'n' blues 'n' jazz, lots of guitars and SEX! It includes concert recordings of Zappa favorites "Catholic Girls," "Bobby Brown Goes Down," and "Joe's Garage," as well as Captain Beefheart on"The Torture Never Stops (Original Version)."
The Enhanced portion features information on the complete FZ catalog to pull even the most wary of consumers into the Zappa Universe. And artwork by Cal Schenkel includes enough secret clues to have the tongues wagging until the Zomby Woof shoos those cows home.
They told us we were crazy. They said "You can't do that in stores anymore." You'll be very glad we didn't listen.
