Zappa spin

On the turntable is Cruising with Ruben and the Jets, Verve V6 5055-X. "IS THIS THE MOTHERS OF INVENTION RECORDING UNDER A DIFFERENT NAME IN A LAST DITCH ATTEMPT TO GET THEIR CRUDDY MUSIC ON THE RADIO?" That's what's in the bubble on the cover. Silly parody this may be, and rife with triplets and all the other sorts of period references that are to be expected, but I still love Deseri, Fountain of Love, No, No, No, and Anyway the Wind Blows. Side two has much more wear than side one. A 1984 remix has been reissued. Wikipedia says that this is from 1968.
