Released:
Label: Zappa Records
After Orchestral Favorites, Zappa pulled in bigger classical names to work on his notated pieces. First up was the London Symphony Orchestra, which cut two LPs (both collected here). If stiffer and less accurate than the Ensemble Modern would prove in The Yellow Shark and not as violently impressive as Pierre Boulez was on his Zappa (half) album, they conjure a lively mood throughout these works, including the swing moments that crop up in both "Bob in Dacron" and "Sad Jane," the moments of rock groove in "Envelopes," and the Stravinsky-ian woodwinds that kick off "Mo 'n Herb's Vacation."
