Released:
Label: Zappa Records
It can be argued that Roxy & Elsewhere is the artistic peak for mid-'70s Mothers -- the grand culmination of Zappa's experiments in combining jazz, prog-rock and (of course) his bizarre humor. That said, comedy ultimately takes a backseat to the ensemble's dizzying interplay, which dominates the proceedings. Particularly intense is "Echidna's Arf (Of You)" and "Don't You Ever Wash That Thing?," on which the group tears, slashes and grooves with an utterly unique balance of nerdy precision and spazzoid muscularity. Yet another monster is "Cheepnis," and it probably will make your head explode.
