Label: Frank Zappa Catalog
In the mid-'70s Zappa became the very thing he had always mocked: a rock star. After 1973's Over-Nite Sensation became exactly that, he released Apostrophe ('), which again went gold. Steeped in silly Eskimo humor, both the opener "Don't Eat the Yellow Snow" and "Nanook Rubs It" became stoner-joke anthems for young nerds across America. Further into the record, former Cream bassist Jack Bruce lends his services on greasy groover "Uncle Remus." Apostrophe (') closes with the perv-blues "Stink-Foot"; no idea what that title means, yet by song's end you'll be praying you don't contract it, too!
