Perhaps, but it's the musicianship of the entire TR album that floors me.
Frank himself has said (in so many words) that playing his music was so much
more enjoyable in his later bands (mid to late seventies and onward) because
the musicians were so much better. That album is fun to listen to because you
can tell they're all just having a freakin' blast playing the music.

Recently saw Dweezel and Zappa Plays Zappa. They do an excellent job, DZ plays
guitar as well as his dad (and sometimes plays rhythm while frank plays lead on
the video screen). The band are all excellent musicians. Check out the
ZPZ DVD (it's often played on PBS stations during pledge breaks, and includes
FZ alum like Napolean Brock, Steve Vai and Terry Bozio).
Last december at the Warfield was a great show. They recently toured as
the opening act for Return to Forever - an odd, but effective pairing.

I'm more of a fan of Frank's for the irreverent humor than the music.
Then again, I liked the music more when I was less clearheaded, but
that was a whole 'nother life ago.
