Synopsis

Product Description
The cult classic solo album from the long-time Mothers of Invention bassist! And, though Simmons cut this record before he officially joined the Mothers, the Zappa influence is profound; not only did this come out on Frank's Straight label, but he produced the album (under the pseudonym LaMarr Bruister) and played lead guitar. Zappa-ologists will also note that the melody to the title track was later used for 'Sharleena', and that Simmons' composition 'Wonderful Wino' was later added to the Zappa repertoire (Ian Underwood's on board, too). But famous collaborators aside, this album is really Simmons' show, a tour de force of inventive songwriting and surprisingly powerful singing, and a fresh stab at the psychedelic rock genre that had by 1970 grown tired.
 

CD Reviews

Great Blast From the Past
E. Busch | 09/25/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Well worth your money. This is a rare slice of rock from the late 60's partially produced by the late, great Frank Zappa. Features some nice songwriting, plus FZ's guitar on a few tracks. Long live Jeff Simmons!"
