1970 album by Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention. Crazy mix of music, some experimental, some standard rock, and some Jazz-Rock fusion. Includes most of the original Mothers lineup, including Don Preston, Jimmy Carl Black and Roy Estrada1.

The highlight of this album - aside from the name, which has always delighted me -- is the cover art. It's a drawing of a man dressed in a suit and tie, shaving with a weasel in his hand, holding it like you might an electric razor, with a huge bleeding gouge across his face where the weasel is biting or clawing him.

The man has a smile on his face and a little text balloon saying "Rzzzzz." The two other text balloons say, "The Mothers of Invention" and "Weasels Ripped My Flesh". The cover art was done by Neon Park.

Apparently this album was released in some european countries with a different cover -- a metal doll caught in a mousetrap. Dunno why.
