This is an original Bizarre / Reprise pressing with PHENOMENAL sound. I've been doing shootouts for this album for ages and it's always a thrill when you hear a copy that just knocks it out of the park the way this one does. Throw this on and you'll see what I mean. It's super full-bodied and super dynamic, with sound this is best described as MASSIVE. It's one of those records that just fills the room and sounds like it could go even further if you let it. The transparency is excellent, and even with a dense, complicated, classically Zappa mix there is still enough space between the various parts to make sense of it all. And on top of all that, the vinyl plays quietly. This copy was a true experience, now it's someone else's turn to live it!
4 1/2 stars Allmusic: "Without pretension, Zappa blurs the normally sharp line between intellectual concept music and the visceral immediacy of rock and R&B. Zappa's anything-goes approach and the distance between his extremes are what make Weasels Ripped My Flesh ultimately invigorating."
Vinyl: EX (crazy clean, most would say NM)
Cover: VG+ (some wear to bottom seams, light wear to corners)
Play notes: Absolutely incredible sound, vinyl plays quietly
We prefer to overdeliver and therefore grade conservatively. Our scale runs Near Mint (NM), Excellent (EX), Very Good Plus (VG+), Very Good (VG), Good Plus (G+), Good (G).
