    STRICTLY GENTEEL....played with a rock band. WHAT??!! What a TREAT for the ears (no pun intended).

    How anyone could give this disc a 1 star review. Well, considering the persons leaving the review failed to leave his or her names, it's safe to say they simply loathe Zappa.

    I first heard STRICTLY GENTEEL and WHAT'S NEW IN BALTIMORE on a disc contained in Steve Vai's "Secret Jewel Box" set. And they blew me away. I love the Mothers, but I am also a great fan of the bands Zappa put together throughout his entire career. This is one of my favorite line-ups. I highly recommend this CD to anyone who is even remotely a fan of Zappa's. It was his tradition to play the Paladium in NYC on Halloween night virtually every year. To be privy to the music that took place inside that little dance mecca is a gift. The ironic thing about this album being recorded at the Paladium: I started playing guitar in 1977, at age 7. I first listened to Frank in 1982. There was a point in my twenties when all I listened to was Zappa and Vai. Their playing and songwriting pushed my playing and songwriting to places I never imagined I would or could ever go. In 1997 I was hit by a car right across the street from the Paladium and am currently disabled and unable to play guitar. So, for me, even just to listen to Zappa and Vai together is enough inspiration to keep keeping on and keep trying to get this fretting hand of mine to work again so when I am able I can jam along to this CD; one of the FINEST Zappa CDs available. Let me remind you again, though, this is NOT the Mothers. This is the early '80s. I'm not one of these people who detests everything Zappa did after the Mothers. I look at the Mothers as one incredible era of Zappa's genius, and everything after as a different form of that same genius. "ZAPPA!!!"
