Broadway the Hard Way album for sale by Frank Zappa was released May 02, 1995 on the Ryko Distribution label. Recorded on his infamous final world tour of 1988, BROADWAY THE HARD WAY is classic late-period Zappa at his satirical best. Broadway the Hard Way CD music In fact, this is one of the best Zappa collections of novelty songs in his huge catalog. Broadway the Hard Way buy CD music Of course, underlying all the buffoonery is one of the greatest assemblages of musicians ever to grace the stage. From long-time Zappa sidemen like Ike Willis, Chad Wackerman and Ed Mann to virtuoso guitarist Mike Keneally, keyboardist/vocalist Bobby Martin and a stellar horn section, this is a group far superior to (and larger than) any that FZ ever took under his baton. Broadway the Hard Way CD music contains a single disc with 17 songs.   ...See Full Description

As great as ever
Zappa is one of the most underrated rock guitarists, and there are many moments on this cd that display what I mean. And, don't miss the "duet" with Sting, who tries, unsuccessfully, to be as irreverent as Zappa. Murder By Numbers is nothing like Jesus Thinks You're A Jerk or Jezebel Boy. The cd is worth the price just for Elvis Has Just Left The Building!

I've been listening to this album for over 10 years. I know it inside and out, but to this day I hear new sounds and parts all the time. Zappa, and the musicians are brilliant. I double dog dare you to not love it!

Frank Zappa's politically charged album about the Republican party is more relevent now that W is president. He predicted the future and it is not good.

Viva Zappa
This is a great CD! It has all the things Zappa fans love, and has a guest appearance by Sting. I especially liked the jazz number, "Stolen Moments."

Frank's last rock stand.
What could be construed as Frank's last rock album, non-compilations aside. The lyrics (for the most part)are topical late-80s political commentary, and the music is simply horn-filled cue-followed satirical jazz-rock brilliance. If the jokes feel a bit dated at times, the notes more than make up for it. Recommended for fans of the most hyper & eclectic FZ titles such as "Zappa In New York", "Sheik Yerbouti" and "You Are What You Is".
