I relistened to this after a gap of 20+ years.Although much of it has been reproduced elsewhere or ignored, the title track, Apostrophe, is the most brilliant collaboration between FZ and Jack Bruce. I have never heard a better bass solo, and can't remember another track where FZ played so well but with so much deference to another band member. Worth it just for those 5 miutes.

Great for a first time Zappa listener

||Musical vocabulary extension pleasure|
From this record, I learned not to eat the yellow snow and why, to be careful of overenthusiastic poodles, to watch out for gurus selling cosmic debris scams, and how jazz fusion jams can be ecstatic. I also learned that Uncle Remus Zappa understood the fatal sociopolitical economic equations of our times, and that Stink Foot is the funniest song about foot odor of all time, although Paul McCartney's Smile Away on Ram is a good companion piece. This is Frank's masterpice, one of several. Musically and lyrically top notch.

||Probably Zappa's Best|
Apostrophe has everything that makes Frank Zappa great: funny lyrics and stories, interesting and catchy melodies, and superb songwriting and guitar work. "Nanook Rubs It" is a highlight, as are "Uncle Remus" and the title track. The best way to listen to this album is straight through, and the more you listen to it, the more it will grow on you.
