"Billy James’s book about Frank Zappa and his early entourage is flat-out wonderful."—Booklist

"What makes James’s book such a delight is, this time the story gets told by the original group members, who give a clearer insight into the natural history of The Mothers, their music, their hidden talents, and Zappa’s tightly disciplined, drug-free working methods and demands. To give away too many of the truly freaky anecdotes sprinkled throughout the text would spoil the fun."—The Wire
