Liner Notes

Background Information

Larry LaLonde is an American guitarist for the band Primus. Lalonde said he wanted Primus to be a cross between Zappa and Dead Kennedys and that he thought Zappa was one of the greatest guitarists that ever lived: "My favorite guitar player ever is Frank Zappa. When I think of what makes a good guitar solo, Zappa's playing is the thing I think of. It's the ultimate example of how a guitar should sound."[1] He chose his favourite Zappa compositions and songs for this album.

Les Claypool

Primus band mate Les Claypool commented on Zappa: "I really appreciate anybody who has any type of signature, whether it’s a guitar player or somebody who makes pancakes. It’s so rare to have your thumbprint really stand out from the rest of the bunch. He was a fellow who challenged himself and did what he needed to remain interested in making music and creating. I think that’s very bold because when most people find their comfort zone, they stick with it. He’s a shining example for guys like myself to take chances, and not be afraid to take those chances. His humor was amazing—-“Dumb All Over” is still incredibly timely. It’s almost scary. He knew how to hit the nail on the head and still have it tickle your funny bone or bring forth this odd imagery that would border on silly. But, he would never get ridiculous to the point of where it would undermine his stature."[2] -.

Lalonde is also interviewed in the documentary Cry Baby:The Pedal that Rocks the World.
