Weasels Ripped My Flesh

LP (Item 505891) Bizarre/Reprise, 1970 — Condition: Very Good+
Originally: 29.99
Also available
Mothers Of Invention (Frank Zappa) — Weasels Ripped My Flesh (180 gram pressing) ... LP 20.99
A silly cover and title, but one of the most powerful records so far from Frank Zappa – a set that focuses the mad energy of The Mothers into a groove that really packs a lot of punch! The lineup here is filled with key talents – including Don Preston on organ and electronics, Sugarcane Harris on violin, Lowell George on rhythm guitar, Ian Underwood on alto, and Bunk Gardner on tenor – all players who are more than willing to go to the farther edges of Zappa's consciousness – yet also have the musical chops to make the whole thing come together beautifully! There's a bit more hard rock than some of Zappa's jazz leanings in this set – and titles include "March & Dwarf Nebula", "Didja Get Any Onya", "Directly From My Heart To You", "Toads Of The Short Forest", and "The Eric Dolphy Memorial Barbecue".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original blue label Bizarre pressing with Artisan etch. Cover has light ring & edge wear and a few small drip stains.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Mothers Of Invention (Frank Zappa)

We're Only In It For The Money
Verve, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold
An early masterpiece from Frank Zappa – one of those records that looks like it's going to be a big ol' mess when you first see the cover – but which turns out to be a carefully calculated act of madness in the end! The Mothers have all their freeform freaky brilliance intact here ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimi Hendrix Experience

Axis – Bold As Love
Reprise, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold
The Jimi Hendrix Experience at their most classic! Tripped out bluesy cosmic rock ferocity and great songs, too – firing on all cylinders here on the middle record of their ultra epic three LP series of unimpeachable greatness. Titles include "EXP", "Up From The Skies", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fleetwood Mac

Then Play On
Reprise, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
Really incredible work from the early version of Fleetwood Mac – a set that has them moving past the straighter blues of their roots, but not yet in the smooth territory of later 70s fame – music that's awash in the mindblowing guitar work of Peter Green! The pacing and song structure ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimi Hendrix

Cry Of Love
Reprise, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
(70s tan label pressing with Warner rim logo.) LP, Vinyl record album
Bizarre/Zappa (Germany), 1971. Sealed
Frank Zappa & The Mothers, live at the Fillmore East – showing the world they've got plenty of greatness to offer away from the studio! The band here is super-tight – with the ferocity of Chunga's Revenge, but still enough room between the jamming for some mad bits of dialog and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Zappa

Chunga's Revenge
Bizarre/Reprise, 1970. Sealed Gatefold
One of the most jamming Zappa albums from the early days – a set that's still got some of Frank's complicated musical leanings in play – but which features interpretation by a smoking group who no doubt helped the great one reach a much larger audience! George Duke plays lots of organ ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fleetwood Mac

Kiln House
Reprise, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold
(Original tan label stereo pressing with Artisan stamp. Includes the insert.) LP, Vinyl record album

Fleetwood Mac

Mystery To Me
Reprise, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
(Mid 70s tan label pressing with Warner rim logo – MS 2158.) LP, Vinyl record album
Reprise, 1967. Near Mint-
An early moment of genius from The Electric Prunes – and exactly the kind of record that shows why they were a cut above their contemporaries, and why Warner really backed them strongly right from the start! There's a depth here that rivals some of the group's Sunset Strip contemporaries ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Zappa

Hot Rats
Bizarre, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of those records that should be an insane dark mess, given the look of the cover – but which turns out to be a surprisingly well put-together effort all the way through! Zappa does a great job of hiding behind his hair here – never acting with the pomp that a pop genius like him ... LP, Vinyl record album

Reprise, 1972. Very Good+
(Mid 70s tan label pressing with Warner rim logo in a textured cover, with some surface wear.) LP, Vinyl record album

Velvet Underground

White Light/White Heat
Verve, 1968. Near Mint-
One of the most far-out, freaked-out albums ever from the Velvet Underground – easily the most experimental set the group ever recorded! The album's awash in really unusual sounds and styles – from the sonic blast of the title cut "White Light/White Heat", to the 17 minute ... LP, Vinyl record album
