Unusual for a Zappa album to open with the star turn; he usually waits until midway. "Inca Road" is a superb piece that reaffirms, should it be necessary, that Zappa was an astonishingly great lead guitarist. The quality of the guitar solo is matched throughout by some skillful keyboards from George Duke. Having said that, the solo on "Po-Jama People" is also pretty nifty. This was a high-charting album for Zappa (in the USA), and for once justice was done, as other similarly great Zappa albums failed completely. This is one of 71 necessary FZ albums to own!
