Uncle Meat will probably always be my favorite Zappa album along with the L.S.O. Volumes I & II.

Uncle Meat is probably my favourite FZ album.<br>As I explained in another thread I've heard FZ in 1969 for the first time. "Hot Rats" was playing on the radio. After I have bought Hot Rats I discovered Uncle Meat and I still listen it once a month, sometimes once a week, since 35 years...... :D<br><br>That music changed my life.

Uncle Meat is one of the most brillant soundtracks ever created. Although I could do without the 40 minutes of the Uncle Meat Film Excert Part I and Uncle Meat Film Excert Part  II. Doesnt Tengo Na Minchia Tanta sound like it was recorded in the 90's?

I have no idea why Frank decided to put it on the album, other than to serve as a "treat" for fans like the dialogue.

I tried to translate this track...this is what I got from Dictionary.com<br><br>Italian: I hold Na Minchia A lot<br><br>Spanish: I have Na Minchia As much<br><br>Portuguese: Tengo In The Minchia As much<br><br>Is this song title just made up words? Lol. <br>

I'm dying to hear this album, does it have any kind of experimental tracks on it, or combined?<br><br>I heard that "Dwarf Nebula Processional March & Dwarf nebula" from Weasels ripped my flesh sounds like something out from the Uncle meat "session" or what-so-ever, is it true?<br><br> -/dr_grogg<br><br><br>  <br>
