Frank Zappa And The Mothers Of Invention Cruising With Ruben And The Jets on 180g LP
Shattering conventions – musical, social, political – was the life's work of Frank Zappa, the iconoclastic musical genius, rock legend and intellectual firebrand of the late 20th century whose work is equally revered by hardcore rockers and serious musical scholars. 1968's Cruising with Ruben & The Jets is the fourth studio album by Zappa And The Mothers Of Invention. As with the band's previous three efforts, it's a conceptual affair, influenced by '50s doo wop and rock 'n' roll and was conceived as part of a project called No Commercial Potential, which also produced the three albums: Lumpy Gravy, We're Only In It for the Money and Uncle Meat. Home to the accessible standouts "Cheap Thrills," "Deseri" and "Anyway the Wind Blows."
