Album of the Week- Mothers of Invention "Cruisin' with Ruben and the Jets"

This is a new weekly installment I figured would be kinda cool. I buy too many records not to at least share a little of it with people. Anyhow, This is the first one. Mothers of Invention "Cruisin' with Ruben and the Jets". This was the Mothers' 4th record, and was released in 1969 on the Verve/Bizarre label. The record is a throwback/parody of 50's Doo Woop. I remember my Pops talkin' about this album every time Zappa's name was mentioned. It's fuckin' awesome. Some of the songs are pretty goofy, as are most Zappa tracks, but there's some seriously good psychedelic Doo Woop on this record. Here's my favorite cut from the record "Any Way the Wind Blows".
