Released in 1975, album manages to include a number of personal favorites
way out of proportion to the total number of cuts (9). 'Inca Roads'
is not only a classic Zappa composition including absurd and mysterious
lyrics, it includes one of Zappa's most original guitar solos. Add
to this Zappa's paean to boredom 'Po-jama people' and the gorgeous arrangements
of Sofa no. 1 and Sofa no. 2 and you have an album that is classic in every
sense of the word.
For a real treat, you can spend a few extra shekels for the AU20 audiophile
edition of One Size Fits All. This is nicely spiffed up, put
on a neat but probably pointless gold disc, and released in a limited edition.
Mobile Fidelity, eat your heart out.
