While it does not feature all of their singles ("I Do You", "Private Number" and "You Better Dance" are missing), it is a great compilation featuring most of their bigger hits plus key album tracks, at a time when people still cared for those. The Jets consisted of members of the Wolfgramm family, a Tongan massive from Minneapolis, Minnesota. True to the Minneapolis Sound of the mid-1980's, this is full of nice keyboards and synths with the guilty pleasures of a great hit.

Frank Zappa loved '50s doo wop music. He grew up with it, collected it, and it was the first kind of pop music he wrote (like "Memories of El Monte," recorded by the Penguins in 1962). Cruising With Ruben & the Jets, the Mothers of Invention's fourth LP, is a collection of such music, all Zappa originals (some co-written with MOI singer Ray Collins). To the unexperienced, songs like "Cheap Thrills," "Deseri," and "Jelly Roll Gum Drop" can sound like an average doo wop song.

To the unexperienced, songs like "Cheap Thrills," "Deseri," and "Jelly Roll Gum Drop" can sound like an average doo wop song. A closer look reveals unusual chord sequences, Stravinsky quotes, and hilariously moronic lyrics – all that wrapped in four-way harmony vocals and linear piano triplets.

Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention - Cruising With Ruben & The Jets (1968) {1995 Ryko Remaster}

Having blown the music world's mind with the Mothers, Frank Zappa made a left turn to indulge his childhood love of doo-wop. Recording with the rest of the Mothers, he created CRUISING WITH RUBEN & THE JETS, an album of "greasy love songs and cretin simplicity." It is also an album of authentically performed doo-wop songs that might have even been hits had they been recorded a decade earlier. From the falsetto voice singing of unrequited love, street-corner background harmonies and "Earth Angel"- styled narratives in "Love Of My Life " and "Deseri" to the questionable production values, Zappa accurately recreated the doo-wop sound. In the process, he proved that there was more to his talent than a crude sense of humor.
