Info

Cruising with Ruben & the Jets is the fourth studio album by the Mothers of Invention. Released on December 2, 1968, on Bizarre and Verve Records with distribution by MGM Records, it was subsequently remixed by Frank Zappa and reissued independently. As with the band's previous three albums, it is a concept album, influenced by 1950s doo wop and rock and roll. The album's concept deals with a fictitious Chicano doo wop band called Ruben & the Jets, represented by the cover illustration by Cal Schenkel.

He grew up with it, collected it, and it was the first kind of pop music he wrote 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 may sound like an average doo wop song. The Mothers Of Invention Cruising With Ruben & The Jets. Genre: Rock. The remix of Cruising with Ruben & the Jets was the only version of the album available from 1984 until 2010, when Greasy Love Songs was released. Some copies of this release may have the mono number, V 5055 showing at the front bottom left. This album was not released in mono, so the positional error in showing V 5055 is only a manufacturing error.

The album's concept deals with a fictitious doo wop band called Ruben & the Jets, represented by the cover illustration by Cal Schenkel, which depicts the Mothers of Invention as anthropomorphic dogs. Released on December 2, 1968 on Bizarre and Verve Records with distribution by MGM Records, it was subsequently remixed by Frank Zappa and reissued independently. In Cruising with Ruben and the Jets , Zappa wanted to tribute all those doo wop and R n' b groups he was a fan in the 50's. This is a parody album and it has no progressive content at all , but it's good to listen once in a while. The melodies are addictive and the vocals hilarious , typical Zappa humour. Only the cartoon cover art hints at the rock 'n' roll mockery more typical of the Mothers of Invention. A final note: what might seem like a stingy two-star rating is hardly a measure of the album's quality, but merely an acknowledgement that it would only make sense to an already confirmed Frank Zappa aficionado.
