This is another very fine instrumental from Zappa's three volume concept album Joe's Garage
. Re-issued for the CD as "On the Bus," it is immediately preceded by "Wet T-Shirt Nite
." Running to 4 minutes 19 seconds, along with the slower "Watermelon In Easter Hay
," Joe's final imaginary guitar solo, it shows the late great Frank Zappa at his finest doing what he did best, in his own words, "Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar."
The track's name comes from Toad-O, the band Mary saw before becoming a groupie.
