Apostrophe (') is an album by Frank Zappa, his eighteenth, released on March 22,
1974. An edited version of its lead-off track, "Don't Eat the Yellow Snow," was
Zappa's first chart single, reaching position 86. Apostrophe (') remains Zappa's
biggest commercial success in the US. It was certified Gold by the RIAA on April
7, 1976. The album also peaked at number 10 on the Billboard Charts and would
end up becoming Zappa's highest-charting album.
Continuing from the commercial breakthrough of Over-Nite Sensation (1973), this
album is a similar mix of short songs showcasing Zappa's humor and musical
arrangements. The record's lyrical themes are often bizarre or obscure, with the
exception of "Uncle Remus," which is an extension of Zappa's feelings on racial
disharmony featured on his earlier song "Trouble Every Day."
