Feeding the Monkies at Ma Maison is an album by Frank Zappa, which was released posthumously in 2011 by The Zappa Family Trust on Zappa Records.


Executed by Frank Zappa on his Synclavier at the Utility Muffin Research Kitchen circa 1986, it was originally intended as a vinyl release. It appears to be the missing link between Jazz from Hell (1986) and Civilization, Phaze III (1994).[3] Of the track "Worms from Hell" 28 seconds first appeared as opening title music for the Video from Hell VHS release in 1987.

Apparently there was a first pressing of the CD, which has only the first 3 tracks, and only the second pressing added the CD bonus tracks! There is no way to know which version is inside the packaging.
