"Flex-Able" was recorded on a Fostex 1/4-inch 8-track machine in guitarist Steve Vai's home studio between April '83 and November '83. Self-financed, this record turned into an underground favorite, in spite of the low budget approach. Many of Vai's compositions reflect mentor and former boss Frank Zappa's musical influence and offbeat sense of humor that makes for some 'Zappa-esque' and entertaining moments ("Little Green Men", "Boy-Girl Song"). "Flex-Able" is so named becasue of its diversity, and includes the oustanding instrumental "The Attitude Song".
