Chunga's Revenge was one of three albums that the prolific composer Frank Zappa released in 1970, following Burnt Weeny Sandwich and Weasels Ripped My Flesh. The album marks the debut of Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan (among several other musicians) with the Mothers, and while their schtick has not reached the graphic proportions it later would, the thematic obsessions of the "200 Motels" (Zappa's acclaimed film and soundtrack released the following year) period are foreshadowed on tracks like "Road Ladies" and "Would You Go All the Way?"

"Other vocal numbers include the hard-rocking 'Tell Me You Love Me,' the musicians' union satire 'Rudy Wants to Buy Yez a Drink,' and the doo wop-influenced 'Sharleena.' Meanwhile, Frank Zappa's strong instrumental music incorporates Eastern European influences ('Transylvania Boogie'), cocktail jazz ('Twenty Small Cigars'), and the percussion-only 'The Clap.' Zappa's guitar tone is wonderfully biting and nasty throughout; George Duke provides another musical highlight by scat-singing a 'drum solo.'" — AllMusic
