Love the whole album but I had to pick Zomby Woof. Some really intense Jazzfusion and a great concept to boot; not to mention it was the first Zap album I bought. (Thanks Frankie!)

Best example for an album that is exciting from the first to the last second. Every singing, solo, accompaniment, arrangement, mix, simply everything is perfect. I refuse to name one single song (pure injustice). This album helped me very much in my sometimes very difficult approach to FZs music (way back, when...).
:wink:
(wonder, why so few people named Dinah-Moe-Humm?)

7. Dinah-Moe Humm
6. Montana
5. Dirty Love
4. I'm The Slime
3. Camarillo Brillo
2. Fifty-Fifty
1. Zomby Woof

Prefer Zomby Woof just slightly over Fifty-Fifty, the guitar solo on the latter is just insane. Frank is attacking the guitar but Zomby Woof has just an insane energy and the most 'musical' song on the album.

Thanks for acknowledging that. I seldom see it acknowledged. What's the deal with that 50/50 solo? Is it edited? Sped up? It's the most mysterious Zappa (studio?) solo I can think of. It is insane.

I have read that apparently there wasn't originally gonna have a solo from frank in it but some sort of bridge instead but he picked up his guitar and literally attacked it and some pulled on the strings as he played.
I'll try and find the source for you.

It's in my top 5 zappa guitar solos.

Is there any others like it? In a purely visceral sense? Zomby Woof is similar but not as harsh and has more structure. Maybe FIVE-FIVE-FIVE and some parts of Ship Ahoy.

Anyways for fun top 5 guitar solos. (Could do a new thread I suppose)

5. Po-Jama People
4. BIG SWIFTY (ROAD TAPES VENUE 2 VERSION)
3. FIFTY-FIFTY
2. RAT TOMAGO
1. DROWNING WITCH

Thanks, man. Absolutely one of my favorite solos but I always wonder if he played it straight through just like that. That solo seems superhuman.

Fifty Fifty here... I almost went with Zomby Woof because of the shredding razor blade solo... but Ricky takes it.

No-one going for dirty love? :shock:
The drums rule, great riff too.

With fifty fifty, as soon as the violin starts, its skipped - so I miss the FZ solo. Thanks JLP...
I hate every violin solo FZ ringed in :twisted:
TT

^ I love that kind of hate. So pure. You've gotta hear that guitar solo, though. Edit that shit!

Camarillo Brillo deserves some love. When did FZ ever play lead like that again?
