This is hard. Dupree's is great, but I like it better as a jazz piece.
The extension of Naval Aviation is beautiful.

Probably Jonestown or the titular piece...yeah, I'm going with 'The Perfect Stranger'.

Since I have heard so many better versions of Dupree's from the 73/74 bands I decided to go with
The Perfect Stranger

Jonestown, it's very powerful yet so atmospheric.

This is another of my favourite Zappa releases.
It's a hard one but I'll have to go with The Perfect Stranger.
And ya...Jonestown IS creepy!! Reminds me of the dark
magic Frank summons on the piece Dio Fa.

Also, I found it fascinating how he (composed?) Girl in the
Magnesium Dress. Using "digital dust" as he referred to it?
(program code)

I've never met a Dupree's Paradise I didn't like.

I pick "Jonestown" but it's a hard choice. I listened to this whole album last week when I walked my dog on a rainy night. A superb experience was had by all. 8)
