It's not that I'll listen to you, but I'm curious if you folks will agree here...

That could take a while.....

Basically anything live trips my trigger.... (YCDTOSA is in constant rotation when I don't know what else to listen to)

Joe's Garage (the whole thing) is what got me started, so that's on top...as is Sheik Yerbouti....
Hot Rats
Burnt Weenie Sandwich
Waka/Jawaka
Overnight Sensation
Apostrophe
Grand Wazoo
One Size Fits All
Läther


Some of the odds and ends things like the Joe's Domage, Corsage, etc. series... Imaginary Diseases, and like Lost Episodes and Mystery disc are fun on occasion...

Nothing Synclavier really sets me into a frenzy like some people... I GET it, but it doesn't make me wanna sit back with a glass of wine, and just listen....

Other things depend on the mood....But the live stuff from all era's makes me happy!

I'll try and this is only as I think if it now, it changes month by month and honestly I love most of Frank's amazing music.

1. The Grand Wazoo "One of the most amazing albums of all time, it's simply so exciting to my ear."
2. Over Night Sensation. "Purely for the song "I'm The Slime." which hits the nail on the head on so many levels for me."
3. Hot Rats "This is so close to The Grand Wazoo for me it's not funny, but I am doing this as an in the moment list and for the record people, lists are not stupid. There's nothing worse than someone who can't like or hate something but remains neutral it's completely gutless. Have a say damn it."
4. Burny Weenie Sandwhich. "Absolutely love this album. Very interesting and enjoyable to listen to again and again."
5. Freak Out!. "There's nothing else like it and it's a timeless classic if ever there was one."
6. Roxy The Movie!!!! "Just love watching my Bluray of this, it's one of the greatest concerts ever... Does it count that it's a video?"
7. London Symphony Orchestra Vol 1 and 2 back to back. "A very interesting performance of these works and I find them very enjoyable. So interesting and wonderful."
8. The Yellow Shark. "In particular 'G-Spot Tornado'. WOW. What a piece of music and it sounds so incredible played by this dedicated ensemble."
9. Them Or Us. "A fun album I love singing along to. Seriously have you ever heard anyone else write a song about 'Truck Driver Divorce"? I doubt it but Frank did and it's amazingly fun. The final track with Frank's version of a Blues classic 'Whipping Post' is incredible."
10. Lather. "Seriously one of my all time favourite Frank Zappa recordings, it's got something in it for practically every music fan and I recommend listening to this recording before listening to the Warners Sucks single album releases 'Studio Tan', 'Sleep Dirt', 'Orchestral Favourites' and 'Zappa In New York'. But do get those as well because they compliment the original intended version of Lather by providing alternate mixes and versions, along with a few extra tracks to enjoy.

Well honestly, that's it from me. This was WAY too tough as I really love all of Frank's music but that list is a pile I couldn't leave if the house was on fire so to speak.

ZAP ON!!!!!

^^^ Better try it again... unless you have some special version of Thing-Fish that includes G-Spot Tornado.

Yeah, it was an oops, note it's now edited. G-Spot Tornado also features on "Jazz From Hell" but played via Synclavier.

I think his best was Over-nite Sensation. That's definitely the one I'd recommend to anyone who wondered which one to buy first. Everyone seems to like "Camarillo Brillo", and "Montana" is pretty much his signature tune.

Close runners-up are One Size Fits All, Roxy & Elsewhere, and Apostrophe, in that order.

His potty jokes ruined a lot of his material, imho.

Edit: My audience award might go to FZ:OZ. I think FZ's guitar "sound" was the best of any player I ever heard, and that album is bursting with it. Love it!
