I always start "Zappa virgins" with Apostrophe and/or Joe's Garage Act 1, then adjust from there depending on what they tell me about it afterwards.

I gave Make a jazz noise to some of my friends and that cd got 3 persons into Zappa. I can see you don't have this cd, I strongly suggest this as your next Zappa cd. It's fantastic.<br><br>In my oppinion, this is the best 88 album.<br>Not much new, but verry good versions of old stuff.<br>

Depends on what they currently like music/wise. <br><br>I find that most people can digest OSFA , Joes Garage & Tinsel Town, without skipping a bite. If you know they have a good sense of humor, then Sheik Yerbouti and You Are What You Is make excellent appetizers.  If they are older (over 45 ) then Freak Out is extrememely palatable as a first course.<br><br>It just depends, that's all there is to it.<br><br>Bon Appetit! :P<br><br>

But if you're in a hurry I'd say Läther! It's like an excellent sampler of different styles of music, and it's very funny.
