Apostrophe(') and Over-night sensation is pretty more straight forward rock than much else on that list so no doubt that they have been purchased by "people-that-want-to-hear-good-straight-forward-rock-dum-di-dum".<br><br>Or maybe not....<br><br><br> -/dr_grogg<br><br>

[quote author=SenseOfDoubt link=board=albums;num=1082316189;start=0#3 date=04/22/04 at 10:16:16]any ideas how many albums (cds, lps) etc. the man has sold in the last 30 years??? [/quote]<br><br>disco boy estimates 15 million, i'd say that's a pretty accurate assement, maybe a bit on the high side....that's half a million albums a year for 30 years, or about 220,000 each on averaged over 68 official releases <br>

[quote author=Disco Boy link=board=albums;num=1082316189;start=0#2 date=04/18/04 at 15:33:45]If you put these in order according to overall US sales of each album, it would look and rank more like this:<br><br>Apostrophe (')<br>Over-nite Sensation<br>Sheik Yerbouti<br>Roxy & Elsewhere    <br>Zoot Allures<br>One Size Fits All<br>SUPYG Box Set<br>Hot Rats <br>Absolutely Free<br>[i]ZINY<br>Uncle Meat<br>Freak Out!<br>Burnt Weenie Sandwich<br>Joe’s Garage Acts I, II & III[/i] (since 1987 as one release)<br>Bongo Fury<br>Waka Jawaka<br>Grand Wazoo<br>YCDTOSA #2<br><br>I'm surprised SATLTSADW & WOIIFTM isn't on amazon's top sellers list...<br><br>[/quote]<br><br>I'm sitting here thinking "ZINY?".  Oh! Zappa in New York! Duh!<br> :P <br><br>Still cant believe WOIIFTM isn't on there.
