Arrgh, damn cross-posters, got me at it now too  ;D<br><br>Anyway, you can read my reply here, but it doesn't add much to what has already been said, except to recommend Zoot Allures too.<br><br>http://www.zappa.com/yabb/YaBB.cgi?board=quotes;action=display;num=1099576741

"You Are What You Is" NEEDS MORE GUITAR SOLOS.  <br><br>In spite of that shortcoming, there are some great vocals and vocal harmonies on it.<br><br>VCF

I think FZs voice is one of the most beautiful voices to sing or speak the english language.<br>  Noone could get the point across like Frank.<br>  THat cynical snear he has in his vocals is so very entertaining.<br>  I understand what Lgravy is trying to get across.<br>FZ wasn't a crooner like Ike. And there no reason for him to be.<br>  But I would say, if FZ thought he was limited, he used any limitations to his advantage.<br>  I think FZ is a GREAT singer.

Not comparable to any singer I know. Everything fits in each song perfectly. Not comparable to Ike or Ray, they fit perfectly in the songs they sing! But personally I think Frank should have sang all his songs!  Frank Zappa was a singer in the FZ traditional way you could ever think of...HURRAY FOR FRANK ZAPPA'S VOCALS! MUSIC IS THE BEST! ;D
