Apart from all of the them do you have a list of an ultimate recording session that you would love to have been present at?
I guess a lot of Zappa's releases were pieced together from different sessions with many overdubs. WOIIFTM for example was built from a set of basic tracks with multiple music, vocal and special effects overdubbed later. I love however that very short segment of footage of Zappa, Roy and Ian in the studio getting set from on one of the many video montages and I would loved to have been there.
Hell, I would love to have been at all the studio sessions with those early Mother's.

Well to get things started, these would be my favourites;

Freak Out
Absolutely Free
The How did that get in there? session and the orchestral segments that went onto Lumpy Gravy
Hot Rats
The sessions that made up Burnt Weeny Sandwich

Well, I'd've loved to be in the room for the Waka/Wazoo sessions and for the initial playbacks of the Jazz From Hell material.

To hang out at Joe's Garage for the rehearsals in the eighties would have been cool.

The wacky bits from Flrentine Pogen and Andy, from OSFA.
Picking FZ's brain about the inspiration, harmonies and so forth.

I'd love to hear all of the snippets that were edited together to make up Brown Shoes Don't Make It from the original.
Actually back to what I originally said, which was the whole of AF.

Uncle Meat sessions definitely, but the recording of Holiday in Berlin, Full Blown or RDNZL as on ST would be pretty good too.

It intrigues me a bit what it would have been like for FZ and the band up on the mountains in Colorado in December (Caribou Studios 1974).

I'm with that.
I'd also liked to have been at the recording of King Kong for the Ponty album. I'd also love to have sat in on the long piece from the same album and watched Tripp play that percussion
