Frank Zappa

coolio GNR

Recommended Posts

I'll quote what someone sent me a while ago when I asked the same question:

Song (Album)

Camarillo Brillo (Over-Nite Sensation)

I am the Slime (Over-Nite Sensation)

Peaches En Regalia (Hot Rats)

My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mama (Weasels Ripped My Flesh)

Titties & Beer (Zappa in New York)

Pygmy Twilight (Roxy & Elsewhere)

Cheepnis (Roxy & Elsewhere)

Muffin Man (Bongo Fury)

Don't Eat the Yellow Snow (Best of Zappa)

Personally, I'd recommend I Am the Slime, Muffin' Man, and Don't Eat the Yellow Snow. Also, I'd pick up Dancin' Fool if I were you - it's hilarious. ^_^

Get Over-Nite Sensation and Apostrophe just for starters IMO. They're really easy to get into (especially in comparison to some of his other stuff).

After that if you want to "expand", my personal favourites are Joe's Garage and Shut Up and Play Yer Guitar.

I however am no expert on the man :(, but those are just my favourite albums out of what I've got (I really need to get more though, especially some earlier stuff I think).

I must have a sick mind. When I saw the topic as "Frank Zappa - I want to get into him" my first inclinations were to reply with "You'll need a shovel."

Anyway, great man, song wise two of my favourites have always been "Watermelon in Easter Hay" and "Peaches en Regalia."

If you get into Zappa's stuff, I'd also like to recommend his friend and contemporary, Captain Beefheart.

I have listened to some of his tracks and decided this is just not my type of music.

I like:

Joe's Garage

My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mama

Bobby Brown Goes Down

His music is kinda strange and wierd.

Thanks for all your recomendations.

Zappa is sort of an aquired taste.
