    My favorite composition is Dupree's Paradise; specifically the version on video on the Zappa website from the Roxy, 12/1973. An absolutely masterful group performance.
    Next would be an instrumental version of Fifty-Fifty from sometime in ~5/73. Tom Fowler rips it up with a fantastic bass tone and Ponty's violin solo soars.

    Album-wise, Roxy and Apostrophe are great, but so are You Can't Do That...Vol. 2, Sleep Dirt, Hot Rats, and the Grand Wazoo.

    Hot Rats is my favorite Zappa album, by far. Too bad he never made another one quite like it.

    That's just what I could think of in 30 seconds, FZ was a musical genius with an attitude. It is very hard for me to pick a favorite but it would probably be Camarillo Brillo.

    Killer bass groove from Tom Fowler, and a killer violin solo from Jean-Luc Ponty. An underrated track!
