or Frank Zappa Album?
Right now I'm humming " Camarillo Brillo"..........
Willie the Pimp or Dirty Love
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.
That's a toughie...
I think Peaches en Regalia is probably my favorite.
Penguin in Bondage from the Roxy 73'. At least for the past couple of hours.
In no particular order
Lonesome Cowboy Burt (Swaggart version)
Don't eat the Yellow Snow/Saint Alfonzo's Pancake Breakfast
And many, many, many, many, many, many, many more.
The Dangerous kitchen
Not just favorite Zappa song, favorite song- Peaches en Regalia.
Hot Rats is my favorite Zappa album, by far. Too bad he never made another one quite like it.
We Are Not Alone
Can't Afford No Shoes
That...or maybe Watermelon in Easter Hay.
Don't Eat Yellow Snow
Saint Alfonzo's Pancake Breakfast
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.
Titties and beer titties and beer titties and beer titties and beer titties and beer titties and beer titties and beer titties and beer titties and beer
forgot Fifty Fifty
Bill the mountain.
Killer bass groove from Tom Fowler, and a killer violin solo from Jean-Luc Ponty. An underrated track!
