What is your favorite Frank Zappa album(s)?
I was thinking about Zappa albums because I was at a local music store today and noticed that the Zappa family is re-releasing a lot of Zappa's music on CD. I had some Zappa albums when I was in high school 20+ years ago and even saw him live once (Pier 84, NYC, 1982 or 1983) but do not currently have any of his music on CD. I will have to buy some of the newly-remastered CDs.
I am curious which Zappa albums are people's favorites
I always liked his more serious work, like Hot Rats and Wazzo, over his more commercial and/or crude pieces, although there IS something great as well about a song like "Why Does It Hurt When I Pee?" from Joe's Garage. His music has a little bit of everything for everyone - from high art to pop culture.
