  • Zappa Sells Out! :)

    The third album from the genius and his motley band lampooned society and the hippies escaping it. We look back at a '60s masterpiece.

      And I should have pointed out, after selling out for all that money, you would think he could afford a more flattering dress.

        All of his Mother's of Invention album's are amazing. Lost interest when he disbanded the Mother's for some reason.

            I'm a big fan of Frank Zappa and, in particular, two of his most well known records, Over-Nite Sensation and Apostrophe.

            Those albums, however, are two of the worst sounding records in my entire collection. I'd like to know if anyone has found decent pressings that sound better than mediocre.

                He was always entertaining, Joe's Garage & Sheik Yerbouti were two of my favorites.

                    You've missed out on a ton of great music, some already mentioned above. Plus his last great touring band, truly "the best band you never heard". And I wouldn't count myself a Zappa fan at all, just a music lover.

                      I never really got into Zappa but I did enjoy Hot Rats. The Classic reissue sounds pretty good so original must be as good or better.

                        Give Uncle Meat a listen. When Zappa was with the Mothers of Invention. Recorded at 30 ips on an 8 channel Scully tape deck and as a result a very good recording. And musically one of my favorites.
