Hmmm, out of the 8 or so Zappa albums that I have, the top 3 would have to be....
1) Freak Out!
2) We're only In It for the Money
3) Zappa Live in New York

Yeah, I think they're pretty much my favorites, with Hot Rats and Apostrophe coming in close.

Joe's Garage

Hot Rats.. only because of Willie the Pimp.


That's interesting.... that's the only song I skip over on that album, just because i've heard it too much. Amazing how musical tastes differ, isn't it...
