Should have said that this would be my first Zappa purchase, so I should probably just buy Strictly Commercial right?

Yeah, I do'nt actually have any CDs personally from Frank Zappa, my uncle does though, but yeah, I do'nt live with him anymore, so I guess it's not really any help. :-\

You're thinking of the song "Don't Eat Yellow Snow" It's a Zappa classic and it's very cool.

*whew* I could have imagined how retarded I would have felt if I was wrong, and I just came into this thread like, HEY DIDNT HE DO THAT SONG ABOUT YELLOW SNOW? haha. But, thanks. Made me feel a little better, like I wasn't a complete idiot. :blink:

Get Sheik Yerbouti!

"I have been in you, and you have been in me, and we have been so intimately entwined..... and when I was in you, I might have been undignified and maybe that is why you cried.... go ahead and roll over, I'm going in you again!"

Some nice solo tracks. And the guitar riff on I'm So Cute is one of my favourites.
