Minus the fact that Frank isn't here anymore, this has to be the best time to be a Zappa fan.

All the albums in their original form only a click away.

A steady flow of previously unreleased live shows.

(Some of his best stuff imho)

 

Been hooked on the Road Tapes, Venue #2 release for the last couple of days. Unreal performance with one of his wildest line-ups (Zappa, Ponty, Duke, Ian & Ruth Underwood, Bruce & Tom Fowler, Humphrey).

Whoa, epic.  I just started my morning with Burnt Weeny Sandwich then rolled into Chunga's Revenge.

 

 

There are some days where I think Burnt Weeny Sandwich > Hot Rats

 

 

 

 

Waka/Jawaka (Hot Rats II) is one of my (and my bandmate's) absolute favorite albums, too.

i love this early Zappa stuff. there's so much personality in it - Frank's, of course, but also that of his band members and whoever was hanging around. there were bright stars later on, like Adrian Belew and Steve Vai (maybe others, but it's easiest for me to understand sounds that come from guitars), but i cannot hear nearly as much group personality in the later music. maybe i'm looking for something that i might as well abandon - i love the synclavier music, and i know that i'm getting pure Frank, and i know that there's no other personality to look for in it.
