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.
