Good old Frank!griffsterMember
I remember asking my mate, a Zappa completist, the same question a few years ago. He actually rang me back and asked me if I had any idea what I was getting myself into! Haha!.
Anyway, he suggested The best of Frank Zappa, as a taster, which I did. Then I picked up Hot Rats, Apostrophe and Over-nite Sensation. His repertoire is mind-blowingly broad, but great fun. I personally like The Grand Wazoo a lot.
Once you’ve really listened to a bit of Zappa you realise what a musical bloody genius he was and he’ll always be one of your favourite artists. He’ll also keep you busy discovering music for years!
Enjoy! As Terrahawk said, you can’t go wrong with Zappa.Posted 5 years agomudsharkMember
he did over 100 albums in many different styles
Not sure about that. Well if you include the bootleg stuff maybe, I have 60 odd.
Got most of Captain Beefheart’s output too including Lick my Decals of Baby.
As the Indian of the group once said:
The difference between his music and Frank’s was like night and day. Frank was avant garde, but Beefheart was the real thing, totally left-field.Posted 5 years ago
