What I don't get is that you start talking about FZ albums for the uninitiated and then you put virtually every studio release in chronological order. Sounds more like you're reviewing Zappa albums.

However, for the uninitiated I'd reccomend:

Freak Out!
Overnite Sensation
Hot Rats
One Size Fits All

Good call there, waka! If you don't think you like Zappa after those four the there is no point in continuing.

I'd add Sheik Yerbouti into that mix too.

I get your point, but I don't consider it an essential release. It's one of the albums I never liked too much.

Maybe a choice between Shiek and Joe's Garage to add to the essential list. That was an important stretch there with a lot of great comedy material with great bands, really great production, and among the best selling albums of his career.

Absolutely, but then if the listener is more inclined to lean towards classical compositions and orchestral music that's in tune with Edgard Varese I'd probably add 'London Symphony Orchestra Vol 1 and 2' to that list or at least Lather as it's got a bit of everything.

NOPE. That's not what it's about. The thread is about putting together some albums for those who would consider obtaining a large collection featuring the bulk of Frank's music without going broke in the process. Perhaps I should shorten it to a smaller list as mentioned but to me, this is as small as I could possibly make it and I have to agree leaving out Roxy & Elsewhere was extremely difficult.
