Studio Tan

Official unofficial album released in 1978, ie not the way Zappa planned it to be released, was originally part of the Läther Set- finally released in 1996.

ZA - Zoot Allures by a hair over Black Napkins
ZINY - Punky's Whips if it counts, otherwise I Promise...
ST - Going with Greggery Peccary; but Revised Music and RDNZL are utterly splendiferous too.

So, no Läther? I like Läther better than Sleep Dirt/Studio tan etc.

Punky's Whips counts for ZINY as far as I'm concerned.
RDNZL for ST. What else could it be?
No favorite on SD. I listen to Läther.

Well as I continue my search for an original vinyl copy of Sleep Dirt it is on to
Sheik Yerbouti
Was Frank into Cheek and Chong at the time because the title and cover remind me a lot of Things are Tough All Over- TATAO in Zappa speak Apparently the title is a spoof of Shake Your Booty by KC and the Sunshine Band

Anyway, we have moved on briefly from the Lather fallout and some new stuff and his has got his own label, expect a lot more LP's now we got Bobby Brown big in Europe, maybe the lyrics were more acceptable there! but I'll go for City of Tiny Lites

Also the band has changed a lot with Adrian Belew doing a mean Dylan, Tommy Mars, Ed Mann, Peter Wolf added to the cast.

Frank Zappa (in the flesh!) played Lather on the radio in 1978. That's the official release date.
:x

I think Cheech and Chong were into FZ.
I choose Flakes but only with a gun to my head and with apologies to Yo' Mama.

Yeah Ithink your right Zappa influenced Cheech and Chong :mrgreen: but it was a bit hard to get Zappa radio release from Oz or most other palces in the world :oops:

Orchestral Favorites

Now for the last Lather fall out album 1979 is a busy year for Zappa Fans. Not that Zappa approve the release of these last Warner Bros albums.
I like this album with the 37-piece Abnuceals Emuukha Electric Symphony Orchestra withTerry Bozzio on drums. Iremeber when I first was this record in the shops and thinking is this orchestral or is Zappa just having a lend of us.......

I'll go for Bogus Pomp

We have finally made it to the last and four or fifth (if you split Joe I & II-III, as released separately) record release for Zappa in 1979. Sleep Dirt, Sheik Yerbouti, Orchestral favourites & Joe's Garage The record presses must have been smokin and the Utility Muffin Research Kitchen was still getting built. Zappa described the album as a "stupid little story about how the government is going to do away with music."
So we have a rock Opera about Zappa favorite topics music sex, religion and politics. I originally got copies of this backwards a second hand copy of ii&III in the mid eighties and didn't manage to find a copy of I till a couple of years later- was hard to find any Zappa in Oz back then....
My pick Watermelon in Easter Hay full name "Playing a Guitar Solo With This Band is Like Trying To Grow a Watermelon in Easter Hay"

Fair enough. Besides, it's your thread.

You and I have similar favorites. Watermelon all the way.

Were still in 1981 and Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar (SUNPTG- I just made that one up I think)

As Zappaheads know his album titles have often been reduced to initials because of their length and this one is no exception, consisting of three LP's all released together and called variously -1 Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar, 2. Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar Some More and 3. Return of the Son of Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar and the albums consists solely of instrumentals and improvised solos and is great stuff but I would not recommend trying to listen to it all in one sitting, Wagner Ring cycle fatigue comes to mind.

I'm thankful I've got the boxed CD version of this one.

Cool post and I love Doreen too

Now its time for Ship Arriving Too Late to Save a Drowning Witch :mrgreen: and we have finally left 1981 a big year with 3 Zappa albums released
Image

So lets Gag me with a spoon...... no not really not my favourite Zappa song but made him a lot of bucks but i love this album valley girl aside Drowning Witch is one of my fav Zappa songs. Who else would put Stravinsky and Dragnet together in one song wow...... Envelopes is another standout and Teen-Age Prostitute always brings a smile, I still have my cassette version of this one that I originally bought (still works) and the vinyl and CD versions....
Steve Via and Frank are on fire on this one
