hmm....this is tough.

1. Freak Out
2. Absolutely Free
3. Lumpy Gravy (Capitol Records version)
4. We're Only In It For The Money (original mix)
4. Cruising with Ruben & The Jets (original mix) (What can I say I really like 50's doo-wop)
5. Uncle Meat (original mix)
6. Hot Rats (original mix)
7. Burnt Weeny Sandwich
8. Weasels Ripped My Flesh
9. Over-Nite Sensation
10. Apostrophe

I find it very difficult to narrow this down to 10 albums. I have a fondness
for the original Mothers. I also love Waka-Jawaka, The Grand Wazoo, etc....
