I don't feel roxy is in the top five. I know manymany zappa fans rate it such, but not I.

I think the point Jay P is trying to make is, Roxy And Elsewhere is one of the essential Zappa masterpieces, as are are many in his vast catalog. The fact that a self-professed Zappaphile like Isaac hasn't heard it is mindblowing.

I somewhat see what yall are saying, but he's still young, and there's no need to plow through the whole catalogue instantaneously, that's all there is, I'm still a few shy, and in no current rush to remedy that, it's going to be a sad world when there's no new frank zappa produced albums for me to hear.

Specifically, I stated that I had just bought the CD. You misinterpreted it as "I just got the CD", or that I have "just heard the CD." In fact, I did hear the album a few years ago, I just haven't gotten around to purchasing it.

First of all, I don't live in an area where Zappa albums are easy to get, and it's hard to find certain albums online at a good price. Also, I do not consider any album in Zappa's catalog to be more essential from another. They're all essential, so there's no point in making a fuss over specific albums.

Secondly, although I may not have heard all of the official albums, I have heard a majority of the songs through concert tapes and such. I just haven't had the time or the money to efficiently sit down and buy every item in the catalog.

Now, try to slow down on the crack for a minute and read this phrase carefully: I need some of my money for other things. I think owning 75% of the material released before FZ's death (not to mention the total amount of Z-music that I've heard in the past) is enough for me to call myself an authority, don't you?

Now since you wasted your time to start a psychotic thread like this, why don't you head on back to your padded cell for a few minutes, so I can carry on a normal conversation without being interrupted by your frequent bursts of psychotic stupidity.

And believe me, this will be the last time I ever announce whenever I buy another Zappa album on this message board again. I'm not even going to tell you which albums I have in my collection. You'll just have to guess at how much of them make up the 75% of material Zappa himself released before his death.

And just where did u hear it then??


I honestly can't remember. But if I did, I wouldn't try to explain the circumstances behind hearing such a great album to a psychotic meathead like yourself. Banging my head against a brick wall would accomplish the same thing as attempting to have an intelligent conversation with an idiot like you while you're waiting for the men in white to come take you back to the funny farm. :roll:

Issak is a real douche! You call your self an authority on Frank Zappa? You only own 75% of his shit! And thats BEFORE DEATH! You have a looong way to go before your any kind of authority on this subject...boy!

I do not consider myself an authoritarian, a god, a collector or that I know anything, but...
I have all the vinyl, all the cd's, every bootleg audio and video possible, and nearly all the concerts, and I still don't know shit about the man. If I had worked for him in some capacity near the genious himself, maybe I would know something. Sucks to be the Trenchmouther, who will tell you HE is teh best fan alive, Zappa told him so at teh dinner table. (Hey trendy, check your fucking spelling, a tour is coming, you will bore us, get your name on every fucking topic and post, and make us hate to come here for the one-sided, I am always right attitude with spelling errors in every 3rd word).

So, I go on what I like, what I listen to, and where I was in life when I heard it the first time. The 60's had the original Mothers, the early 70's Flo & Eddie, and then Apostrophe, Overnite Sensation, One Size Fits All. It was amazing to hear the direction it was headed from previous material. It was harder than fuck at that point, 73-75, to find bootlegs with virtually no press I could find selling the stuff, no internet, and a few random record shows, which kept on getting raided due to boots. But I knew something was going on because the music was getting harder, faster, more talented and when Roxy came out, fuck I was blown away. I saw FZ 74 and saw the remnants of the Roxy lineup band, but the same music from it. And I was slayed.

Roxy may or may not be yours and anyones favorite, but in my book, if I had to live on an island, Roxy would be one of the albums to take for sure. I want to say that it holds more prevalence on the top lists for those old enough to have seen him in that era, or grow up buying these albums as they came out. It is better and more dear to me to have gone from #1 to the end by buying and listening to them in the order and time frame they came out. See, hear and absorb his musical progression through time.

BTW, I bought it, and 4 sides of vinyl werent present. 2 sides were the same, so I took it back. #2 had one of the 4 of another artist. #3 had Sinatra or someone. #5, same as #1, and on until #12 when it finally was correct. The guy at the store, who is now a Nashville musician, gladly didnt refeund or exchange, he bought my goofs and gave me another. I found out as little as 2 years ago when I met him again, he took them to said collector shows in big cities and made a fortune off the goofs. Oh well.

Roxy yes, top 5 for me. Concerts from that era, specifically mid 73-late 74, wow. Good shit 78-82 and 88, but I keep going back to roxy era.

There are some people who still think Laurel & Hardy were the funniest duo ever. They would have stood no chance if Isaac & jaypfunk had been around.

Average! No way. IMO some of the best Zappa ever. Just listening to "Dont you ever wash that thing?" is an olympic event. Couldnt imagine trying to play the damn thing.
