I watched a bunch of Sofa covers so then Youtube started offering me Zappa covers. This was pretty good. Not the Zappa tempo in many cases but most of the melody is there and some really good solutions

here you can see Robinski better with Idiot Bastard Son

Thanks for the link Tero , this is an amazing clip , I love FZ played on acoustic guitar.
I have a cd by Duo Sonare , two classical acoustic guitarists and they play four tracks by FZ -
Igor's Boogie
Oh No!
Idiot Bastard Son
Uncle Meat
all performed to perfection .

Will look that up. I have only one track on CD, the Michael Hedges one. It’s a good artangement overall, but lacks something at the very beginning.

My only other worthwhile ones, not on guitar, are by Reinecke Trio and Ensemble Ambrosius .

You can never have too many Sofas.

Love the Ambrosius cover album, really an astonishing read, and I love what Ed Palermo does, but my favorite will always be The Persuasions album. Really one of a kind. Their Lumpy Gravy alone is a must hear.
