It would be difficult to recall all of it. I started somewhere around Live in New York (maybe 1977??). I watched/listened to some old Mothers stuff, such as Beat-Club 1968. And some Live at the Roxy 1973. And, like I say, I was going all over the place and can't remember half of it.

My favorite album of his is One Size Fits All, which I listened to a lot when I was in college in the mid-70s.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Zappa & Mothers were really ahead of the time. Few good works composed in the 70 (Roxy and Elsewhere not included).
Burnt Weeny Sandwich, Freak Out (1st double LP released)

Dammit, Pete in the white unitard, drunk off his ass, throwing a windmill in every third power chord and nailing everything. He's my favorite musical artist of all time.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

And why does @lamarca like it? Because of the guitar, the Gibson SG. Favored by Frank Zappa, though this vid starts with him on a Stratocaster. The next clip shows the SG...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXFxwMAIBYc

The guitars...

  1. Fender Stratocaster

  2. Gibson SG

  3. Gibson SG

  4. Fender Stratocaster

  5. Gibson Les Paul

  6. Fender Stratocaster

The Fender SG Standard, $1500 plus tax USD delivered (in the US)...

Did Fender and Gibson copulate or is this some muso/guitar-modder joke that's gone over my head?
I honestly cannot tell.

Nice one. Stratocaster and Gibson respectively.
The pedals are important. Fzappa tuning in "Best Band ...." does not sound good for me unlike the wah wah pedal used in the early years

Roy Buchanan doesn't need too much of those gadgets, no one uses the whammy bar like Roy

most of his guitars {not always} were custom made thus you are not listening to same instrument sold  the shop. you forgot to mention Fender Telecaster.

True. Wait, did Zappa use a Telecaster much? I can't recall seeing a video where he's playing one.

BTW, I was half-joking about the SG being why you liked that Who clip, I assume you like it because of how hard it rocks!

Here's a treat, Zappa soloing on an acoustic steel string, Sleep Dirt, the title track...

Released without Zappa's permission and while he was suing Warner Brothers for contract issues...

It was joke.
The Best Unknown Guitarist in the World played a Telecaster. I am not a guitar nerd, no one can play the guitar like Roy Buchanan.
FZappa is far from being my fav guitar player with no wah wah pedal. He has a prodigious memory. There is a song that suddenly stopped on Weasel ripped my flesh album. over 20 later, the song was released with no interruption.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Oh my goodness... The next, new, video served to me from Vimeo's algorithm, a really disturbing techno-dub posted a week ago. I recommend the music and not the video, but to each his or her or whatever's own.
