All assholes are anal, be fair!

"Yellow Snow" is one of the low points of his career, really. It's like his "Yellow Submarine" or "Maxwell's Silver Hammer".

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

That's like saying "A Winter's Tale" was one of Shakespeare's low points of his career...

I'd start with his most accessible albums: Over-Nite Sensation and Apostrophe (&#39a-hard-days-night-george-10. They are almost a part 1 and 2. Great albums. And for a live taster, either Roxy and Elsewhere or Zappa in New York. For me, his best period is the 70s ('69-'79), but I like it all.

 

What's your take on You Are What You Is? That's the one Zappa album (aside from Strictly Commercial) that I own, and I can still remember years ago my then-girlfriend, the daughter of a Baptist minister, listening to "Dumb All Over" for the first time and her jaw hit the floor. All she could do was mouth "Oh My God"... it was all I could do not to bust out laughing, only because her shocked reaction was priceless.

Not crazy about You Are What You Is. Some good tunes but a lot of ones I don't care for. I'm really not as much a fan of his early 80s stuff...it's hit or miss. The stuff from Joe's Garage and earlier is great, and I love the guitar and live albums from the 80s (Shut Up N Play Yer Guitar, Guitar, the live ones).

 

And yes, Hot Rats would be another great one to start with.
