    Somebody at Hoffman posted about it earlier but then zappa.com took down the link.

    Assuming this will actually happen this is clearly something I need to buy.
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    Now listed on Amazon with an August 30 release date. Can't wait!

    And what's this I hear about a Hot Rats 50th anniversary deluxe release? That would also be a must-have!

    Ok, long-time Zappa avoider here seeking recommendations. His discography is beyond huge so guide me to something that will impress me. Here’s my criteria:
    I don’t like brass.
    I don’t like Frank’s goofy ‘ironic’ voice.
    I like stuff like Occam’s Razor.
    I like most modern classical.
    I have Hot Rats and One Size Fits All, from which I enjoy the non-brass and non-goofy voice tracks, about 50% of the records.

    So, will I enjoy the collection being discussed in this thread? If so, what else. If not, what?

    Indeedy. Hoping they track down the master tape for "Bognor Regis" (only known to exist from an acetate).

    Waka has quite a bit of brass soloing. I'd go with Sleep Dirt instead. The 2012 all instrumental edition. London Symphony is a great double set if you like modern orchestral.

    As far as classical stuff goes, I think the Yellow Shark is his best realized work.

    True. I was paying closer attention to my lunch than my screen, I guess. 3 fewer musicians for Teddy V. to dislike.

    If it isn't Krautrock, it's krap.

    Waka Jawaka and Grand Wazoo (come on, look at the cover!) will not do.

    I would suggest Burnt Weeny Sandwich.

    "Revised Music for Low-Budget Symphony Orchestra" is on Spotify. Sounds great, as I expected.
