    Strictly Commercial: The Very Best of Frank Zappa

    What a great collection of genius material! I have been listening to this collection for a couple of days now.

    Zappa was fantastic.

    Zappa is one of my favorites.
    That collection is a good sample of some of his work.
    You might try to pick up the Cheep Thrills CD and the Son of Cheep Thrills.
    When they were originally released they were under $8 each, IIRC.
    They are both samplers of different Zappa eras.
    Zappa's 1980s Synclavier era is the only period that I don't listen to very often.

    I'm more interested in Zappa's instrumental work really. I can take or leave the 'strictly commercial' set, but would definately apply the word 'genius' to Frank.
