Okay. You have been sentenced. You are to be punished, and your punishment is banishment to a small island. And the only thing you can take with you are FIVE Frank Zappa Cd's. No worries, the island you are being sent to has electricity and a bitch'n stereo system (and LP player too). So, make your top FIVE FZ releases you would take with you.

Here be is mine:

1. Hot Rats. (I can't help myself, GUMBO is blaring as I type this)

2. Make a Jazz Noise Here (I simply think that is the best of the 88 tour.. I know, I may be wrong on that)

3. Burnt Weeny Sandwich ( LOVE THAT SHIITE)

4. Absolutley Free (Overlooked gem)

5. YCDTOSA (May as well get bang for the buck!)

There ya go. It pained me to pair down to 5, but, I am being punished and sent to the island. So, I did it. I was good for me. In the long run, that is.

2) Absolutely Free

3) Lumpy Gravy

5) Everything is healing nicely

Carnaby clothes, I reshaped my nose,
Plastic surgery's best.
To cut down my weight off comes my left leg.
I pass a swimming costume test.

Look out there's a monster coming!

1. Ship Arriving Too Late To Save A Drowning Witch
2. Shut Up 'n' Play Yer Guitar
3. Hot Rats
4. Fillmore East
5. Guitar

though if all the YCDTOSA counts as one I'd have to have that as my no.5 instead.

If we're going for the bang/buck ratio, here's my picks:

1. Old Masters Box 1
2. Old Masters Box 2
3. Old Masters Box 3
5. Lather

I'm saying simply this: the douche is where it's at.

Hmm... only five? Punishment indeed!

I really like zachy's approach to the problem:

This is undoubtedly the most efficient solution possible. Still, to be true to the intended nature of the exercise:
  • Uncle Meat [Old Masters Box 2 LP]
  • The Grand Wazoo
  • Sleep Dirt [DiscReet LP]
  • Civilization Phaze III
  • Lumpy Money
Can I trade? For more FZ, I'll give up the non-essentials — y'know... food... medicine... clothing...

How about bribing the guards — maybe with some old Hendrix LPs?

If all else fails, it's awfully tempting to try to smuggle another 40 or so Zappa titles onto the island — no matter what the cost (gonna ram it... ram it... ram it...)
