Really depends where your particular tastes lie. For example, I love all the instrumental craziness but I don't really dig the earlier mothers albums where he did a lot of experimentation with strange voice treatments and things of that ilk.

My recommendation would be either: "Joe's Garage" for a huge range of brilliance with arguably Zappa's most solid line-up.

"Sheik Yerbouti" is pretty easy to listen to and its got some very funny moments (ram it, ram it, ram it, ram it up your poopshoot... wristwatch :laughing: )

"Does Humour Belong in Music" (the album, not the inferior DVD performance). This is an incredible live album showcasing everything that was great about the band: humour, virtuosic playing and brilliant songs. The only problem with this album is Chad Wackerman's bollocks V-Drum kit which sounds like absolute shite, he plays it well though. Everyone should be made to listen to the version of Whippin' Post from this album, its an Allman Brothers song but when you hear Zappa doing it you'll be blown away. Bobby Martin sings and he has the most incredible range, not bad for a camp, honkey sax player wearing a dodgy leotard ;)
