Tinsel Town Rebellion is a double live album released by Frank Zappa in May 1981. The album was conceived by Zappa after he scrapped the planned albums Warts and All and Crush All Boxes, and contains tracks that were intended for those albums. The title track is a satire of the punk rock scene, describing a band that adopts the punk style to get a record deal. The album also contains reworked recordings of older Zappa songs, including Love of My Life, I Ain't Got No Heart, Tell Me You Love Me...

Zoot Allures is the 22nd album by Frank Zappa, released in October 1976 and his only release on the Warner Bros. record label. Due to a lawsuit with his former manager, Herb Cohen, Zappa's recording contract was temporarily reassigned from DiscReet Records to Warner Bros. The album was originally conceptualized as a double LP, but Zappa rearranged, edited, and shortened the track listing to what was eventually released as a single album. The album title is a typical Zappa pun, playing on the ...

Waka/Jawaka (also known as Waka/Jawaka — Hot Rats) is the fourth solo album by Frank Zappa, released in July 1972. The album is the jazz-influenced precursor to The Grand Wazoo (November 1972), and as the front cover indicates, a sequel of sorts to 1969's Hot Rats. According to Zappa, the title 'is something that showed up on a ouija board at one time.' See below for more information. Zappa – Waka/Jawaka(CD) Fusion and orchestral prog rock determine Waka/Jawaka in equal parts. The long playe...

Chunga's Revenge is the third solo album by Frank Zappa, released on 23 October 1970. Zappa's first effort of the 1970s marked the first appearance of former Turtles members Flo & Eddie on a Zappa record, and signalled the dawn of a controversial epoch in Zappa's history. Chunga's Revenge represents a shift from both the satirical political commentary of his 1960s work with The Mothers of Invention, and the jazz fusion of Hot Rats. See below for full description.

The Grand Wazoo is a studio album by Frank Zappa and the Mothers, released in November 1972. It was written and recorded during Zappa's period of convalescence after being assaulted in December 1971 in London. Along with its predecessor Waka/Jawaka (July 1972), this album represents Zappa's foray into big band music, the logical progression from Hot Rats (1969) (which used a much smaller lineup). This was the last release on Zappa's own Bizarre Records label and is mostly made up of instrumen...

Freak Out! is the debut studio album by the Mothers of Invention, released on 27 June 1966, by Verve Records. Often cited as one of rock music's first concept albums, it is a satirical expression of frontman Frank Zappa's perception of American pop culture and the nascent freak scene of Los Angeles. It was also one of the earliest double albums in rock music, as well as the first two-record debut album. The album was produced by Tom Wilson and features Zappa on vocals and guitar, along with l...

Zappa - Sheik Yerbouti (2015 Reissue) Sheik Yerbouti is as close as Frank Zappa came to chasing after commercial success. It even spawned a minor hit single in Bobby Brown Goes Down, and the disco send- up Dancin’ Fool. If Zappa’s humour appeals to you, then this is probably going to be your favourite Zappa album, being full of (mostly dirty) jokes about Carter-era America. Track Listing: I Have Been in You Flakes Broken Hearts Are for Assholes I'm So Cute Jones Crusher What Ever Happened ...
