Classic thirty four - 's good


GREAT googly moogly!
The prolific Frank Zappa's back catalogue can seem a little daunting to the uninitiated - after all, there's at least 60 studio albums to work through.
But if you'd like a place to start, then Apostrophe, his most commercially successful venture, is the best place to start, full stop.
It has all the hallmarks of classic Zappa - not least some of highest standards of funky classic rock set to tape, played by virtuosos including Cream bassist Jack Bruce.
And on the first half of the album - side A in old money - Zappa's renowned creative comic nonsense is showcased in an absurd yet brilliant 'concept album' narrative spanning six tracks.
So I urge you, pick up Apostrophe and do the funky Alfonso - you won't regret it.
