Cecil Taylor - "Conquistador"

This one sounds like a high school jazz band practicing in the garage. I know this record has quite a bit of acclaim, but to my ears it's quite possibly the worst record ever recorded. To each his own...

It's a tossup between Mr Bungle - California, and Colin Stetson - New History Warfare vol II Judges

Classical purists would think this was heresy, but it just makes me laugh. A bit like if the Sex Pistols did a prog rock album.

By far this is it for me. And it actually is above my expectations as I listened to this for months...The track " It Hasn't Happened Yet" is perfectly produced and sounds rich and smooth, "Tht's Me Trying" is great just as "What Have you done" - not your typical album, and Shatner speaks, but does not sing - still, very entertaining...and weird !

Does anybody else recall Roger Waters' "Music from the Body"?


I picked this up a couple of years ago, and only managed to listen for about 5 minutes.

Just too weird for my liking...............

John Lennon, Yoko Ono : Unfinished Music No 2 : Life with the Lions

It seemed like a rare find at the time, so I bought it. I gave up on Lennon after that and wished Ono had died on that hospital bed. Quickly sold it to a friend; probably worth some dollars today.

that brings back memories! I spent 1973 listening to Zappa, still love his 'live at the fillmore east' in which he sings opera with backup from flo and eddie from the Turtles!

my recommendations

Punk Rock Christmas - compilation with classics like "here comes santa's pussy"
Zabriski Point - soundtrack with patti page, roscoe slocum and pink floyd/grateful dead
Roger Ruskin Spear - Electric Shocks
vivian Stanshall - men opening umbrellas....actually anything by him, a true genius....

and this classic canadian LP worth it for the MC and patrons comments alone!

Safe to say for a large percentage of rock music fans Zappa ranks up there.

I remember in the 80's leafing through the record store alphabetical displays looking for LP's to buy, and if I was unable to find something there was always the last chance...Frank Zappa.

Bought Sheik Yerbouti when it was current. Never bought any others but heard plenty. Weasels Ripped My Flesh, Joe's Garage, so many others. The stuff was just a bit too dirty and i always felt like I needed a shower after listening. But, oh boy were they some top shelf musicians!

Well, allow me to retort - Shatner's version of Pulps' Common People with Joe Jackson on blistering vocal chorus is near worth the price of admission. It turns this pop confectionery treat into an all-out assault with Shatner delivering his lines like its bloody Hamlet.
