Frank Zappa


This is the complete list of Frank Zappa albums.  Well, as complete as I can deduce from various references on the 'net and elsewhere anyway.  I make it a discography of 75 albums (with the complete set of Shut Up 'N Play Yer Guitar counting as one, as I bought it, and the same with Joe's Garage).  This includes compilation collections but excludes reissued / repackaged versions of earlier albums.  Those that have hyperlinks are those that I have in my own collection, and clicking on these will take you to the album cover and track list.  I have attempted to put these into some sort of meaningful chronological order.  "Meaningful", as in relating to the date of performance rather than date of release.  For instance, "You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore volume 2" was released in 1988, but is in fact a concert from 1974.   Similar anomalies occur with "Ahead Of Their Time", "FZ:OZ" and many more.  Of course, it is not possible to do this with the many compilations, and these are ordered under the date of release.  Frank Zappa habitually hoarded concert tapes, out-takes, unreleased cuts and such, and these could randomly reappear on albums or compilations some years later.  Hence this "order" is by no means consistent, just some kind of attempt.  Feel free to email me with suggestions and corrections - click on my photo above.
