JDIZZY's 365 # 65: Peaches En Regalia

Peaches En Regalia - Frank Zappa (1970)

Go ahead, I dare you to call this modern master a one-trick pony! For every one of these, there are one of these. For every sophomoric joke, there is a work of raw beauty. Yes, he was tasteless, but he was also refined. He was the most complicated, brilliant and hilarious person to ever grace pop. He will never have an equal, and he probably shouldn't. The world is not ready for another Frank.
In a career of high points, this instrumental powerhouse stands out. I dare you to find another work this zany, awe-inspiring or chill-inducing. This is a genius at the height of his powers. However, what's great about Zappa is that not even his most rabid fans can say they have heard everything the man did. You could fill an entire 365 of his pieces and still leave out another 365 just as brilliant. So, explore, discover and treasure..... but first.......Let your face be melted by the Grand Wazoo's finest moment!
