Frank Zappa, easily one of my favorite guitarists of all time, was nothing if not unbelievably and outrageously prolific. As you can see, I have just about all of his releases (all the major releases) apart from the posthumous “let’s make a quick buck and milk the public for every penny they have” cheap compilations and endless (and repetitive) live recordings being dished out every year since his untimely death.
