dat zappa and a little more

early works from Frank Zappa:

"the Duke of Prunes"

"Amnesia Vivace"

"Igor's Boogie"

"Duke of Prunes" might be the easiest to listen to; "Amnesia Vivace" and "Igor's Boogie" are a little more "Avant Garde" (at least in the context of Zappa's music) than "Duke of Prunes" and might be harder to listen to, but they are definitely still worth a listen, and who knows? you might find some music you like that you never know you liked until now

also contains a large selection of free mp3s on there if you are interested in them; I managed to find the first movement of an early 1950's Chicago Symphony Orchestra performance of Richard Strauss's multimovement tone poem "Ein Heldenleben," conducted by Fritz Reiner, considered by many to be one of the finest performances of it, but it was taken down; if you still want to liste, here is a 1986 performance of it by the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Seiji Ozawa, and also considered to be one of the finest performances of it by many-
