I thought these two would make for a good match up. Who do you like?

Quite easy: two masterpieces (OVER-NITE SENSATION is just not on the same level) vs. three masterpieces. The Giant gets my vote!

Those are my three favorite GGs against great Zappa albums, so not really fair for me. Zappa's best live anyway.

I'm a bigger fan of GG, so easy call for me. But my brother loves Zappa and is lukewarm about GG, so....
Prog fan since 1974.

Hot Rats, Waka/Jawaka, Grand Wazoo would have been a better 3 for me. Giant

OSFA is my favorite Zappa record, and if it was paired with the two albums before it, this would be a hard one to call!

Thankfully, it's easy, as those three GG records are their best IMHO!

No matter what combination of three albums by these two bands, it will always be Zappa for me.

Would have been 'Giant if not for 'Glory. Oh, well, Zappa's being slaughtered here anyway.
