I started with Swordfishtrombones, and that one’s still my favourite.16 Shells from a Thirty-Ought Six. w00t!

So many to choose from. Its hard to beat Rain Dogs, but Mule Variations is very good, as is Swordfishtrombones and Bone Machine.

Listen to the song Cold Cold Ground off of Frank’s Wild Years. You won’t regret it!

Mule Variations is my favorite, he is just so weird you gotta love him!

Not answering this question but as an aside, more weird and wonderful albums are the ones by Billy Bob.

I only have Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers and Bastards, but I too would like to hear more.
