    Gee! Excluding compilations and archival releases, this is all I have from 1996 in my collection:

    Broken Arrow, Neil Young & Crazy Horse
    Say No More, Charly GarcĂ­a

    Even though it's a collection of rarities, I would like to include the following one because it's one of the last projects Frank put together in his lifetime, and because it's one of my favorite releases ever:

    The Lost Episodes
    , Frank Zappa
