SOUND CHECK.

Frank Zappa/``Strictly Genteel'' and ``Lather''

If you consider yourself a Frank Zappatista (you know who you are), you likely already own some or all of the material found on two new compilations from Rykodisc.

``Strictly Genteel'' contains mostly orchestral tracks from Zappa's long and varied career. The triple-CD ``Lather'' is ostensibly Zappa's original ``Leather'' album from 1977 that languished amid dueling lawsuits and contract obligations until the material was issued on four midperiod albums.

Both packages serve as a fair starting place if you're new to Zappa's genius or merely seeking to replace your tired vinyl. Three stars
