Strictly Genteel is a compilation album by Frank Zappa. It focuses more on Zappa's "classical" and "serious" compositions, and as such is something of a companion to the previous Rykodisc-produced compilation, Strictly Commercial, which focused more on "rock" songs with vocals. It was released in 1997.

Famous quotes containing the words strictly and/or genteel:
“Thoroughly to unfold the labyrinths of the human mind is an arduous task.... In order to dive into those recesses and lay them open to the reader in a striking and intelligible manner, tis necessary to assume a certain freedom in writing, not strictly perhaps within the limits prescribed by rules.”
—Sarah Fielding (17101768)
“Look at your [English] ladies of qualityare they not forever parting with their husbandsforfeiting their reputationsand is their life aught but dissipation? In common genteel life, indeed, you may now and then meet with very fine girlswho have politeness, sense and conversationbut these are fewand then look at your trademens daughterswhat are they?poor creatures indeed! all pertness, imitation and folly.”
—Frances Burney (17521840)
