Dear Gail,

A question re the dual dedication to Elliott Carter and Pierre Boulez on the back of Feeding the Monkies at Ma Maison: is this dedication directly attributable to Frank, or is this a ZFT addition for this release?

Thank you and best wishes,

Arjun von Caemmerer

No, nor did I claim it to be so.  Any more than I claimed the addition of the 2 tracks to this work attributable to FZ.  The dedication is mine alone (as Executive Producer) for my own admiration for them as Composers and Citizens of the World.  I am grateful for the opportunities I have enjoyed being with them and for their kindnesses toward me and particularly in the case of M. Boulez, in appreciation for his deep regard for Frank Zappa as a fellow traveller.
