At times FZs Conceptual Continuity is quite obvious, at times it requires some research. In this topic at hand, the topic heading is more-so a statement as opposed to asking a specific question of conceptual continuity. EDIT: For even a casual listener it should be obvious that at times, Conceptual ...

Can't wait to see what the set list will be this time. Is there anything in particular you are looking forward to seeing the band perform? Here's a few that quickly come to mind. March 70' Sharlena- Lost Episodes (Hot Rats Session Arrangement) October 77' Bowling On Charen (aka The Squirm Live Pall...

Here we are, but a few days after the release and there is already questionable, if not downright illegal, streaming of this project. The power to believe in a code of good will, the consumers that not only buy it through legal channels but question, and but also, take a stance against illegal strea...

this is a fantastic release! have we ever been graced by liner notes as thorough and interesting as Ruth's? to any one who'll just rip the music onto your computer, or especially any downloaders out there, you are doing yourself a disservice by not reading Ruth's Notes From The Back Row! well that'...

I've listened to Roxy & Elsewhere tens of thousands of times since I purchased it the day it was first released. That's a heavy listening schedule, considering its upcoming 40th anniversary on the 10th of September will mark day number 14,611 of its existence. I never actually kept literal tabs...

I don't think the ZFT has a "penchant" for repackaging already available stuff although they have done so on occasion - FZPTMOFZ, and the repeat of the 80's remix of WOIIFTM on Lumpy Money (although I like the remix, my 1986 Ryko CD still sounds fine). Finer Moments is an album FZ put tog...

Even if any of the given tracks are from the exact same performance... As was stated at the time the pre-order was announced, this consists of " never-before-released Frank Zappa master recordings from the Roxy Performances of 9 & 10 December 1973". Thankfully you are stating what sho...

I think you need to broaden your horizons. Frank did not "pioneer" overdubs on live material My so called horizons are quite diverse. In speaking of one of the Pioneers of Overdubbing I also have quite a bit of Les Paul's recordings. Just because Frank was not making records with overdubs...

So it looks like five of the tracks - Penguin in Bondage, Village of the Sun, Echidna's Arf, Don't You Ever Wash That Thing and Cheepnis - are songs that were included on the original Roxy album. Given the ZFT penchant for repackaging and reselling previously released material (see Finer Moments, f...

The definitive lounge bar zappa would be America Drinks & Goes Home. It can be heard on Absolutely Free and Mothermania. It goes way beyond the texture of lounge bar music. The production is deep and is well worth listening with ears wide open.. Frank talks about it in The Real Frank Zappa Book.

Some may very well say this comment is deserved for the Wish List area, but as I patiently await Roxy by Proxy I continue to have hopes that Universal Music Group will release some of the back catalogue in the Blu-Ray HIGH FIDELITY PURE AUDIO Format.

I doubt anything after '80 will be on Road Tapes as Frank recorded all those shows 24 track and higher with UMRK Mobile, BUT on second thought there may be a few shows that were not recorded pro (I'm sure you guys know of a few for certain) and only exist as "guerilla" recordings that the...

Official Release 100 - Frank Zappa The Ritz, New York, 17 Nov. 1981 .....
Dare I suggest the prequel to the first installment of a Road Video Series.
That's right, you guessed right, first there was Road Tapes, and but also, .....Road Videos!

Suddenly for every Roxy reason possible it seemed like a friendly thing to let people know that Roxy By Proxy is making it's way through the Camoufalged Polar Vortex Paterns.

Frank had an interst in military weaponry. I had gifted him a copy of Jane's Nuclean Biological and Chemical Warfare Guide. He not only told me that he was amazed by it but spoke publicly on the book. That's not to mean that FZ was pro-war, but things from camouflage to the largest weapons that wen...

I'm not so much interested in a date but more-so interested how many fans continue to stick with pre-order and support the project before it's bootlegged. Joe's Camouflage is a fine example of how quick someone was illegally streaming it. I don't need to single out any individuals here but it's more...

The release of new material is fine. My concern lies in the naming of these things. ZFT have somewhat painted themselves into a corner in terms of naming these releases with words ending with the same three letters. "Camoflage" really? Can't help but think that FZ would steer clear of a t...
