Wow. I just listened to the whole thing again. This thing sounds so dated and is boring as fuck. I'll more than likely never listen to it again. Can't say that I am at all surprised that you feel this way. Seeing you walk away from your seat during ZPZs performance of Status Back Baby was a thought...

I agree. But you guys are wrong trying to convince the non-syncavlier lovers that they are going to like this. I'm puzzled as to why anyone would need to stand up on the pulpit and convince anyone of the mere fact that FZs Synclavier was nothing short of the finest digital orchestra of it's time. F...

Yep. Just shut up and play your CD. Put your finger on the button. Don't say nothin'. No matter how bad it is, it's good. No matter how good it is, it's no better, or worse, than every other piece of music he performed. It's all one big performance piece, and can only be treated as one song. So kee...

Last comment I am going to make here. In my deepest sincerity I am having a Yogurt craving, but there is definitively headroom differences in Analogue to Digital transfers that use a high end AD/DA converter such as the Meitner Mark II A/D converter as compared to when analogue to digital transfers ...

Its stupid to think that the headroom of an analog track changes when dubbed to digital. You are clearly missing the point. Headroom on Digital Transfers in 2015 is different than when digital transfer technology first was being done. I am not saying there is an improvement in the original analogue...

I'd correct your errors, but I'd have to rewrite the majority of the fucking post. Besides, I've tried in the past and it hasn't helped. No need to correct anything...

A little surprising that a recording made nearly 20 years after Frank's passing will be Official Release #101 though. I'm surprised that a publisher such as yourself is not making mention that at one point in the early 90s Frank had been planning a live production of the 200 Motels Suites material....

^ No OSFA in it's entirety? ^ Giving consideration to the following FZ never played there. The ZPZ band played 2 nights. They played OSFA in it's entirety the previous night.

For anyone wondering about Dweezil Zappa's Fretboard Freedom. Pointedly how it is used in live performance. Tonight's show at the House of Blues, Dallas Texas has some fine examples. One example is DZs 2nd guitar solo in The Grand Wazoo. Dweezl instructs the band and it develops into a Fretboard Fre...

DZ doesn't need an apologist for him. . You've clearly lost something in translation. In no way, shape or form am I appologizing about anything. Having just watched the House of Blues show I remain steadfast that Zappa Plays Zappa performs the music better. In no way do I think every person on God'...

hmm what seems to be restricting his fretboard freedom? Dweezil himself said that he was still learning his parts for Sinister II. Because the tune is so awesome they were going to play it without the composed guitar parts anyways. Not being critical or negative. Just looking forward to it being th...

hmm what seems to be restricting his fretboard freedom? Having seen two live shows I have yet to notice any such restriction to Dweezil's Fretboard Freedom. Nowhere in the composers design did it ever state that Dweezil is missing anyhing. Could Dweezil at some point perform some of the written gui...

Is that guy kidding or what? In regards to conceptual continuity with Ancient Aliens, I would have assumed you were well rehearsed in these matters. To take things a bit further back, during the 71 tour The Mothers were performing the Divan Suite. The concepts within Divan show a clear and concise ...

The setlist reminds us that We Are Not Alone. In the part where they have introduced Sinister Footwear, for my ears, that further adds to the Ancient Aliens aspect of the material. I don't know as of yet what Dweezil is doing with the solo section, but I am sure he will do something amazing,... in t...

I should have asked Joe at the Yogurt show. The vibe was too thick to think about anything but the moment, that night. I've said this before but I rarely if ever ask Joe about what he's been working on in the vault. I like surprises! The vault, ....these FZ, GZ, DZ, and JT productions, they certain...
