I guess most of you already knew this, but i saw an advertisement for it yesterday in the new MOJO Magazine.<br><br>So for those of you who don't know, the Granny's have a new album out...<br><br>I can't remember the title or release-date, but i'm sure you can find all that info somewhere on the WWW.

Alan Thicke: ''Now Frank, for those of us who have seen you as some kind of guru over the years, that's a kind of nihilistic assesment of music. Where's the hope ?''
Frank Zappa: ''Well, there isn't any...''

i saw this in the shop last week - it looks interesing but is it any good ? i wont be  a-buying just yet. in fact, i suspect that the whole chamber orchestra side of FZ was so underdeveloped that even the man himself would have required a long time in rehersal to get it up to his standard - what chance 10 years later ? <br><br>mendelson rediscovers bach - one day perhaps a genius will do the same for fz. i recon der grandmothers aint it.<br><br>mungo

Hey,people,<br><br>    I've bought a LOT of the Grandmother's stuff,and it seems only the cream of the crop of those ol' Mothers are on this thing!  I'd bet it's a good one.<br><br>     If it has Don Preston,and NO Jimmy Carl Black(Sorry Jimmy,ya just don't seem that inspired!),or NO Billy Mundi(who messed-up a show I saw in New York,by being under-practised),...well...then Don and Bunk make the whole thing work most times!<br><br>     I really wanna get this thing!  Where'd ya'all see it for sale? ;D
