You're right, but I guess it is capitalizing (in a good sense) on the famous verse from Smoke on the Water...

Wasn't there something about the Muthers, then?

Oh well, at least the What's New page looks different. Maybe Gail realized that I gotta pay down my American Express card and she was giving me extra time to be prepared :shock:

It's all of the Mothers Of Invention original recordings in pristine lossless sound available for download as a box set (with book and glorious packaging) or, if you want, you can buy each record individually.

Is my guess.

Today's mail...

"Hello Boys & Girls,

About 10 Years Ago, shortly after Al Gore invented the internet, we here at UMRK, where we feel it is our duty . decided to announce plans for the Roxy Performances to be unleashed at last on a wholly suspecting public and others besides. What We Knew Then compared to What We Know Now about what is possible is something completely different. I could romanticize and say that over here at the Other Side of the Miracle of Time & Space there is nothing stopping us but the Movie Monster. Every Monster Movie has at least one. Our Movie Monster is THE BUDGET.

Because of the condition the condition was in - no synch, no idea what was what, no idea of the actual coverage, no idea of the quality; all the et ceterae that caused FZ to abandon the project completely - it took all this time (if you include all the other priorities and distractions) to get to this point, so near and yet so far: All of the footage has now been transferred on a best light basis into HD and all camera angles have been "synched" by eye and heart and hand and edit to the original Nagra tapes. We now need to identify all usable camera angles and begin the actual edit. Still, we have miles to go in order to bring the best of the possibilities to a screen near you. And we need your help.

We still have a few wrinkles but our irons are hot and the details of our plan for the next Official Release is bundled in a unique opportunity to participate in a special, social experiment designed to open lots of doors for all Artists and their fans everywhere. Participate and You'll be First. First with your own copy of a Soundtrack to The Roxy Performances. First with your name credited in The Roxy Performances, The Movie. And there are more Firsts. Stay Tuned.

But first, a word from our sponsors. We'll be back with all the relevant details right after the other Mothers' Day.

Thank you for your kind attention to this matter.

gz"

Can anyone decode the message?

- "And we need your help" - What is the thing the fans should help in?
- "the other Mothers day" - is it now or is it next year?...

Thank you for the transcript, doug -

Yepp, why not? Great to hear it's all on HD digital and, above all, usable -- Now Zappas, be on your toes and don't lose your interest, bondage- and bebop-wise. 8)

Just got this email too! Sweet!

The "participate" bit probably has something to do with supporting the completion of it. Whether that's financially or through some sort of fan-driven promotional campaign, etc., I guess we'll find out soon.

And by stating, "We'll be back with all the relevant details right after the other Mothers' Day", I think Gail means by early next week.

By the sound of it, The Roxy Performances will probably be released by the end of this year...

The O.S.T. will help funding the editing jobs to be done on the Roxy movie.
Some kind of Kickstarter-like sponsoring program will help funding the Roxy movie more substantially.
Some kind of pre-order frenzy is to spark it off even further.
As far as I understand.

Hm... so the Big Mothers Day Announcement was:

"We'll let you know sometimes when something happens"

Possibly Mother's Day means this Sunday, and on Monday they release another announcement about "The Performances", but don't expect delivery for some time since they're still working on it....that's this reporter's opinion. But I did like seeing the title in my email box. :mrgreen:

Maybe the soundtrack is ready to pre-order - at a price that includes a donation to the Zappa Roxy HD Fund?

Good guess. Next audio release could be a multi-disc soundtrack, with the promise of the movie at some indefinite time (when there's enough money to complete it) in de futchum. And if you're willing to pay, you'll get your name in there somewhere. Mmm, tempting...
