I found a copy of Lumpy Gravy at my local record store for $35 (ca) in what appears to be audiophile condition (Ex/Nm). Is this a good deal or should I pass.

Btw hello I'm new here, i'm an eighteen year old Frank Zappa Fanatic so far I own Live @ Filmore and Tinseltown Rebellion.

That's a good price. I've seen one for 40.00 that was mint.

Near mint :shock: :shock: :shock:
I believe it when I see it.
$35 is a lot, but if it is really near mint, I would definitely buy it.
Actually I would not have taken the chance that someone else buys it.

Welcome lad

Welcome - nice to have some youngsters aboard

If you want a good cross-section of Zappa's work get Läther it has all of the great man's styles and you can take it from there

That said, One Size Fits All is a good next step too






From a 60plus Frank Zappa fan...

See, us old folks remember coming home with each new LP. Apostrophe sounded so good I went out to drag all my buddies to my house to hear it - since it mentioned yellow snow and creepy priests that record was a hit :)

In my country we have 3 national releases: Freak Out!, WOIIFTM and Uncle Meat. I remember getting Uncle Meat by random choice (at that moment I had only Apostrophe/Overnite together in one cd, OSFA, Hot Rats and Chunga's Revenge. Boy I was scared. :mrgreen: I thought "What the fuck was Zappa doing? That's too weird for me." and turned it of after The Legend Of The Golden Arches. A week later I decided to try again. Still too complex for my little teenage brain, but I liked it a little bit. It was on my cd case for 2 or 3 months after I decided to listen to it again. It blew me away and still one of my favourite albums.

Well, I have that with Primus, I got to buy Antipop, Animals, Zingers, Naugahyde and now Wonka on the day of release. 'Course, Primus is not touring Europe every year so I don't have that...

Did you buy the LP to try to win the Golden Vinyl?! I just finished listening to the album this morning. Quite excellent.

Still need to get round to listening to their new release.

OT: I wonder if Half Life did ever buy the record.

I started and stopped with Sailing the Seas of Cheese.
I like some of the stuff from the live one. I've tried going back.
Just... too intentionally novelty.

No. No one does. And it doesn't matter.
What matters is what rocks YOU.

That is the prize.

That might be a bit too strong but they've been a BB favourite for years, owing to their humour, their virtuosity and Les's persona.
