Someone has already posted something about the strange FZ DVD on sale at Baltcd.com. That's not all: did you pay attention to the CDs? Some are strange. "Hot Rats" and "Lumpy Gravy" on the same CD!? Very strange. The Zappa Patio doesn't mention them. At first I thought they had purchased a stock of old EMI CDs, but no, it can't be the case. So, where do these CDs come from? Any ideas, thoughts?<br><br>http://baltcd.com

WOW!<br><br>   These are those Russian Cd Bootlegs!(At least I think they are bootleg?)<br><br>    There are Hendrix Cds,and all sorts of weird two for one CDs showing up from over there.  They are cheap,though.<br><br>     It tempts you to get one just to see how bad they are! Like the old albums they used to sell from Viet Nam in  the cheesy covers pressed on vinyl from hell! HA!<br><br>     There's ne address for this place on the web-site! Hmmm...pretty spooky,huh?

I don't know if this is the legal cd (it looks like a normal Guitar) or a bogus one but the tracklisting looks very suspicious....<br><br>The couplings are also pretty ridiculous.<br><br>[/quote]<br><br>It seems you own the "strange" Guitar. What about the sound quality?<br><br>The couplings are absurd.<br>

I bought a copy of Them Or Us at a Best Buy about 7 years ago. Couldn't wait to get it home and listen to it - I hit play and it was friggin' ROXETTE! Of "Joyride" fame! <br>What kind of sick grevious error was that? Needless to say I went back, they didn't have another copy, so I got YCDTOSA 2 - but I insisted that I listen to it before I took it home....
