Man, I'm ready to pop my cork reading this thread!<br><br>Of all the Zappa stuff that I could get my hands on, rehearsal recordings are the things that I'm most interested in. Real-time miniature documentaries of "The birthing process." I had no idea that this stuff was out there, especially in these quantities. I knew they HAD to exist. <br><br>Feeling....depressed...now.<br>Feeling....big....unfulfilled....hole....in my life.<br>Must...get....copies.<br>But...How? Where?<br>Image<br>AHHHHHHHHHH!

If she's gone anywhere with music, it would be news to me-- never heard of her before now.
