Ha, that's funny and still bad to the bone. Franks bone that is, glad he made it home. I forgot which MOI member said they thought he was dead at the time. Could have been Howard or Mark. I think they were they closest at the time. I could be wrong, it's not like that hasn't happened before! :roll: :mrgreen:

That sounds right, they all thought he was dead. Thanks pbuzby. 8)

The release of new material is fine. My concern lies in the naming of these things. ZFT have somewhat painted themselves into a corner in terms of naming these releases with words ending with the same three letters. "Camoflage" really? Can't help but think that FZ would steer clear of a title that had even the slightest hint of anything military sounding. Just call 'em Joe's Picks Vol. 1-___ Probably too late for them to change horses in mid-stream however. :wink:

Got my Camo today. Best Joe's yet.

As a graphic designer, I enjoyed the coloured cherry on Franks smoke on the pic in the booklet.

If I had to stack this one against the other Joe's - Menage is still my favorite.

I think the Corsaga Series is working out quite well. Can't see why they would be painted into a corner. When I look at all the words that ryme with garage, place that conceptual continuity with all factors that exist in the Corsaga Series, history shows that things are moving forward. Someone mentioned a Box Set with the name Joe's Barrage. Not that I expect a box set with 6 Full CDs of new material, but I think a Joe's Barrage box set is possible at some point. I beleive there are now 5 tittles in the Corsaga Sereis, Maybe when they get to 6 tittles a Joe's Barrage Box Set could be a numbered collector item, with some additional artwork in a box set would be of interest. The Box Set could have the first 6 tittles in a box with some extra vault remnant stuff in it. I would like to see a video documentary included in the box set, with Joe Travers & Gail Zappa listening to some Corsaga Sereis masters and talking about the series. Since fans are always itching of what's to come, maybe they could have a little tasting of what's possibly to come in a future Corsaga peoject. Maybe something anywhere from the 7th to 12th installment of the sereis. It's always nice to have a little nugget that is decades ahead of it's time.

Nor did I ever get the impression that FZ had ever omitted song or project titles with a military slant to it. While your waiting for your food to arrive I would suggest you investigate Ancient Armaments. I'm not sure what fallout particles appear on the film you've been watching, but that title goes way beyond so-called "FZ would steer clear of a title that had even the slightest hint of anything military sounding"., and but also, Frank had considered calling his first Guitar Sereis, the Shut Up Trio ...., "Think Tank", that term has some history in the war mongereing domain. Who knows maybe FZ was thinking along the lines of Music Not War.

Frank had an interst in military weaponry. I had gifted him a copy of Jane's Nuclean Biological and Chemical Warfare Guide. He not only told me that he was amazed by it but spoke publicly on the book. That's not to mean that FZ was pro-war, but things from camouflage to the largest weapons that went boom sparked his interest.

Then why even mention it?
They could call it Joe's pickle farm and cannery for all I care. It's all about the music. FZ has plenty of stupid titles. We are used to that.

Don't forget about Road Tapes.

next: Joe's Collage #1(1960's),#2(1970's) and #3(1980's). Or they could mix it up more like the YCDTOSA volumes.

I do want Joe to keep 'em coming. But really, I hate this one. I would have left it on the shelf and worked on some other vault gem.

I was lucky to have a number of opportunities to meet up and talk with Frank between 1981 and 1993. As far as talking with fans in NYC, surely Frank was more familiar with some of the Canarsie Contingent but our conversations were fun and sometimes N'Lightening. I first met and spoke with FZ at the Palladium, April 1981, it was after a cocnert of Edgar Varese music. The times that I got a chance to speak with Frank were at Classical/Rock shows, TV/Radio programs and public promotional events. Sometimes I was lucky to get a backstage pass but more times than not it was just being in the right place at the right time. Not sure if any conversations we had will be part of the Corsaga series but in repsect to that topic I'll keep the details of these encounters in other topics at this domain. Some of the related folklore may stil be up here. Have a nice day.

Cool... I got to meet FZ twice backstage once in Portland Oregon in 1975 where it was a quick tip of the hat and also in 1984 at the County Bowl in Santa Barbara where I was able to speak with John Smothers and asked if I could say hello to FZ and John laughed and I turned around and FZ had just heard all I said ! He grinned and I was thrilled !
