i am leaving for college at the end of the summer and want all my zappa with me, but i refuse to bring original copies of cds so i am burning copies of all my zappa albums. this will take a long time. i'm thinking of adding bonus tracks to some albums, but i dont have much stuff of good enough recording quality, but, for example, bognor regis is going to be slapped on the end of my hot rats cd. is that a good idea? what other songs should i add to what cds?<br>

[/quote]<br><br><br>you make a good point. good thing i didn't burn hot rats yet. are there enough high-quality-recording tracks out there for a good bonus cd? (i'll still buy the cds they are released on, provided they are released in the future! no worries there.)<br>

Think of the possibilities THAT opens....
