Issak is a real douche! You call your self an authority on Frank Zappa? You only own 75% of his shit! And thats BEFORE DEATH! You have a looong way to go before your any kind of authority on this subject...boy!

I do not consider myself an authoritarian, a god, a collector or that I know anything, but...
I have all the vinyl, all the cd's, every bootleg audio and video possible, and nearly all the concerts, and I still don't know shit about the man. If I had worked for him in some capacity near the genious himself, maybe I would know something. Sucks to be the Trenchmouther, who will tell you HE is teh best fan alive, Zappa told him so at teh dinner table. (Hey trendy, check your fucking spelling, a tour is coming, you will bore us, get your name on every fucking topic and post, and make us hate to come here for the one-sided, I am always right attitude with spelling errors in every 3rd word).

So, I go on what I like, what I listen to, and where I was in life when I heard it the first time. The 60's had the original Mothers, the early 70's Flo & Eddie, and then Apostrophe, Overnite Sensation, One Size Fits All. It was amazing to hear the direction it was headed from previous material. It was harder than fuck at that point, 73-75, to find bootlegs with virtually no press I could find selling the stuff, no internet, and a few random record shows, which kept on getting raided due to boots. But I knew something was going on because the music was getting harder, faster, more talented and when Roxy came out, fuck I was blown away. I saw FZ 74 and saw the remnants of the Roxy lineup band, but the same music from it. And I was slayed.

Roxy may or may not be yours and anyones favorite, but in my book, if I had to live on an island, Roxy would be one of the albums to take for sure. I want to say that it holds more prevalence on the top lists for those old enough to have seen him in that era, or grow up buying these albums as they came out. It is better and more dear to me to have gone from #1 to the end by buying and listening to them in the order and time frame they came out. See, hear and absorb his musical progression through time.

BTW, I bought it, and 4 sides of vinyl werent present. 2 sides were the same, so I took it back. #2 had one of the 4 of another artist. #3 had Sinatra or someone. #5, same as #1, and on until #12 when it finally was correct. The guy at the store, who is now a Nashville musician, gladly didnt refeund or exchange, he bought my goofs and gave me another. I found out as little as 2 years ago when I met him again, he took them to said collector shows in big cities and made a fortune off the goofs. Oh well.

Roxy yes, top 5 for me. Concerts from that era, specifically mid 73-late 74, wow. Good shit 78-82 and 88, but I keep going back to roxy era.

There are some people who still think Laurel & Hardy were the funniest duo ever. They would have stood no chance if Isaac & jaypfunk had been around.

Average! No way. IMO some of the best Zappa ever. Just listening to "Dont you ever wash that thing?" is an olympic event. Couldnt imagine trying to play the damn thing.

I remember buying R&E for $5.99 at a record shop that was going out of business in downtown Denver. This was in 1975; it was my first Zappa album.
It was a big deal for me since I normally bought my records used for $2 (at Jerry's and Wax Trax, for those folks reading from Denver).

I wore down a copy from the local library in the late mid-1970s, and finally bought it in London in 77. I swear that the saleslady looked like the girl on the cover. And she knew the album, as she acknowledged my choice saying "Yeah, Cheepnis is so cool - we may have to use nuclear force". I was happy!

Oh, on a different "note", I got this pm a few hours ago (subject line: "You're easily amused, aren't you?")

  1. never cook a dead dog without taking off the best bits for a special treat
  2. dead dog penis shouldn't be wasted on a simple roast
  3. fritata might not be the most exclusive of meals, but in terms of enhancing dead dog cock's delicate flavour, it has no equal
  4. cut the dead dog cock into slices no thinner than 1-cm thick, or they'll overcook & get far too chewy
  5. dead dog's dick needs to be chewy, but not so much that you can't swallow

I seldom take the time to read through threads, especially the ones before I came here, but gotta admit this one is funny as Hell.

Shades of the last week of February this year. Somebody bumps a thread that Isaac doesn't like and then Isaac bumps a whole heap of threads, 24 this time within 45 minutes. It's not pretty.

first copy I bought (in 1974) was around SEK 45.00.

which, today, would be around seven bucks.

for a brand new double album...

What the hell are you talking about?

What am I talking about? Do I know what I'm talking about? Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

No. Very puzzling.

And I still cannot figure out the pm I recived saying (subject line: "You're easily amused, aren't you?")

(Btw: I shall out of principles (as it was a pm) not reveal the person's identity. :D .)
