A copy of the email I just sent to VaultMeister:<br>~~~~~~~<br><br>I hope I am writing to the right person.<br>I have just purchased "Uncle Meat" ... or at least I<br>thought I had...<br><br>I have been very excited to purchase and hear a Zappa<br>album I am not yet familiar with. 'Uncle Meat' was a<br>perfect candidate. Times are tough for me, 2 months<br>worth of layoffs this year and mouths to feed,<br>*SPAM* to pay.<br><br>I scrounged up the $18.00 for this CD, went out and<br>bought it, and upon listening to disc 1, I realize<br>that I have just bought "Freak Out" which I am VERY<br>familiar with. <br><br>The label says "Uncle Meat" but the music don't.<br><br>Disc 2 is fine, but to listen to it now would ruin the<br>continuity of the album.<br><br><br>This was my big excitement for the month, and nothing<br>against 'Freak Out', but this is highly disappointing.<br>They only had one copy of this thing, so now what?<br><br>The name of the store, if it matters, is Media Play,<br>here in St. Cloud, Minnesota.<br><br>Is this a rarity, an isolated incident... or a problem<br>with the pressing that you have heard about already?<br><br>Either way, I really want to fix this, and hear this<br>album.<br><br>By the way, Many Thanks to FZ, you and ZFT for all of<br>the great music over the years...<br><br>If you ARE the wrong person, can you please forward<br>this to the right one?<br><br>Thanks,<br><br><br><br>=====<br>Alan/ Tangento<br>www.tangento.net<br><br>~~~~~~~<br><br>Has anyone else encountered this kind of weird screw-up?<br><br> ???

Sounds like a simple mistake.......return it....explain why and get a different copy or have them order one for you. Besides...Ryko distributes Uncle Meat now....not the Zappa family or the Vaultmeister. Go back to Media Play.

I started to realize some of this after the fact, however If this thing could be considered a rarity, I would like to keep it.<br>It was the only copy there, so I figure worst case, I buy another from Ryco and keep this for the hell of it.<br><br>Screw the *SPAM*!<br><br>[move] ;D[/move]

<---- Opens a pack of 6-for-a-buck 'Top Ramen'...<br><br>I would never victimize some poor loser that way! <br>How dare you...<br><br><---- Opens new window, and brings up eBay...<br><br><br> ::)<br>
