If you can find it, 'We're Only in it For the Money' is a much better listen on
vinyl than on CD. Whoever remastered it for CD totally messed it up,
sounds NOTHING like it does on vinyl.


Rocky, the 1986 remix was prepared by Zappa himself. The reason it sounds funny is because he changed the rhythm tracks, adding new drum and bass overdubs performed by Arthur Barrow and Chad Wackerman. The 1995 reissue has the original rhythm tracks, but it still retains much of the censorship from when the album was released on vinyl. The '80s remix of Money is the only completely uncensored issue of the album as of yet.

Then I guess it's a combination of a couple things. One is my disagreeing
with more tinkering and remastering, or whatever, long after the fact,
as Lucas and Spielberg might do with their movies. I'm guessing the
censorship had to do with some sort of content other than differing sound
techniques. Somewhere, maybe in 'The Record Collector's Price Guide', I
read that LPs with the censored version of "Hot Poop" were rarer than
those with the uncensored version, and to be honest, I don't know which
one I have.
The other is, with music in general, I love the 60s/early-to-mid 70s sound,
and hate almost everything 80s, including the way the early ZZ Top that
I loved on vinyl sounds on CD, especially "La Grange". The percussion
sounds too techno-synth and cleaned up, or something.
Thanks for the info.

Hi folks, my name's Jake and I'm a brand new Zappa fan and message board poster. I'm attempting to listen to every single Zappa CD before I die both because I'm extremely curious about the man and his incredibly varied career and also as a way to get my mind off of the '08 Presidential election, which I firmly believe that neither Hillary nor Obama can win. So far, I've listened to 3 (Freak Out!, WOIIFTM and Baby Snakes), which I've quite enjoyed, and I've got 3 more (Hot Rats, Apostrophe' and You Are What You Is) on order. Any suggestions for where I should go from here? I was thinking about going through all of the '60s and early '70s albums first but I'm also very curious about Frank's classical work as well.

Second to marrying my wife as the best decision I ever made in my life. :D

One of my all time favourites has to be Fillmore East. You rarely see it mentioned in this site. I prefer the vinyl version. On the CD too much of Willie the Pimp gets nuked. If you buy 200 Motels be sure to get the CD. The vinyl version must have been produced by the Acme record company. The record wears out far too quickly. No idea why that is.
