Hello, I'm new here and terrible at introducing myself. Well, I am completely insane. There that works. :P

....

........


....Okay, no it doesn't. I'm been listening to Zappa for about a month now, and it was love at first sight. I now have five albums. (Absolutely Free, We're Only In It For The Money, Lumpy Gravy, Fillmore East - June 1971 and The Lost Episodes.) I plan to get every album. Apart from Frank Zappa, I am also a writer. I often listen to Zappa while I'm writing.

hey, good to get a bona-fide, non-spambot real new member

5 albums in a month is a lot to absorb... take a month or so off, listen to zappa radio a bit and go slow

I can absorb things VERY fast, and if I don't get more soon I'll go into withdrawal.

Maybe next month I can reduce it to four? :lol:

I've listened to 19 albums (almost all of 'em multiple times as well) in two and a half months and didn't find it too much to absorb.

You got a lifetime of good times to go - I have every thing he ever released and been collecting it for 39 years and am still discovering new things

Yeah, I had everything he'd ever made (up to about the first 40 albums) when I was away from home for an extended period and someone sold off my collection! Aargh! All the way back to Freak Out, We're Only in it for the Money with all the cut-outs, etc. I've been crying ever since.

I've managed to replace it all digitally but it is not the same.

Ironically, an album with Nullis Precii (No Commercial Potential) is selling for over $100. at Bleecker Bob's.

I agree about digital. The pure joy of opening an LP and the fresh smell of the thing and all the stuff you used to get from an LP (inserts, posters, etc.,). Those little packages that CDs come in, let alone downloading with nothing extra.

But downloaders love to get their music with nothing, I am just a curmudgeon.

Correction - 20 albums in two and a half months. But now I am gonna take a short break from buying and listening to any other ones.

Nothing curmudgeonly about that. Gimme an LP or a CD over air (downloads) any day of the week.
