Stumbled across this on ebay:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Zappalog-The-Fi ... 27e2acd368

Does anyone that has a copy of this know if it's worth looking into? I remember buying a Mojo Magazine Frank Zappa dedicated issue that seems to be in the same vein as this book, so I'm not sure how essential this would be.

this was my very 1st zappa book; totally essential back in the 80s as a source for missing info from zappa albums, a good bootleg list, a bibliography and a great list of musicians/credits ... now it's for collectors, most of the stuff in zappalog can be found on iink or the patio, zappa books etc.


that ebay item is a 2nd edition, looks in decent shape, definitely worth 99ยข + 4 bucks shipping

Criteria for defining level of ZAPPA essentialnessity:

Q1: Does the item have the words: Frank Zappa in, on or around it?

If the answer to Q1 is Yes! Then the item IS, I repeat IS essential to the completionist.

If the answer to Q1 is No! Then the item is NOT essential, and can be thrown away, or given to your little brother.

It's basically just a discography. It's from 1982, so it's very outdated. It was extremely cool to have back in the day, but there's much more complete, more up-to-date, and better illustrated info around on the internet today. It is worth a couple of bucks just for fun.
