Good news if it's true... I still haven't re-bought most of em a second time yet, so maybe I'll hold off on the current stock and wait for the next batch. I'm still sceptical that they'd do a full fledged multidisc set for each one though. Though I guess Elvis Costello and Pavement stretched the reissues of most of their albums out to 2 discs, so it's not unheard of.


It is suppoped to be a joke...

Laugh now...

was 'freak out!' groundbreaking and influential? of course it was! anyone with a bit of knowledge about the music scene around the mid-to-late 60s would agree. I would put 'freak out' in the top three albums of 1966, together with dylan's 'blonde on blonde' and 'revolver' by the beatles.

and, if you listen to what fz has to say on the mofo 4-cd box, you just might get a hint of how groundbreaking and influential 'freak out' really was:

Interviewer: Well, have you heard the Beatles new, uh...

FZ: I have the new Sgt. Pepper album.

FZ: I'd like to thank them very much for doing a wonderful take-off on Freak Out! during the song about Rita the meter maid. I thought that it was very clever to have people wheezing, huffing and panting in the background with the music still going on.

FZ: Uh, they do know that we exist in Europe. The album sells well in Sweden and, um, in Holland. Not, it doesn't sell as well in, uh, England, but that's mainly the fault of the record company, because when they released it there, they just pressed it and put it on the stand without any concurrent publicity, and you have to have a certain amount of, uh, machinery to get the ball rolling. But it has been what you might call an underground success because, um, my sources inform me that most of the groups over there have a copy and listen to it regularly, faithfully. Eric Burdon from the Animals liked it very well, he performs, uh, several of the songs from the first album with his group. And The Who were interested in "Who Are the Brain Police?" for a single, I was told.

well, my brother bought it in 1968, and we loved it. and, since it apparently sold well (according to fz), a lot of other swedes liked it too.

http://www.gandsmusic.com/UMRK.htm but don't expect a lower price.
Prepare to wait for months or even years on eBay or Amazon if you want to pay less.
Maybe it will be available in the stores someday.

OK, sticking to the subject at hand, is it possible that a 40th Anniversary Double-disc set for Absolutely Free is actually pending?? Something including outtakes, alternate mixes, alternate takes, demos (like stuff off Mothermania), etc, etc...??

I wouldn't expect as lavish a package as MOFO (SUCH a beautiful, unique, and bitchin' presentation, I gotta say!), but I would absolutely LOVE a Double-disc set with all of the above included.

What Zappaphile wouldn't??

C'mon, whaddayasay Gail, ZFT ... is this still a possibility?? In the works??

Looking forward, thanks for listening.

Maybe an Absolutely Free DVD-A but I don't think there's so much interesting stuff from that album.
But 2009 ... Hot Rats ... Hot Rats Box .... :lol:

Well, Hot Rats -- That would be a sweet one, for sure -- ANY outtakes, or alternate versions or mixes, would contribute to an excellent package for that one! If you compare the original album (I got the OM version, as well as an original Bizarre release -- which both seem to be identical mixes) to the RYKO CD, the mixes are clearly different, on at least 5 of the 6 tracks.

Anyway, I agree, TM -- Hot Rats deserves the Deluxe Edition treatment, when the time is right.

MEANwhile, how about a double-disc AF...

I hope they're able to do something with 200 Motels at long last by its 40th anniversary.

Goddam MGM.

If they decide to give all albums this treatment then I can't wait for Uncle Meat!

The amusement factor (for me) is in reading the reactions to the last line of the "press release" and the reactions to the folks reacting vehemently.
The original http://tinyurl.com/384h9d in news:alt.fan.frank-zappa and the reaction in the zappa forum http://tinyurl.com/ytsq3v (scroll down to the 2004 posts).

On a serious note - perhaps it's true that there isn't enough material for a 4-disc MOAF, but wouldn't a 2 disc version with a Garrick show as the bonus, be good enough?

I understand the motivation behind MOFO because it was the first. Quite frankly, from here on in I'd rather that remixes and archival material were released separately.

the mix on freak out CD is amazing. I think few of his albums sound at their best on cd. current technology could give us a clearer look into the space between the notes.

I agree with Poly...Frank himself said there wasn't any material from the Garrick, the whole deal about the Wally Heider truck that Verve nixed. But there has to be unedited pieces from AF, WOIIFTM and LG that could go on one multi-disc set.

I hate to be such a follower, but Crudblud has my vote on the next expanded release for which UMRK should have additional material in the can, UM. The original tapes that were sped up in Dog Breath, rehearsals of the harpsichord pieces, more outtakes from the London shows or the King Kong sections, all would be great to examine in detail.

YESYESYES!!
i got my pkg...at first it wouldn't play on my mac so i was convinced i'd never view it on my regular dvd...i put it in and voila!
i was mesmerized from the moment the zappateers logo appeared across the screen!
the fact that part 3 was entirely your footage from the stage still blows me away!
the fact that we spent the finale on stage still blows me away...like unruly schoolchildren andre' called us...
thanks for spending the time to get it and send it to me...i love it and it was like being there all over again 8) ...well almost :wink:
:D :D
