To have sat in the same room with him
when he was composing at the piano.

Or being there at the recording of Zoot Allures, the title track.

A better book in this vein is "Why I Am Not a Muslim" by Ibn Warraq. I keep it near "Why I Am Not a Christian" by Bertrand Russell.

I find it quite interesting and confusing that a book critical of a religion is being used as evidence in this "religious freedom" suit.

Perhaps freedom to be critical of or to have no religion is included in the concept of freedom of religion. I think those two ideas are.

I agree with you that the book supports the idea of freedom of religion. However, if that is the case, that particular book would not support the argument that the plaintiff is trying to make.

The original jam with FZ, Jack Bruce, Jim Gordon (and Tony Duran, if his contribution wasn't an overdub) from which Apostrophe' was constructed.

Please, no more book reports! Paragraphs are boring.

back to the impossible dream...

All Beatles material (and all variants) from the 1988 tour gets released offically with all the quality one would expect.

How's THAT for impossible!

A world of peace and happiness, FZ having a few more years, and the FZ guitar solo after 'Shop Talk' from the 1969/1970 Acetate/test pressing for disc 1 off the History and Collected Improvisations-from the original tape source.

The whole concert..why not, which ever one it is.
