Hey all! Now taking pre-orders for my new book "The Recordings Of Frank Zappa Volume 4 1973-1974: The Hook" at my humble new website http://spbpublishing.webs.com/
. The book is also available at Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/Hook-Recordings-FRANK-ZAPPA-1973-1974/dp/1456355295/ref=sr_1_38?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1291642780&sr=1-38
The book is available in color and B&W variations, and my other books in the Recordings Of FZ series (Hungry Freaks Daddy, Strictly Genteel and Blessed Relief) are at Amazon as well. The other two books feature a "look inside" function that allows you to see what the series is all about.
For those of you who haven't seen it, the books trace the evolution of Frank's music through his recordings--both legit and bootleg. The first half of the books include a thorough discography of official and bootleg releases, while the second half features reviews of all known bootleg recordings 1959-1974 (to date) including transcriptions of stage announcements from (mostly) FZ.
Taken together, the books form a sort of "living biography" of FZ through the only thing that should truly matter: his music.
