???If you go to http://www.deepdiscountcds.com, you can purchase FZ-OZ for $14.56, shipping included.  You have to search Frank Zappa as artist, scroll to the end of his discography, and there it is. It's listead as being on Vaulternative/Caroline Records.  Why hasn't this been posted on the site?  If I were one of the poor bastards that paid $8 for shipping, I'd be a little pissed.

Many European on-line retailers (amazon.co.uk; amazon.de; fnac.fr) already have OZ. Ordering from US still seems to be cheaper. I already did!

Our senior member recalls ordering the Shut up 'n Play yer Guitar set many years ago and not a single rip or glitch.   :'( We feel that Frank was an increadable dude. This kind of thing could demise and ruin some of the most positve, forward moving,  peace bringing ideas of the last century. Or is that the idea? Forget we mentioned it. Who's butt will we see on the MTV music awards in 2003? Oh joy.

Those of us in Europe who paid over $50 for FZ:OZ can now get it from our local retailers for around $27. I have seen it 'in the flesh no kidding'. seems like it's not only 'Life and Love' that can leave you shafted.<br>I just hope we don't all get drafted soon :(

I heard that there they printed around 5,000 copies of FZ:OZ, but sold just 4,000.  So for the 1,000 restant albums, the prices are dumped.  Which is a very sad conclusion.  What will it be by the next album?  Will there only be printed 4,000 (you got it or not-)albums?  What if I'm too late to buy that one?  Do I have a chance to buy it later?  Or is it just like the Residents-albums, whom I can't find or order in any place...

So I read through this thread and am still confused. I went to the site (deep whatever) and its 29 bucks. Was it ever almost half that anywhere?

I got mine today at about 3:45 PM EST. Still copying it to my PC, but I hope it lives up to the hype! I didn't think the packaging would be so slim, but I hope the way it is doesn't damage the physical disc (I'm very paranoid when it comes to caring for my CD's)<br><br>Yay.
