I have several hours of Zappa band rehearsal recordings, most fascinating.

Has anyone compiled a list of what rehearsals are known to circulate and any info about them?

I'd like to get my collection tidied up a bit and in order.

Would love a ZFT serious of rehearsals release.

I have 2 CD's worth of UMRK rehearsals from 1980, pretty poor sound-quality, but nonetheless it's really interesting to actually hear Frank ''drill'' his bandmembers and explain certain arrangements and so forth...

As far as i am concerned, the ZFT can release everything they want, whenever they want-----> AFTER they released the ROXY DVD and the complete 4 hour HALLOWEEN 1978 Show, that is...
