There appears to have been 2 CD releases of this album where FZ plays piano, vocals and produces - one on Edsel and one on Rhino... I'm just wondering if anyone here has heard both or can in some way comment on the comparative sound quality, etc.<br><br>Thanks

Surprisingly, it seems the answer is no.

I believe they are one and the same: both were released in 1993 - on Edsel in Europe; on Rhino in the US.

Sorry for the delay :wink:

From here: http://www.allmusic.com/album/lightning ... 0000621436

"In fact, Zappa himself produced and played on a couple of the demos, and one-time Mothers of Invention members Elliot Ingber and Roy Estrada show up on a few others."
