For those of you who aren't on the mailing list - I just got this through the new mailing list.

Quote:
In commemoration of the FOURtieth Anniversary of a World That Contains Freak Out! we are so very pleased to present the FZ Audiography and Documentary Evidence (for the first time this century) of those certain recording sessions that occurred in Los Angeles between March and April of 1966. Who Could Imagine??? Well, we all know the answer to that question. This exciting and Deluxe, Limited Edition contains FOUR historically magnificent discs for your Audio Gratification. And a Gorgeous booklet - with the original art and lots of special surprises - and your name too.

Read on.

And yes, directly from the Vault to you, this is your once in a lifetime opportunity to have your name included in the List of Lists - as a person of interest who contributed in a material way to make this music possible. With all due respect to AAAFNRAA, this is a limited offer and you must act quickly or forever hold your peace. (No, we did not say to withhold Peace!) This is Exclusive to Barfko-Swill.

Shortly after you receive this email with all of this stunning information you will be able to go to Zappa.com and see that the Pre-Order is for real. And we also want to assure those of you who are possibly frightened of something that costs as much as Ms Pinky in these days of (speaking of) highly inflated gas prices and unseasonably rising global tensions and air temperatures that there will also be available a Very Wonderful Two Disc FZ Audio Documentary Release that might well turn up in greater convenience in your favorite record store (Is there such a Beast Anymore?). But for those of you without FEAR, who crave the Origin of the Species in all its Tactile and Audiophile MAGNIFICENCE, you know what to do. And we thank you for allowing us the pleasure of you r audience for FZ.

Cool! I'll only have to wait until I'm 74 years old to hear The Yellow
Shark in SACD. Thanks Rykodisc!

This 4CD-album will probably cost millions of dollar

Who knows... I guess that might be the case if the package includes the same Audio Documentary that will also be sold separately. Or maybe both a mono and stereo Freak Out? As much as I welcome new releases, the usual ZFT vagueness is annoying.
