Congratulations on getting the rights to Franks’ catalog or recordings. Will the new reissues be remastered or offer anything different from the original releases?

Tucker, GA

The digital masters were all re-transferred by the Vaultmeister and about a third of the titles were reMastered from the original analog source. So the happy answer is, you betcha!! Each one is carefully labelled with the information you are looking for. Watch the skies.

And thanks!

Hola-

Great news on the re-releases. A few quick questions:

1-The Hot Rats CD has always been a 1987 re-mix, not the original 1969 mix. Is this new CD the `69 mix, or the `87 re-mix? I pefer either.

2-Is the packaging faithful to the LP’s?

3-Should I sell or junk my `95 Ryko CD’s, or keep `em as collector’s items?

Thanks!

Jess R. Hernandez

Thanks! 1. Technically none of the above – this is the 2008 Bernie Grundman Re-master – which mostly resembles the original 1969 mix. You will love it. 2. Absolutely. And even more faithful to the requirements established by the original Barking Pumpkin releases. 3. I would keep them for the moment – but you decide. None of the new releases are “sourced” from the Ryko releases and although many represent the digital masters mostly as you have come to understand them, many do not! Each package will identify the actual source so you will be able to plan your collection accordingly. We think everything sounds better but I am sure you will let us know.

Thanks for your email.

In her latest responses, Gail says that a couple of emails are on their way to those who have signed up to recieve them and these will contain further detail on the reissues and the social experiment. Now, even accepting that I am thick, I can't see a way to sign up for such updates from the main site. Could someone with sharper eyes than me post a link please? It's possible that there is a really obvious sign- up pop up that is being blocked by my work machine but if not, it seems a shame that getting onto the email list appears to be a faily tricky thing. Thanks a lot.

hey Gail,

congrats on getting the catalogue back. I’m really excited with the UMG reissues.

I was wondering if there will be a boxset – or better yet, for us nomadic fans, some sort of zip drive – where I can buy the whole shebang in one go or will I have to pick them up in installments.

Also, is the UMG deal only for albums up to YELLOW SHARK?

Will LATHER, LOST EPISODES, HIOSomeone and MYSTERY DISC make the cut?

Will 200 MOTELS and MOTHERMANIA be back (in physical form)?

Any enlightenment on such matters would be just gravy,

Eric.
Eric,

There will be more exciting gravy for you later next month but the answer to your last question is yes on Lost Episodes, HIOSomeone & Mystery Disc. Thank you for sharing your joy and commitment!

Dear gz,


I have two questions:


1) Why is there zero publicity regarding the reissues? I can find NOTHING other than regurgitations of the press release.


2) What happened to the Roxy Concerts announcement? What is the “social experiment” that you speak of, and how can I participate? I never received the promised follow up email.


Please know that I will be buying all the reissues, not picking and choosing, in order to support you and the Trust. One can never have enough FZ!


I was a university musicologist in the past, who walked away from it to sell cars — long story. Now, I own a small business with my wife. I discovered FZ about three years ago and have been SLOWLY listening to all of his music carefully and thoroughly, album by album, in their historical order of release — and to give you an idea of how slow, I am only on The LSO Vol. 1 album, after 3 years!!!!! Yet, I now listen to NO OTHER MUSIC than that of your late husband. (So, clearly my slowness is due to thoroughness, not laziness. I move on to the next album when I am satisfied or impatient. LOL!)


Having written a book on Beethoven, and have specialized in the past in 19th C. chamber music, I can (and often do), look people straight in the eye and to their amazement, and my own as well, honestly say that I believe your husband to be the greatest composer to have breathed air on this Earth. Greater than Bach, and greater than Mozart (though I never thought I would say that!). He has eclipsed my love of Beethoven, and the shared passion for Stravinskii — know that I got GREAT pleasure from his allusions in the second album and throughout the body.


I owe a great deal to FZ for my own musical evolution after having been stuck for many years — one of the reasons that I left academe.


Anyway, all that just came out.


I have great respect for you, your family, and a deep love for your late husband.


Thank you, and may Great Spirit (i.e. – simple “Truth”) bless you…


Love,


Brian (& Katherine) Boldt


PS – We do our initials like you and Frank do. Just noticed that today! FZ/gz — BB/kb

Brian (& Katherine),

Did you sign up to receive emails? Assuming that you did (perhaps obviously), expect a couple next week – one on Diva’s birthday about the RE- Releases and one soon after regarding the grand “Social Experiment.” To say that we have been a bit busy is a complete diminishment of the facts – we have gone over every album cover – all the art and their respective details – with a comb of the highest order of fine teeth. They are all being reprinted just for you and anyone else who sees FZ in their mirrors as you do! Thanks for your attention and your ears. The 60 Masters FZ made for Barking Pumpkin can be available, 12 per month for a total of 56 Titles, at a mailbox (or a store) near you beginning next week. You know what to do.

And Brian (& Katherine), thank you so much for your kindness and consideration in sharing your feelings with us. This is what makes my heart sing in the midst of all the drama and protocol of administrative clerking about. That, and the MUSIC!

The point is i like reading Black on White 8)

"The 60 Masters FZ made for Barking Pumpkin can be available, 12 per month for a total of 56 Titles."

So it is 56 or 60, Gail? Make some sense.

My guess (I'm an accountant so I can "bend" numbers)

LSO I and LSO II bundled together 2 fer 1 title/release reduces 1 number

Joe's Garage I and Joe's Garage 2 & 3 together 2 fer 1 title/release - reduces 1 number

Shut Up...Shut Up Some More...Retun of the Son of - 3 titles/1 release reduces 2 numbers

60 - 4 = 56

That is how 56 equals 60
