22.43 update..

all the zappa albums are now on spotify in the uk and showing on my mobile version, as for the desktop version if you search Frank Zappa only Waka/Jawaka comes up, but if you search individual album titles you will find what you are looking for... been listening in order of releases, i am on Money at the moment, sounding great....

Those sites might be somewhat useful but is there one that doesn't demand you are on Facebook or use a Windows PC? :?

Um, sure.... Spotify. It's also available via Mac, iPhone, Android....
Also, you can tie-in to Facebook but there is no obligation to.

Alright, new update for the US: Remaster albums are appearing on Spotifty! You can sign up for a free 30-day premium account to hear it in 320kbps!
From a quick glance on this end, it looks as though all of the albums are up there, just half of the songs (with the other half still greyed out (most likely processing...)

W00t!

UPDATE: I'm an idiot - those songs that were showing up "UN-greyed" were my local versions. So still waiting for the "grey tunes" to become "valid"

I don't use Mac, or iAnything, or SmartPhone.
Went to the page to "register" and it required FaceBook :shock: , I don't do that either.
No thanks. Nevermind WHY I don't use any of that crap. :roll:
I guess they only want HIP users and TRENDMONGERS to participate in their experiment and consume the LOAF.
I'll go back to my archaic sound system and primitve cds now. :smoke:

"Required" Facebook? Yeah, I see what you mean. That's "new". Here's a workaround: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-501465_162-20112335-501465.html
It's worth checking out, IMO - but if you already have any audio that comes to mind at your fingertips for free... then I'm not not here to stop you. :roll: :wink:

its not an experiment , its very successful, and works very well, its new in the US but i have been using it for a few years and it works lovely, no one is consuming any loaf, it works very well, it means those of us who do not want to buy pieces of plastic don't have to anymore, those who want to are welcome to...

I'm pretty sure the "some see them, some won't" is whether or not you have it selected to include "local files" in your Spotify setup. :wink:

Something to think about..........................................

PRE-INTERNET when a band had a tour and/or new album out you didn't know what to expect. you waited for it to come out or you went to the show etc... if you were disappointed, you got over it.
people are nothing but a buncha spoiled and jaded instant gratification cunts nowadays!!
