"Exciting New Title (TBA): Compiled by Frank Zappa just in time for what turns out to be THIS U.S. Presidential Election!!!"


It's gotta be this. What is it? I have no clue.

The Lost Interview possibly? Although the price suggests a 2CD set. Music plus interview?

"The total interview runs about an hour and covers music politics and popular culture from 1950s through 1990. This interview was never released. It was recorded in 3 segments 1990 in LA, but never completed as a final project. Intended to be kind of retrospect of what happened to the personal growth and idealism of 60′s as it whitewashed into the self indulgence of the 70s and 80s and the corporatism of America."

From the old Kill Ugly Radio page.

Huh! Curious for it, but I bet it's a Synclavier pastiche. (Which I'm not against, I enjoy the synclavier stuff)

Yeah, I was hoping that Congress Shall Make No Law was synclavier stuff. NOT!

After a bit of contemplation over the weekend, I for myself tend to scrap the idea of a supposed 2-CD set that's entirely made up of monologue. But what do I know? Perhaps it was conceived as a hand-out to potential donators, rather than to hit the stores and meet the ears of the top 40 audience of the day. -- More Synclavier Muzik though, that'd be nice.

IMO this shouldn't be a CD/download release to pay for. Why can't the ZFT start up their own youtube channel, and just put it on there for FREE? This will be one for the diehards only. What Frank is saying, we already know, sort of preaching to the choir. If it was on youtube officially for anyone to hear, maybe the message would get across for those who need to hear it. Just sayin'.

Seems like a boot/grey area release to me.
But if it was what Fred said, I'd have to agree.
Bite-sized morsels on youtube for the masses.

This was the first FZ release I considered skipping - EVER.

Put a preorder into Amazon US - I hope it is real music...not dialog - not synclaiver

My sources tell me it's a 3 hour treatise on the band America. Chapter 11 on A Horse With No Name is worth the price of the disc alone.

Preorder? I know it was up there last week, but I haven't seen a listing for it since then.
