Kinda. I have the Archive Set, so I've heard all the stuff on the highlights CD.

Just so you know, a lot of the FZ related stuff on that set is crap, taken from official FZ CDs. Here's a rundown:



High Steppin'
Never On Sunday (1963 Version)

From Lumpy Gravy, in the case of "High Steppin" - at half speed and a with a dodgy looped ending.

Never On Sunday (1961 Version)
Any Way The Wind Blows
Fountain Of Love

From The Lost Episodes, with digitally faked clean intros and endings (the real clean intros and endings are on the "We Are The Mothers" boot!)

Love Of My Life (Alternate Version)

From Greasy Love songs

Mr. Clean (Alternate Mix)
Why Don't You Do Me Right? (Alternate Demo)

From Joe's Xmasage, with a hefty dose of digital noise reduction on "Why Dontcha"

And interestingly enough:

I'm Losing Status At The High School

from the Zappa & Beefheart Radio Hour boot: it's even at the same wrong speed!

These ones though are all legit Zappa rarities:

Cookin' Turnips - a genuine alternate mix of Speed Freak Boogie
Waltz
Cyclophony (with Steve Allen) - the quality on this is fantastic!
Can't Stand Up
Masked Grandma
Walkin' Out
Love Of My Life (Original Version)
Love Of My Life (Piano Intro)

I have the set, but didn't know all those details - thanks LV.

Apart from the Zappa interest, it's a pretty cool listening experience - especially if you can get excited about raw, energetic surf music from the early Sixties. The most essential tracks are covered on the Cucamonga CD, but if you really like that one, you might want this also. FZ is present in some function on almost all the tracks of the 5 CD set, as musician, writer, producer or engineer.

When I was a young teen, before I'd even heard of Frank Zappa, I fell in love with guitar. I started out with a handful of lessons but got bored and have been self taught ever since. Very early on in that process I got a book of guitar tunes called Rock, Skiffle and Blues. Then I heard Wipeout on the radio and thought it was fantastic. Then, much later on, long after I'd discovered and totally succumbed to the music of Frank Zappa, I found out that Wipeout was recorded on the same machine that some of his earliest recordings would be made on soon after.

Another legit rarity is Why Don't You Do Me Right? (Demo) from January 1963 - performed entirely by FZ.

Oh yeah, totally forgot that one! Despite the dodgy stuff, it's still an essential set.
