Great to hear, Basel, I was expecting a 4+ week delivery time (the usual torment with BS/MT), but if this means it could easily arrive this week, I'd be happy as hell --

Mine still has not arrived, it's been three weeks now. I get to wait twice as long as for every other internet music dealer and pay more than twice the postage for the privilege. Top hole, chaps.

Finally got mine in the mail today! Wonderful, wonderful release. The playing is top notch, sound quality is great, and the packaging is quite nice as well. Definitely going to be playing this a lot over the next few weeks.

I was OK with the packaging, but the double CD tray fell out the second time I opened it, but the music is awesome!

in my email "receipt of purchase" it states where it was mailed to (my address)
however it stated ONLY THE NUMBER OF MY RESIDENCE!
No street name or city or anything. Therefore I'm not sure how the post office is going to
find out where to send it!

I emailed back the ZFT to inform them but that was a couple days ago and I haven't heard from them!

WTF!

jeddy that is terrible, this is one of the best ZFT releases, rivaling...well better than Buffalo and good as Philly '76 (IMHO, especially from a guy who has seen FZ at the Spectrum in '75).

LOVE it.
More of this, please and thank you.

5. Oh, In The Sky 2:42
6. Octandre 7:40
7. King Kong 10:17

TT 41:52


...and what a nice track-list it is.

I've gone from disinterested to intrigued. If the sound is Carnegie Hall quality or better, I'm in.


Finally got through the whole thing. Sounds better than Carnegie Hall to my ears. Just a great performance. "Orange County Lumber Truck", "Shortly...", and "King Kong" are things of beauty. "Octandre" sounds deliciously evil. Highly recommended.

Can you pick up from them then? I'm based in Liverpool but, though I'm aware G & S Music are also Liverpool based, and the possibility of collecting orders, possibly for reduced rates -P&P is stated as incorporated into their item prices- has occurred to me, I haven't actually gotten round to checking that out yet (actually I have only had cause to place one order from them to date; 2bh, though they fairly price items relative to Barfko prices and/or import fees standard customers would incur if imported from the ZFT privately, for many items, they are still high prices to pay so I'm always on lookout for better deals, second-hand or otherwise). Still, this would be useful information to be apprised of. 8)

I'm listening to it now, astonishing......!

Who would have played the harp in Trouble Every Day? Ray is not in the lineup.

This has finally arrived in Norway. Listened to it yesterday - wonderful stuff for fans of the Mothers of Invention. Good vibe, some great early guitar playing by FZ, and Octandre is one of the finest tracks MoI ever recorded!

Can someone find the list of who plays what on this thing? I saw the Mothers in August 68 and remember seeing JCB, Roy, Motorhead, Artie, and of course Frank. I think Bunk, Buzz, and Don may have been there maybe Ian as well.- this was a long time ago!.What is the personel for this release?

According to "The Second Disc"...What can be gleaned from other sources, however, is that the band likely consisted of Zappa, Ray Collins, Roy Estrada, Jimmy Carl Black, Art Tripp, Ian Underwood, Don Preston, Bunk Gardner, and Jim “Motorhead” Sherwood.

No Ray Collins but otherwise that is the right personnel.

I think they should have called the series Guerrilla Recordings instead of Road Tapes.

Did you try reading the sleeve? The musicians are listed, and anyone who's heard Ahead Of Their Time, or either of the '68 BTB discs knows Ray Collins was AWOL.
