whoops! I stand corrected - the Roxy deserves to be multi-disk though.

Well, I guess Gail and the ZFT actually don't mind losing money, since they're continuing to move "FORWARD" with this project...

I am interested in the releases upcoming. I tried to get everyone I know to buy me a copy of ROXY BY PROXY and none of them would. My friends are so cheap! 8)

I don't think they are losing money with this. They planned to release their own version of Roxy By Proxy regardless of how many of these horseshit licenses they sell. the license is a bonus that was supposed to go towards the film. I'm guessing we'll never see the film.

As far as that latest news letter goes. Mercury in the house of wha? what the fuck are they even talking about now? Frank never wrote this shit. I look forward to more releases and learning about the new releases, but dread reading the fucking things. :?:

Remember that time when FZ used to put out a bunch of records and didn't care about making money because he thought "Music is the best." Gail is strictly commmmmmmmercial!

Yeah...but I'm referring to the licensing project, not the copies they're apparently strictly going to be selling themselves...

Ran the latest message through the bullshit filter:

The Roxy Master offer we extended previously is now being expanded to include fans outside the US. The deadline to respond will also be extended to June 21st. Our estimated ship date should be no later than July 30, 2013.

We're scheduling this to be release number 98 or 99, which means we're planning on some other releases before then. Thank you to everyone who participates you're helping us finish this project.

Go to getsome.zappa.com for the latest information.

Many thanks and good will to all.

Ya, I think Gail is a neo-Pagan hipster.
The stars and alignment of the celestial bodies and all this astrology bullshit....
It always amazes me how seemingly intelligent people can believe some real stooopid shit.

"To each his own"....but...yikes!


She's probably Illuminati

He had Alzheimer's from the day he was elected, and so many lionize him.

Regardless, maybe we are getting some new FZ product this spring

Aren't we supposed to get official release #98 or #99 through the regular channels in April?

Nope. Well, I won't say no for sure, but here's Gail's quote about it (she could change her mind I s'pose):

"That’s a very personal – and brilliant – album. He wasn’t bothered if it was released or not. It was a project done when Frank’s life lasted longer than anyone could have anticipated. He didn’t care if anyone heard it or not – and I feel the same. It was enough that Frank heard it. No amount of money could equal that."

Yet they are more than happy to release Joe's Domage? I don't understand.
