Hiya friends!

I used to be a regular on these boards, some five or six years ago. It's cool to see that a lot of the same regular people from back then are still around. I used to be a diehard fan, but haven't really kept up with any Zappa-related news for a couple of years now. I remember being pretty disappointed with some of the posthumous releases I bought back then (Joe's Domage and the like, think I listened to those once of twice and shelved them), but I do enjoy the Wazoo albums. Since then, I haven't really kept up with any other ZFT releases until I heard about the new Roxy cd pre-order. Any other recommendations for good posthumous stuff? Thanks in advance!

PS.. George Duke RIP.

I'd say "Hammersmith Odeon" is a pretty good representation of the Belew-Bozzio band. Plus, it finally offers the 1978 arrangement of "Little House" piano introduction! Good energy overall and some terrific improv.

I also like "Road Tapes Vol 1" with the early post-Collins Mothers in August 1968, before they went for the European tour. Great version of "Holiday in Berlin". But then, I'm a sucker for anything original MOI. But if you like Flo & Eddie band, then perhaps "Carnegie Hall" will tickle your fancy. A big monster setup, with excellent versions of "Billy the Mountain" and the big instrumentals esp. "King Kong", a 30 minute version (perhaps the longest released, discounting the BTB II 1970 version).

Still sadly no 1973 JLP band. But maybe one fine day...

Lumpy Money, Philly '76, Greasy Love Songs (for original vinyl mix). Many of the original titles have recently been rereleased from the original analog masters - http://lukpac.org/~handmade/patio/vinyl ... tpoop.html , Feeding the Monkies At Ma Maison if you like the Synclavier stuff.

Oh I see, by Wazoo albums you must mean this one too. Anyway, strongly recommended...

Finer Moments came out last year and was an actual project Frank had put together and never released in '72. A lot of good stuff, especially Frank conducting Art Tripp on percussion, reminiscent of similar efforts on BWS

Hey Studebaker, long time no see. I suppose you have EIHN already? That one is definitely a cut above.
