Totally blown away by Dweezil, who has become an incredible guitarist now.

For me personally, I think the Hot Rats band kicked ass. The few concerts they played in Southern California were all instrumental. Man, there was some cranking shit being played. I wish ZFT would release one of those concerts. Chub factor 10.

What's life without a little mystery? Or in this case, tons of mystery until the actual releases?

I think it sucks, but hey, they can do it because their audience will buy it regardless.


I don't give a shit about their witty little write-ups but I would like to know a track listing. Is that so difficult? I mean, if it includes what's on the original Roxy there better be a lot more to justify another purchase (plus, some of that material did make it onto YCDTOSA). Some of us are not made of money.

My point exactly. I would like some unheard material too. If it is just stuff from their previous stuff live I probably wouldn't bother. I can hear all that on dub room, token and YCDTOSA2. Unless there are extended versions and new songs its not really worth the money unless the band is super tight and playing older MOI material too. Would love to hear them tackle some WRMF stuff.

Don't you mental midgets know how to read?

What’s On the CD?

All Roxy, No Elsewhere: 76 minutes of never-before-released Frank Zappa master recordings from the Roxy performances of December 9 & 10 1973: Inca Roads, Penguin in Bondage, T’Mershi Duween, Dog/Meat, RDNZL, Cheepnis & Dupree’s Paradise, King Kong, Chunga’s Revenge and you know, that’s not all.

When's the full DVD with extra songs/performance's due out? Or is this it, just a CD, maybe with some extra songs without footage/lyrics and that's all they're putting out for this release? All this hoopla-hoopla, oyink-oyink, for that same thing. Might as well release the 3 unheard of recordings of the MOI and CSN& sometimes Y fighting in the dressing room of the Fillmore East, '71 along with it. :roll:

So...

76 minutes for the CD version: "Roxy By Proxy".

Then the film on Blu-Ray: "The Roxy Performances (Raw Unbriddledness)", which will be "20 original songs, 3 complete shows, 4 hours uncut", like they advertised in the trailer.

I mean, "Montana" & and "Dupree's Paradise" together equals 32 minutes of the 76 promised for the CD... if they're on the CD.
Which means either two discs and a 76-minute movie, or this is just the teaser.
I hope it's the teaser.

Swear I'm not complaining- I'm buying this of course, but I'm not gonna listen to it 'till I've seen the film anyway. 8)

So, do the people that bought a license get the product before it's available to the general public? And how many do they get? I'd look on the website but when you click The License it says it's down for maintenance. I really hope to find someone who bought a license and purchase it from them.

Does the prospect of Roxy make you salivate like Leroy's junk yard dog? Ask Gail to hurry it up! She loves it when you do that. Trust me... :twisted: Other than that, I'm thinkin' of flyin down to another show at The Roxy in Dec. just to make it 40yrs and not a 41 year anniversary when/if they (DZpZ) play this way again.

for the record:

Quote:
If you got the email or clicked above, then you know the Basic Deal: First you must carefully read on – check out the FAQ’s and see if it answers
most of your questions. You may want to go back from time to time to check them out again. Once you agree to the terms of the Official Distribution
License and sign on by making your reservation, you are on your way to becoming a potential distributor of the Zappa CD Duplication Master
Project/Object. You’ll also need to provide payment information. If you make the cut, you’ll receive your own personalized Master CD from which you
can make unlimited CD copies for sale, per the terms of the distribution agreement.

Zappa CD Master Project/Object of your Dreams – the FAQs

What’s the Point? This is a unique opportunity for you to experience life as a music distributor. As an independent distributor, you’ll learn intimate
details about the relationship between the artist and the record company, how everyone gets paid, and how the distribution process really works.
Hopefully, you’ll have a lot of fun too while we make history together. And you will be making history in this way – in creating this Distribution Deal
the master plan is to raise the money it will take to complete the Film, The Roxy Performances and get it out there in Theaters for your hot little eyes
and into your hot little hands on DVD. You are the ones who want it and you are the ones we need to help us make it happen! So this is also a big
Thank you to all the fans that are ready willing and able to participate in the ultimate adventure of distributing this record. We are grateful – and we
are hopeful that you will show us how to do it better than it has ever been done before.

What Do I Get? Your very own personal CD DUPLICATION MASTER, embedded exclusively with information unique to ONLY you. And Liner Notes –
meticulously written by one of the band members, a few finished copies of the actual release (complete with original artwork) which will also be
available to you as an authorized distributor at an exclusive-to-distributor-only wholesale price and, MOST IMPORTANT of all, THE LICENSE
authorizing you (per the contract) to duplicate on disc ROXY BY PROXY for CD Distribution.

What’s On the CD? All Roxy, No Elsewhere: 76 minutes of never-before-released Frank Zappa master recordings from the Roxy Performances of 9
& 10 December 1973:
Inca Roads, Penguin in Bondage, T’Mershi Duween, Dog/Meat, RDNZL, Cheepnis & Dupree’s Paradise, King Kong, Chunga’s Revenge and you
know, that’s not all. Yes, it is the same band as the Roxy part of Roxy & Elsewhere.

When Can I Sign Up? Now. Well, once you have read the terms of the contract and found them agreeable to you. This is a limited one-time offer
which will expire at 5AM Pacific Time on 28 December 2012, not long after the end of the world as we know it on Frank Zappa’s birthday, 21
December 2012.

Who Can Sign Up? We’re looking for approximately 1,000 individuals at least 18 years of age or older. As you know, we at the Zappa Family Trust
are extremely protective of FZ’s legacy. For this reason, we will retain the sole right to approve or reject any potential participant. For example, we
will reject all distribution companies and corporate entities.

What’s The Cost? LICENSE inclusive of the CD Duplication Master costs $1,000.00, plus shipping and handling.

How Will I be Charged? We will collect your payment information when you sign up, and submit it to our credit card processing company, PayPal,
for pre-authorization. PayPal will immediately place a HOLD on your credit card for UP TO 29 DAYS for the FULL AMOUNT (i.e., $1,000.00 plus
S&H).

PLEASE NOTE: At any time prior to the close of the offer period (i.e., 5AM Pacific Time on December 28th), the Zappa Family Trust will have the
option, in its sole discretion, to cancel and/or revoke this offer. In such event, you will be notified, you will not receive the CD Duplication Master, the
hold will be removed from your credit card, and your credit card will not be charged.

In any event, no fees will actually be charged to your credit card until we are ready to move forward with this offer (which we will decide not later than
5AM on December 28th). We will need the full list of participants before we go into production so we can custom tailor each distributor’s personal
identification information onto the CD Duplication Master.

When will you receive the Master CD?
The Master CD will be shipped to the address you provide within 8-10 weeks after the close of offer period
(i.e., 5AM on December 28th). We will strive to ship all the CD Duplication Masters on or about the same day to ensure a fair delivery timetable for
each Distributor.

How Will I Know When The Master Is Shipped? We will notify each Officially Licensed Distributor that the CD Duplication Master has shipped. If
there is a problem with successful payment, we will notify the distributor via email as soon as possible.

How Do I Make Money? Each distributor may set the price for the Distribution CD and sell unlimited numbers of complete, physical CDs at the retail
level. You will also participate in a royalty pool derived from sales of ROXY BY PROXY CD on Zappa Records through Barfko-Swill at Zappa.com as
described below. Note: You can give the CDs away as gifts! There are no exclusive territories for each Distributor.

Are There Distribution Restrictions? Yes. Distributors may only sell the CD at the retail level, which means you cannot contract with any music
distribution company. The CD or individual tracks may not be uploaded to file sharing sites (of any kind) for sale via digital download or sold via any
other digital distribution method.

How Do I Manufacture the Physical CDs from the Master CD? You may secure your own manufacturer to make copies of the Master CD. Under this
approach, you will owe us a mechanical royalty of $1.20 for each CD sold or delivered, payable per the terms of the distribution agreement. In the
alternative, you may use the Zappa Family Trust’s authorized third party manufacturer to make copies of the Master CD. Under this approach, each
CD will be provided to you at the wholesale price of eleven dollars plus shipping and handling. On all such sales, the mechanical royalty of $1.20
will be included in the price to you. Further, for any sales of the physical CDs made by the Zappa Family Trust through its Barfko-Swill website, we
will pay you a royalty based on a percentage of the difference between the retail price and wholesale price as set forth in the terms of the
distribution agreement.

What Kind Of Marketing Materials Can I Use? The Zappa Family Trust will provide each distributor with authorized marketing materials for use in
advertising and promoting the Zappa CD Master Project. Any and all marketing materials created by a distributor must be approved by us in writing
prior to use by the distributor.

Are We Partners? No. Each distributor is acting as an independent contractor for this specific Zappa Master Project and not as an employee, agent,
or partner of the Zappa Family Trust or Barking Pumpkin Records. Each distributor is solely responsible for maintaining customer lists, accurate
financial records and payment of any local, state, or federal taxes or fees. PLEASE NOTE: The Zappa Family Trust retains the non-exclusive right to
distribute the CD itself through its Barfko-Swill website to consumers and the exclusive right to distribute digital and any and all other formats.

Do I Get Any Credit For Participating? You just might. If you “opt-in” on the reservation page, we may include your name, email address, and the
URL of any website you operate or own, on (i) our website, (ii) on the liner notes of the CD, and/or (iii) in any movie/DVD credits, with your permission
of course.

But Seriously, What Does This Really Mean? What it really means is that if we are all successful, the ZFT will have the budget to cover every
possible expense necessary to make THE ROXY PERFORMANCES – The Movie, available just in time for each and every one of us to celebrate the
40th Anniversary of the Original Event. And it will all be down to you!

OK, I Want to Make a Reservation! You need to read and agree to the Distribution Terms and Conditions and fill out the reservation form to continue.

Thank you so much for your interest in the Zappa Master Project/Object. This type of music distribution is a first and is intended to benefit all fans of
Frank Zappa’s music. If you have any questions, please send us an email at getsome@zappa.com

Gail's father was a rocket scientist. Although not a rocket scientist herself, she's biased in favour of complexity and deeply skeptical of the simple and straightforward. Plus she's determined to not be exploited by anyone (including fans) after Zappa's experiences in the music business.

I imagine that is the case. But fans of FZ aren't out to screw her or anyone. Make it more simple and we'll throw money at it.

Yeah I know what you mean, you start out on the Zappa.com as a NuclearProstrate and come out sounding like an AtomicAss. :mrgreen:
