    Hopefully the new liner notes will improve. Nobody wrote "fake Frank" as badly as GZ did. Sheesh!

    Aw, no "Willie the Pimp"? :(
     
  3. Those are LP's, correct?

    Yes. Lp versions of the 1986 Ryko CDs (with some variations).

    Well, the "Strictly Commercial" CD had some notes by Terry Gilliam!
    Was a nice change of pace....

    Her style wasn't "fake Frank." It was the opposite of the concise and unpretentious liner notes he did, especially on the later albums like the YCDTOSA series.

    My take is she attempted to toss as many FZ tropes into her narrative as possible. "Makes its own sauce," etc. Hence my characterization of "fake Frank."

    She did that sometimes, yes.

    Not exactly.

    Box One:

    It has been confirmed that We're Only In It For The Money and Cruisin' With Ruben and The Jets are identical to the original Ryko CDs, but Freak Out! came from the original 1966 tapes. I haven't heard what the source for Absolutely Free or Lumpy Gravy were.

    Box Two (this is the only one that I actually owned):

    None of these have the Ryko CD versions. The most obvious difference is that Hot Rats is the original mix, not the Ryko remix.

    Box Three:

    Most reports that I've read seem to confirm that all of the albums are identical to the Ryko/Barking Pumpkin CDs except for Roxy & Elsewhere, which has the original mix of "Cheepnis" not the remix.

    Well, I ordered Zappatite a couple of days (birthday present) and it arrived today. Wow, I'm really impressed. I was familiar with about four songs, but damn this may end up being expensive.

    Enjoy it! Discovering Frank and exploring his discography was one of the best musical experiences in my life.

    its probably because it seems like there are 3-4 new zappa releases a year and I just missed them lol

    Sounds like my experience with Strictly Commercial circa 1998. Yeah, get ready to wring out that wallet.

    I mentioned this purchase to my wife yesterday. She said, "Oh, I like his song Stairway to Heaven". Explain I did. She did offer to pay for it, another birthday present.
    We had fun last night driving home from dinner and listening to Valley Girl. She liked a couple of other songs too.

    I know many on these forums are clued into such things. For tracks that repeat between Strictly Commercial and Zappatite; are there any glaring differences? It seems to me that Joe's Garage is longer on Zappatite. Any other key differences? I know Strictly Commercial had a number of single edits; is Zappatite similar?

    Also somebody referred to a longer version of Dinah Moe Hum at some point in this thread. What release has that? Thanks.

    "Joe's Garage" is a single edit on Strictly Commercial.

    I'll have to dredge out my copy of "offended". I have not listened to that in a while.
