this is Joe Cocker singing "With a little help from my friends" at Woodstock. With captions of lyrics he sounds like he's singing.

I still fail to see why people give me strange looks when I say I love FZ. The guy was brilliant and the genes were also passed on. (Dweezil may be technically better, and therefore able to do do more than justice to his father's work, but Frank was one of those creative souls who come along far too seldom.) The first two Zappa albums I owned were Weasels and Burnt Weenie Sandwich, which I bought as a twofer LP after a mate played me a third generation cassette copy of a compilation someone had once done. I was hooked from the start and had to get something by him. Just listen to My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mama to hear a genius at work.

Oh, and as for current listening, I haven't been able to stop playing Dala's 'Girls From The North Country' CD. Keep an eye out for these girls, especially if/when they tour again. Recommended for fans of Joni (the folk bit) and the Everley Brothers (the harmonies).

I just love Zapa also, Boomer & Allan. Those albums you mention are brilliant. His music, his politics, his reputation not showing up at concerts and when he did, who knew waht wuld happen! Zappa was a master promoter and deadly serious...he would take NO crap from fellow musicians, no drugs or booze (at least not around him), and expected a strong work ethic from all!

I followed him from the start...Freak Out!, Lumpy Gravy (Duke, duke duke, Duke of Prune!), and We're only In It For The Money!
I got the last one for Christmas when it was released...68? and played it constantly over the Holidays. My visiting Uncle looked at me puzzled as it played and asked, "...You like this?" I said, "Oh yeah!"

And Zapa's cover of "Hey Joe" (a bit different than Bryan's version )
...it had my brother and me in stitches all the way through!

As Boom box said why the funny looks when you say you love Zappa? like oh, your still into that? Like it,s a porno mag. or summat.
F.z. chose humor in music, and thank god for that (wanna buy some mandies bob? )
1st album i heard was Overnite Sensation..i had to keep checking the lyrics..L.O.L. I saw him play London 4 times, probably my favourie being the Zoot alures album in 1976. Love hot rats, one size fits all.
Apart from a few dodgy albums he did to wind up the Warner Brothers contract, he is totally solid from Freak Out onwards.
Zappa plays Zappa play London in November..hope i can be there.

Elite Hotel by Emmylou Harris - with the classic Hillman/Parsons composition, Sin City - and possibly the most sensitive reading of a Beatles' song ever........Here There and Everywhere. Shine on Emmylou!

Boombox - I've just seen your post from early September concerning Frank Zappa and The Mothers. I too love that largely instrumental period of 1968-69...and especially the musicianship of Ian Underwood, Don Preston, Jim Black and Bunk Gardner. Some of it seemed to borrow from the baroque, renaissance and medieval periods. I'm a big Ray Collins fan as well...there was almost something operatic about his voice. A good while ago, I posted a link to the single version of My Guitar - it has a completely different feel to it - though on balance I prefer the otherworldly quality that the album take has.

I get so tired of sneakin' around just to get to your back door.

Agreed on the alternate version of My Guitar - really must try to track down a copy of it, as I only have it on cassette. What always surprises me is the way Dweezil never plays it live on the ZPZ tour, even though he recorded it on his second solo album.

Caravan: Songs For Oblivion Fishermen, a cracking collection of unreleased BBC sessions recorded between 1970 and 1974.

Nice...I was just listening to "In The Land Of Pink & Grey".
So good. "Golf Girl" just rocks for me.
