I tried to collect everything Frank has done but stopped at his early 80's output. I think after then decent stuf is furter and farther between.

Frank Zappa is the man, that's who he is Thumbs Up.
His excited eyes from within the dark interior glazed;

watered in appreciation of his thoughtful preparation.

I just typed out a long paragraph only for an error in connection to this forum to wipe out everything I typed. Only this forum.... Angry

Short version: I liked Roxy By Proxy, but it seems like an alternate version of Roxy & Elsewhere, with different renditions, new dialogue. I expected more songs that weren't on R&E that were played on the late-73 tour. I'll admit, Inca Roads was cool, but I think I've heard better versions of that lounge version of the song before it became the One Size Fits All version. I also liked the 'drums-only' of Cheepnis; it sounds like a hip-hop track.

Anyone check out Joe's Camouflage? I'll probably get it sooner or later, and I expect it to be similar quality to Joe's Menage, but I haven't heard much about it online.

Roxy By Proxy is great!!!!
 
As I mentioned yesterday, Ruth Underwood wrote extensive liner notes describing intricate detail as to what she and the other band members were doing within the pieces,  giving unusually deep insight as to what was going on on stage.
 
The music itself is amazing.  While some titles are the same as the Roxy and Elsewhere album, it appears that, for the most part each is from another show (R&E came from 2 Roxy shows, and "elsewhere").  Pieces pop up here and there that sound like sections spliced in on the heavily produced and overdubbed R&E, but no full tracks are duplicated.
 
"Inca Roads" is somewhere between the more free-form version released previously (I forget which album it was on) and the studio version on OSFA.
 
The Uncle Meat and King Kong medleys are astounding, and "Cheepnis" is performed first as a percussion only piece, giving us a nice view of the basics of the songs, before the full version is performed. 
Trust me. I know what I'm doing.

At the present, I have 35 Zappa LP'S, my least visited albums are Sheik Yerboutie, the Joe's Garage trilogy, and You Are What You Is, oh, and 200 Motels. Definitely some great music and singing to be found, but not fully to my tastes. I love Tinsel Town Rebellion a lot though, and a few after that. Most eartime is spent with his '67-'77 albums nevertheless.

I won't have a chance to listen until tomorrow.   Ruth's liner notes are fantastic.

Yes, that's the dialogue at the beginning of Regyptian Strut, the first track on Läther.


WOW...It is the one...Feel free to tell how you've found it!


It is rare on the net (a youtube link, now gone?, must have been my first hearing of it), but there's at least a link: Won't psys and great poets as talented as Morrisson bow down to it...

I believe that the Zappa family spends a lot of time looking for videos uploaded to Youtube without their consent, and has them removed.  So something you see there today may not be there tomorrow.
