Thanks Punk. I get the crazy emails from zappa.com and sometimes I read them and by the end I feel like I haven't really got any information.

Well, with PCs it should be easier than figuring it out by hand, but you will have to learn ancient Egyptian. And studying Linear A is cursed, btw. But solving it brings instant fame!

Damn good quality given the original is a 40 year old analog recording. I'm getting weak at the knees over this one.

I think this is going to be nice.....

I have a copy of the original instrumental LG, which I do love, but will be nice to get everything sounding good and polished as possible, as you mentioned, poly...

LG's been my favourite since I first heard it, and every time I play it I just sit still, listen, and chuckle at Louie the Turkey. I used to have a friend who laughed like that: usually I tried not to make him laugh because of it. (And the volume of his laugh would hurt your ears).

Not sure if I'll buy Lumpy Money. It's going to be very hard to get, and this far I haven't really played any new release the way I play the CP3-and-earlier material. Not even Wazoo.

That will come with time,surely? Same for me, actually, but I think this is because they are new releases, y'know? ( and due to the fact I discovered Zappateers! )

Joe's Menage was on the other day actually. Great!

A lot of newer releases (like Imaginary Diseases) just don't have the same vibe. Or the same start-to-finish superb quality.

From the Los Angeles Times
obituary

Zappa Drummer Jimmy Carl Black, 70, Dies
Los Angeles Times
November 7, 2008
Jimmy Carl Black, the original drummer in Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention, a band that helped define the sub-genre of art rock, died of cancer Saturday. He was 70.

He died in Siegsdorf, Germany, according to Roddie Gilliard, who performed with Black in recent years as part of the Muffin Men, a British group that specialized in performing Zappa's music live.

A note on Black's official website stated, "Jimmy passed away peacefully. ... Jimmy says hi to everybody, and he doesn't want anybody to be sad."

He moved to Germany in the 1990s after marrying a German woman following the death of his first wife.



James Inkanish Jr. was born Feb. 1, 1938, in El Paso, Texas, but was reared in nearby Anthony, N.M. He changed his name after his mother married Carl Black.

He lived in Anthony for 19 years, started playing piano at age 6 and took up trumpet in high school but switched to drums when he joined the Air Force in 1958 because "there weren't any trumpets in rock 'n' roll."

Black moved to Los Angeles in 1964 and formed the Soul Giants with Roy Estrada and Ray Collins. When the group's guitarist was drafted, they hired Zappa, who took over as leader and changed the band's name to the Mothers of Invention.

After Zappa disbanded the Mothers in 1969, Black appeared in Zappa's 1971 film "200 Motels" and went on to play in a variety of musical collaborations. Zappa died of prostate cancer in 1993.

Black quit playing music entirely at times, once earning a living working in a doughnut shop and later as a house painter and decorator.

He reunited with former Mothers Bunk Gardner and Don Preston as the Grandmothers, performing vintage Zappa songs and other original compositions.

Black is survived by his second wife, Monika; six children; and several grandchildren.
