I've already ordered my copy of Philly. I'm not that impressed with the set list though. It's Zappa Light.

You might think so, but the AUD tape is pretty great.
It'll be sweet to get a Soundboard even if it is boosted to max levels like Buffalo...
IMO, all these vaulternative show releases have 3 or 4 stand out tracks and the rest is 'standard' live zappa (Wazoo was the exception to this so far as far as I can tell).
For instance, though there are a number of things also found on ZINY there are also a number of things that aren't there like Find Her Finer and You didn't Try To Call Me. Black Napkins runs over 18 minutes!
Bianca is a real treat on these last two as well!!

For me it'll be like going back to my childhood and listening to The King Biscuit Flour Hour on the radio late at night with that warm '70's FM sound

I think the drum mix on buffalo is the best mix of drums I have ever heard! Quite a treat for any drummer to have.

Definitely a good release this one. Having a Zappa evening next week with my brother and a mate featuring Carnegie.

Looking forward to it!

How are the liner notes? Any interesting information in that?

The notes are okay, there are no particular highlights. The big deal is the recording itself which is pretty good. I'm impressed anyway. Gail doesn't sound too far out like she can some times.

It's funny that Don got a blank orange panel where they gallery the individual players but his picture is included elsewhere, so he wasn't left out. I'll bet the issue was that they had difficulty finding appropriate pictures of the correct vintage. Don looks like he was photoshopped in, which means they went out of their way to include him, as opposed to snubbing him like some of the zappa.com freaks seem to think.

That is the general consenses over there zappa.com and I've heard about GZ not wanting anything to do with DP after some slight he said or did.I don't think I'd get along with GZ had we been in the same place for awhile.That GZ speak is like a hippie on Lord Of The Rings majic dust.I can't make sense of half of it.That "watch the skies" stuff is just silly,Cosmic Debri talk.I think FZ married a latent zircon encrusted hippie with a poodle fetish! She seems to vasilate between Good Gail.:forumsmiley123: and Bad Gail.:forumsmiley103: when it comes to alumni.DP never did get writing credit for King Kong.I should get a chance to ask him on the 26th of July whats up with that.Anyone got any good questions for any of the Grandmothers I can corral into a conversation?

ask them who came up with the line,
'Take that progress and stick it under a rock!'

ask Nappy, to give an anecdote about the origins of San Ber'dino, or
to all of them, where was the first Holiday Inn?
or Howard Johnson's?
Don and Bunk have records together, and I wonder if they do anything like Don's Agon

Sure,I was in the Palamino one time right after I heard San Ber'dino.I had to stop in and check it out.Had chicken wire around the stage to stop the bottles.No shit! It's not in San Bernadino it's in Bakersfield.The county seat is in San Bernadino.Hence,"they gave him 30 days in San Ber'dino" as the locals call it.That's where the jail is. {-

I missed ZPZ on this tour. Didn't know they were coming. To Utrecht. Which I specifically asked them to come to since it's in the middle of The Netherlands and therefore not an infernal drive to any visitor from any part of the country.

Insert brain here.

That's got to hurt. Were you not reading any of the threads about upcoming tour venues? I lost interest after discovering they weren't coming to Adelaide last April.

I was but I only ever read about the US on those. They didn't mention Europe. And I don't go around checking Dweezil's website, that messes up my cookies.

Messes up your cookies? How?

I can understand you not wanting to go to Dweezil's site given he's not your favourite person anymore.

Hell's truly appeared to have frozen over now that Dweezil will be headlining Zappanale.
