Well I got the 43 dollar download. This album will be a big task to "process." There are some nice band jams and alternative mixes. But then there are a bunch of incomplete tracks. Who wants to hear Willie The Pimp with no vocals? Or the track with no guitar, just his crew.

Kind of similar to the Beatles anniversary boxes in that respect. There the best goodies for fans were the alternatve takes that were close to the final take but with some rough edges.

Zappa was anti school. They did not home school but at 15 the Zappa kids took the GED test.

My two cents to a Zappa.com discussion:
There is stuff you can learn in school. It is not taught to the extent I would like, but you can find out
1 how stuff works
2 how the government works

How the internet works is not taught. It is mostly wrong. Or it gives you the answers you think are right. Because if a search disagrees with your premise, you click less clicks, and Google gets less dollars. If it is outside of politics or the arts or any of them soft sciences, I go straight to Wikipedia.

Disappointed again, but you keep buying this stuff

To me they're like the second Highlander film - the sequels sully the experience of the originals. I succumbed myself though, like when that 'new' Coltrane album was 'discovered' after 50 years. It was just a rehearsal that happened to have been recorded.

This one has about an album's worth of good stuff. But they did not offer an album's worth of the best bits. The Zappa in New York was better but the smaller package was only offered as 3 LPs. That is what I got. Any collection with Illinois Enema Bandit I have to think twice on. Any compiation I make would skip that.

Dweezil's part is mixed a bit odd at times
and it is a bit of a budget orchestra...no violin

nearly an impossible piece to do on piano...you have to simulate the sustain that the piano does not have

One of the rare recordings (the whole Sweden concert) on bootleg with good sound that the Zappa family never bothered to release on CD. Very early involvement of Ruth Underwood in the band.

It's a 1973 concert. The earlier 1967 one was sold by Zappa Family but is now only a bootleg
