I saw or read somewhere that the Box Set Halloween mask wavkey was a limited edition release. If so, how many are we talking about? Or did my mind just do gravity vortex again?

I ordered on 25th October when they'd apparently run out. I got confirmation on 31st October to say it was shipping and it arrived 8th November. Mine is number 1907.

Mine's #2927. Very middle of the road. (A prime number, too.)

I’m enjoying this but I still wish they would have released this on CDs. I would have paid twice as much for that. I can only play it on my home stereo. It won’t play in my car for some reason.

Maybe you can convert 'em for mp3, for your car?

How is your foot?

Audio converters are real cheap. Simple to use.

That’s good because I’m a simple guy. I’m only interested in two things. Can you guess what they are?

Halloween 77 Box Set Track Error

November 21st 2017


We have discovered that a track on the Halloween 77 Box Set has an error. The faulty track is “Wild Love” from Show 2, 10-28-77. We are happy to provide you with the corrected track.

If you purchased the box through the Zappa.com Store you will have already received an email with a link to your download.

If you purchased the physical box set elsewhere, simply email us at info@zappa.com with a picture of your box number, and we'll send you a link/code to download the replacement track.

Thanks,
Your friends at Zappa Records

Many thanks Gray_Ghost,
I'll be sure to get that photo to you. Currently I havn't encountered any issues at all but perhaps I was so busy rocking out that I didn't notice.
Superb to note there's support for this product. It's one of the finest Zappa releases I've ever heard period so many thanks to all involved for making it possible.

Any ideas on what was wrong with the track? The download is about 2 min. shorter, so it's not missing music.

The second verse (“Mama stroked his dinger...”) was inadvertently repeated.

Thank you very much for the ASS (After Sales Service).

Got a question for ya!

Is this the first real (I mean real!) Limited Edition release ? I had thought that FZ-OZ in 2002 was to be limited to the people on the list, but that turned out to be false. Any others ?
