How can i do this easily on a mac?
Thanks for any help!

Finally found the time to get the bundle download done. The audio files were no problem, the video took five tries before a successful completion via my kerosene powered internet connection, and plays fine through the quicktime player. I didn't have a flac player, but I do now......

A nice little addition to the collection.

This Birthday Bundle is AMAZING!!!!! I have a Mac; wait until music today sends you an email with a link to their download site, copy link, go to SAFARI, not CHROME, and paste and open link, allow Java Applet to run, and Viola, tasty FZ Treats. Enjoy!

Arf!

Who the freaking hell is Del Casher? I don't see him listed here: http://globalia.net/donlope/fz/musicians/index.html
Was he a full time member of MOI for short time? Or did he just sit in on one studio session? I'm guessing this "Freak Chouflee" is a loose studio jam? Wonder what else there is from this session.

I'm thinking that it was a one time jam. Del Casher invented the Wah-Wah pedal. Maybe he dropped by to talk pedals or gear with Frank and sat in.

That's because he's alphabetized under the original spelling of his name, Kacher.

http://globalia.net/donlope/fz/musician ... #KacherDel

He was in the Mothers for a short time.

Del also appears on Finer Moments (back cover artwork only, though!).

Chouflée
also features ‎‎Ray Collins on tambourine (he's just been retrospectively added to credits at Zappa.com).

And there's me thinking I was reasonably computer savvy - has anyone else had problems downloading these files? I've had absolutely no luck. I don't know if it's my Mac running Safari or Musictoday but I still have no files! I have tried contacting Musictoday but no response yet, although I suppose it's still the season to be jelly.

I received the email and copied the link into the browser. But no joy. I'm satisfied it might be because I'm an idiot, but even so, I'd still like to hear the files.

Maybe if enough of you downloaders buy this thing, we could then get a DVD - "Through The Eyes Of Nordegg" or something? :wink: :mrgreen:

3NSAMBL3 played a very good uncle meat version, a right answer to my ears. Thank you, good band (3NSAMBL3), see you perhaps somewhere else with your america vibe sound.

Hollywood recording star Del Kacher

For this ad, his name was spelled Kacher rather than Casher.
He was born Delton Kacher. He later changed it to Del Casher.

The birthday bundle(s) are the only reason I have iTunes on my PC, I've recently started thinking about obtaining some kind of modern portable music player, my Discman has finally bitten the dust, and my mini disc player has started to freeze mid tune, requiring a reboot (battery removal) to resume my listening.....I'm so far behind the times, I'm going to have to do some research prior to a purchase. I have a tiny Samsung GT-I5503T smart phone, but it's my understanding that I'll have to duplicate the music library on my PC to put songs into it..... :?
