WOW. An almost 11min unreleased Frank Zappa improvisation.

Thankfully I managed to snap a copy from a seller in the UK(will arrive at the end of the month.) Look forward to hearing this one. The 'Little Dots' album was superb, so nice to have a bit more of that album and in fantastic glorious Vinyl.

ROCK ON!!!!!

Just checking out the RSD page to make a want list before heading out. I notice that the Lumpy Gravy 10" is not listed. Was it cancelled? Any of you east-coast guys seeing it?

Yes,.....this was cancelled (they say "delayed") .....but to me it was cancelled. I was SOOO VERY excited to be getting this today.....went to my shop and was told it was cancelled until 2018!! DAMN! I'm guessing that the pressing was delayed. But with all the financial troubles I'm going through....well, it felt like thee last Zappa LP I was going to get for a while.....AND an important piece of Frank's history to boot. It's going to feel like a very long wait for this one.....if I can even afford it at all when it does get released. :cry:

Bummer! Another disappointing Record Store Day. I had even worn (for the first time) my Zappa movie Kickstarter shirt for good luck. The good part for me was that hardly anyone bothered to show up--couldn't have been more than 10-12 customers, and I was third in line. The bad part is that hardly any of the records showed up, either, at least the ones I wanted. I came away with just two items from my list (and paid too much for both of them). Got the Albert Ayler/Don Cherry LP and the Procol Harum 10".

Yeah....it was a bummer. The store owner kept following me around showing me other items he "thought" I might be interested in....but wasn't. HA! I got that RHINO Garage Band comp....and the UTOPIA out-takes EP. I saw the Procol Harum.....is that a very good one? I was interested.....but was a bit "short on cash". Albert Ayler/ Don Cherry? Man, I'd bet that's a great one!!

Yeah, the Ayler/Cherry was the only thing they had that I really, really wanted. I could have snagged the Muddy Waters LP, but didn't want to pay the asking price. The Procol live 10" was at the bottom of my want list. Their new album is not very good, but on this live disc they do the one really great song from it (plus one of the not so great ones) as well as a couple of early classics. I was really hoping to find the United States of America and the Ravi Shankar albums.

Damn....both of your "wants" were right there at my store in Wilkes-barre PA! I even looked at the USA....but it was $30 and the sleeve is thin and the pressing seemed to be of average weight. But was it....I'm not sure? My cash was short and I went for my two things......."sigh"...

The Procol was up here too.....if it is still there I may buy it later. You seem to eye that new album the same way I did....and that would be the only reason I'd want that EP......better ,live cuts than the new LP. Thanks for the opinion. Stuff like this I've eyed with suspicion ....besides ,at "these prices" you have to be careful.

I checked the Sundazed website and was able to order the USA album directly. (I also checked the Muddy Waters and the Sun Ra 3-LP but they were both listed as "out of stock.") They are also still selling those Captain Beefheart singles they did for RSD years ago!

A record store owner told me she got an email saying that the release was pulled and that they may release it for the spring RSD.

Looking forward to it. An unreleased part of Lumpy Gravy. That goes to the top of my list as well.
