Them or Us still 1984 and here is Franks money maker for this year and the last of the "Dog" Covers

I'll go for "In France" because it funny and this album had a sticker that said "contains content "which a truly free society would neither fear nor suppress", and a "guarantee" which stated that the lyrics would not "cause eternal torment in the place where the guy with the horns and pointed stick conducts his business."

Still 1984 and we get Thing-Fish
Not sure about this one, have not got it myself think its look on in a better light these days but not a favourite, Frank was always pushing boundaries and he nudged a few here............... he was forever trying to get a stage play or film (thingfish speak) up and going.

Image

Could have gone for "Briefcase Boogie" but I go for "The Meek Shall Inherit Nothing"

Last installment for 1984 a busy year and the last Dog cover Francesco Zappa

Strange album. Frank hears of Italian little known unpublished composer called Francesco Zappa and decides it would be a good idea to release an album of his namesakes works using his new Synclavier machine. Maybe he was trying to recoup some cost for it without have any royalty issues, he was about to be sued by some of the original mothers for non payment of royalties. Incidentally this is the other CD I left in a French Hire car if anyone finds it, you can keep it :mrgreen:

fav song - not sure

Now we leave 1984 and it time for The Old Masters. I've only got the sampler on vinyl of this set which I like but this is the set that brought to life the re-record WOIIFTM & and Cruising with Ruben & the Jets. I have CD of the re-recorded Cruising but I try not to listen to it much prefer the original vinyl version.

Image

Anyway Box I is the first in a series consisting of
Freak Out!
Absolutely Free
Lumpy Gravy
We're Only in It for the Money
Cruising with Ruben & the Jets
Mystery Disc

I'll go for Charva from the Mystery Disc

now its 1986 and time for Does Humor Belong in Music?

Concert recordings from October–December 1984, I've got the DVD of his one (same title) but with some different tracks

I'll go for Whipping Post. the story behind Zappa playing this Allman Bros song is an interesting one.

"In a 1974 concert in Helsinki, Finland, an audience member repeatedly disrupted a Frank Zappa performance by shouting a request for "Whipping Post." Zappa responded by playing a version of his song "Montana",[23] where he altered the lyrics with references to whipping posts.[22] (This incident was eventually captured on his You Can't Do That on Stage Anymore, Vol. 2 live album, released in 1988.) In 1981, Zappa's band learned "Whipping Post" and added it to their repertoire, since the band's new singer and keyboard player Bobby Martin knew the song and sang the lead vocals on it.[22] Zappa released a version of the song on the 1984 album Them or Us; a live recording of the song featuring Frank's son Dweezil Zappa on lead guitar was released in 1986 on the Does Humor Belong in Music? album, while a different version appeared in the associated video. Zappa also included a live solo from this song on Guitar with the title "For Duane". In the released versions, Bobby Martin also used the closing line "there just ain't no such thing as dyin'" that Allman had sung on ABC In Concert."

Today its 1986 and Jazz from Hell, I'll skip the remaining Master Box set #2. This was Zappa's final studio album released in his lifetime. For the remaining seven years of his life, he would only release live concert albums.
Zappa's take on the albums title was "Things in America can be from hell. Right now we have a president from hell [Reagan], and a National Security Council from hell, so we should add Jazz from Hell also."

Zappa won a 1988 Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance for this album

I'll go for NIGHT SCHOOL

I go with Strictly Genteel. For the composition more than for this particular performance.

Eddie, I think that makes about 7 favorites we have in common. I couldn't believe you picked Camarillo Brillo. That took balls and I agree with you. The simplicity of that arrangement is brilliant. The 50/50 lead guitar solo might be the high point of the album for me but CB is my favorite song. Unconcho.

I'll skip the Old Master Bix set again and move onto Guitar and 1988

Not an album i've got (have the box set shut up & play) This was Zappa first release both on CD and Vinyl from day one. The double CD contained all 32 tracks while the double LP was pared down to 19 tracks and released on Zappa's Barking Pumpkin label (US) and Zappa Records (rest of world).

Not a set I see much in the second hand record shops.

lot to choose from her but I'll go for

CB has some of the greatest lyrics in the history of sound recording.
she said her stereo was four way
and I'd just love it in her room

The whole Sears poncho bit seems to sum up a lot of things circa 1973.

It's 10:59 AM in Australia. I'm gonna make my YCDTOSA 2 pick(s):
RDNZL, Inca Roads, and of course Pygmy Twylyte in all it's glory- the song that gave me my user name.

Both Tortures squeezed together.

By the way, your pictures have to have some kind of image file indicator on the end, like jpg or gif.
