The Zappa In new York 40th was great, but what do you think might be next?

With the Hot Rats 50th, any vault stuff from that to make it a box?


(Personally, I'd love to see YCDTOSA 7-12 released in another road case!)

HOT RATS PLEASE! There is the original vinyl LP mix, then the very different CD release, and I betcha there are plenty of outtakes. Other boxes that should be obvious would be the complete Live at the Fillmore 71 concert (Though most of that has been released in chunks, it would be nice to have the whole wazoo in one package) and the entire Bongo Fury concert.

I was thinking about Bongo Fury yesterday. That was from two shows (May 21& 22). I suspect Frank cut up the tapes perhaps making full concerts difficult to piece together (like Zappa in New York). So maybe a package with the original album plus additional CDs with the best of what’s still available from the shows (like the 40th anniversary ZINY). I’d be thrilled if they expanded it further to include material from other shows from that tour (not just from Austin).

There is not that much Hot Rats unused stuff.

Flo and Eddie material...well organized!... could make a nice double or triple CD set. The Carnegie set is strangely mono. The tracks from the same in YCDTOSA 1 are in stereo!

The thing is, you can't do this without a version of the groupie routine. And there is almost no Zappa guitar on many tracks. Essentially a trio of keyboards bass and drums backing Flo and Eddie.

We all have a shitload of the Fillmore material, yet I never bothered to organize it into a nice program. I would leave a single Yoko and Lennon track in it.
