When you profess to be a huge fan of all music yet roughly one-third of your music collection is Zappa.

How many fucking times do you need to keep posting this fucking drivel?
As many times as it bothers you, my angst-ridden friend. 8)

Only because the kerosene powered record player is a very inefficient device.

^^^ I wonder if Frank got paid at all for the use of his image. Maybe they paid him in shoes.

Oddly enough, that shoe company is still around. Wonder what the statute of limitations is on something like that? Son of Zappa sues son of Dexter. I suppose the math would look something like: How many months did the ad run, What would the normal payment have been to the artist, What would it be now adjusted for 47 years of inflation?

If folks can be charged for a late fee on a library book overdue by 50 years, it stands to reason that.....worth sending Dweezil a message on his Facebook to ask his lawyer. Who knows, maybe some retroactive payment could happen. Maybe not, but worth asking from a legal standpoint.

Gray Ghost: Happy to contribute.

You were able to tag the exact release date of every FZ album in your Musicbee library, but you're pissed, because you cant find the exact time of day of said releases...to make absolutely sure you've got them in the right order. :mrgreen:

Thing Fish (Nov. 21 1984)
Francesco Zappa (Nov. 21 1984)
YCDTOSA Vol.5 (Jul. 10 1992)
YCDTOSA Vol.6 (Jul. 10 1992)
