hi guys.
what if you could custom-make your very own zappa album collection box set!!?
sounds a little coo-coo coo-coo, right?
hey, no one said we COULDN'T wish up on a star here.

so let's do just that! deal?



i apologize if this topic has been covered. i didn't do too much of a search.
i just got this idea and had to whip it out. (LOL - anyone catch that!?)

so yeah, what's yours?

I'm going to add this to the Frank Zappa Box Set forum with your permission. Perhaps MP3 collections can make everyone's dream a reality.

Suit yourself. For this fan, a collection like this is equal to a box set but the only trouble with releasing MP3's even ligitimately is that the rate of being able to copy them all over the place increases 10 fold. I guess there's not a lot stopping people from copying the CD's and MP3ing those as well but perhaps actual physical box sets satisfy both parties in the long run, whereas MP3's on there own are wonderful, so long as you don't loose your hard drive etc. With an actual Vinyl or CD or even tape collection you have a permanent collection so long as it's not physically stolen etc.

On this note, there are some great CD copy protection methods available now to prevent this but I think Frank would want his music to be heard most of all. That said if it's not supported properly, new releases will dry up due to becoming not commercially viable or worth while etc. No serious fan wants that.

So to conclude an actual real album box set with bonus tracks etc equates to serious sales, while online MP3 sales equates to a few serious fans purchasing the sets, while the rest of the world just grabs a copy. What supports the artist and people of the artists trust more, I guess is the ultimate question?

I'm in. I think I would include the Bozzio version of Baby Come Back though.

Punky come back,
Any kind of drool is free,
When it's on my dong,
You know I just can't pout without you.
