Once upon a time, way back a long time ago when zappa.com consisted of nothing more elaborate than infrequently answered FAQs, Dances enquired about Jimmy Carl Black's medical problems. Well, after battling leukemia for seven years, he now has inoperable lung cancer. He leaves hospital in Germany on Monday (1 September) to undergo chemotherapy as an out patient. To help Jimmy pay his mounting medical bills, there's a special limited edition CD (Stick Man For Ever!) and some nifty apparel and other stuff available to buy here: http://www.cafepress.com/jimmycarlblack. Please do what you can to help a dear old Mother.

Are you sure you wouldn't rather be the first one on your block to have one of those genuine, accept no substitutes, Jimmy Carl Black thongs?

80th Anniversary News Letter – Jimmy Carl Black

Just a reminder to all Jimmy's fans: Feb 1st 2018 marks the 80th anniversary of Jimmy's birth in El Paso Texas.

......

In 2013, Tom Black revamped Jimmy's website, giving it a new look to reflect Jimmy's passing.

As we worked through the materials and resources Jimmy left behind, pages have been added to the website.

These include:

* "For Mother's Sake" - Jimmy's Memoirs, published posthumously on Nov 1st 2013, honoring Jimmy's last wish, first in paperback and then as an e-book.

* "Uncle Jimmy's Little Online Record Store" - reopened for fans and visitors at discounted prices, CD, DVD and Vinyl sales help keep the website going.

* "Where's the Beer and when do we get paid?" - filmed in Germany in 2008, first shown in 2012, the movie reflects on the life of a modern day troubadour.

* Photo Galleries: of Jimmy's prodigious output of sculptures; of Jimmy's prodigious output of music; of concert posters collected by Jimmy.

* Comprehensive but still incomplete lists of where and with whom Jimmy gigged down the years.

* Recollections of times with Jimmy by other musicians. You must read the Buddy Owen saga, recalled by Jimmy in his book but further elaborated on by Dennis Young.

* Long lists of links - you can still see Jimmy 'out there' in the Cloud - still talking, singing, playing and dancing.

......

But there's more to be done:

We started Inkanish Publications in 2012 to consolidate and release Jimmy's artistic output to the public again: to fulfil his last wish; to honour his memory; because of his importance to the history of rock music.

Jimmy's trove of live and studio recordings has still to be processed, including analogue & digital music & video reaching back to the 1970s. This is a very big job. It's going to be costly and time-consuming work. Any ideas, other than trash the lot?

......

The website isn't much visited these days, except by machines trying to leave unwanted ads. Jimmy's fan-base is 10 years older and maybe smaller.

If you received this newsletter as an email, it is because you subscribed to the newsletter or because you have been in correspondence with jimmycarlblack.com at some time. Could you do one or two things for us:

1. If you would like to stay subscribed or in correspondence with jimmycarlblack.com, please forward this email back to us as a "got you" email. Jimmy's subscriber fan-base is 10 years older now and may be smaller. Email addresses may have changed. We would like to update the Subscriber list so as not to send unwanted emails in future.

[If you would like to become a subscriber, please use the Subscribe button on the Home page]

2. There is a short one-minute slide-show running in celebration of the 80th anniversary of Jimmy’s birth. Could you take a look at the website yourself? - You might like to promote the website for us via your friends? Or you might not! Comments would be welcome, even negative ones politely stated.

......

We thank you anyway.

Julian Smith,

PP: Moni Black; Tom Black
