Hmm, that sucks... you can throttle the bandwith with most torrent clients so it won't use your entire line capacity. Still will take ages to download a full DVD...<br><br>I used to use WinMX a lot for Zappa vids. I don't know if they still have a decent selection, but it's worth a try (and it's free of spyware. Slow as shit, though..)

Thanks Slime-o. For Frank to get up and play like that, after not picking up a guitar for 3 years, is pretty fuckin' amazing.

I always read about a reggae version of Bolero being on Best Band... but it's not on my copy! The discography that is listed on many web-sites, including my own, has the following information:
8. Bolero (5:33)
9. Zoot Allures (5:19)
10. Mr. Green Genes (7:07)
11. Florentine Pogen (3:41)
12. Andy (7:12)
13. Inca Roads (5:51)
14. Sofa #1 (8:20)

But on my Ryko '95 issue, it's
8. Zoot Allures (7.07)
9. Green Genes 3.40
10. Florentine 7.11
11 Andy 5.51
12 Inca 8.19
13 Sofa #1 2.49
-Who's been cutting?
-How come the 91 cut of Green Genes lasts as long as the '95 cut of Zoot, the 91 cut of Flo Po lasts as long as the 95 cut of Green Genes, etcetera?
-Is there any musical difference? There seemed nothing odd about the cutting of songs when I played it: There IS 8:19 minutes of Inca.
-Why did Kevin Courrier state there were no major alterations between the '91 and the '95 CD?
-Where's my Bolero?

The short answer is that they couldn't get the rights to have Bolero on the European copy. The long answer is here:

Thank you very much! I'll try to get my hands on a version with Bolero now!
