Image fz on fillmore east '71, beetle sept-1971 wrote:
"... We recorded it June 6th and 7th at the Fillmore East in New York... I feel it was a very good release. I am pleased with the way it came out. We did it on 16 tracks and Barry Keene engineered it. The better cuts on the album were "Willie the Pimp" and "Peaches and Regatta [Peaches en Regalia]". It turned out very well.

The only real hassle was the fact that it was ready so quickly after the production. Usually there is a two or three month delay. We wanted to get it out fast and give the people north of the border a chance to get a look at it. We haven't heard the album yet, but we should hear the tapes tomorrow. I'll listen to it then." ...

Image fz on 200 motels, gold coast free press jan-05-1984 wrote:
"... I got a call from the Library of Congress two days ago, they wanted to use 200 Motels as a teaching device for film scoring for a course they're conducting. I told them I didn't own it, that United Artists owned it, so if they wanted to access to it, it had to come through them. That fell through because UA wanted to charge them too much money for access." ...

"... Some of them have been totally live, some have had orchestration added on. Fillmore East was about 90% pure live; Just Another Band From L.A. was 100%. That was a four-track recording right off the p.a." ...

"... I'm still wearing the brace and just recently I've been able to walk around without using the crutches so much. Waka/Jawaka was made in the studio while I was still in the wheel chair." ...

Image fz on the grand wazoo, beetle july 1973 wrote:
"...An example of that is my playing on "Eat That Question" from The Grand Wazoo. Actually, that was a badly recorded solo. It's pretty hard to really stretch out when you are confined to a wheelchair which I still was from the accident when I recorded that." ...

"... Well, what's wrong with "Dinah-Moe Hum?" I think its a very wholesome, conservative sort of appraisal of what was really going on." ...

Image fz on apostrophe ('), exit may 1974 wrote:
... The album’s been out three weeks and it’s sold 90,000 copies. It’s the fastest selling album that I’ve ever put out. And that’s partly because we’ve been touring extensively over the past year. Whenever you tour your record sells. We did over 100 concerts last year; a big touring schedule." ...

... "For instance the Roxy album was perhaps the most popular album we ever had in France ... It outsold everything we ever put out, and it's the only place in the world where it was really heavy." ...

Image fz on one size fits all, bugle american dec-17-1975 wrote:
... "Now, it baffles me that a person could listen to One Size Fits All, which I think is an excellent album, and get to that song [sofa] and say "It loses me." First of all, it has got a nice little tune. Second of all, the production on it is good. Third of all, I think the words are great, and especially funny if you think of them in the context of the rest of what's going on. But that aside." ...
