Re: [Zappa-List] old Mothers albums mixes

2011-12-16 Thread duckbite
Just to chime in here, I prefer the otriginal mix of Cruisin over the  
CD version but I listen to the CD version many times more.  Also, take  
Hot Rats for example.  I listen to the CD so many more times but  
whenever I get to hear the LP version it is almost like I'm  
discovering a new version never heard before.
I don't dislike the Chad Wackerman drumming but I like the  
older/original better.  If I could choose, I'd rather the ZFT spend  
more time releasing unheard of stuff, like the Carnegie LP instead of  
remixing LPs I already have.
Having typed that I'll sign off wishing you all a Merry Christmas and  
a Happy Zappadan.

  Quoting JACK OONK jco...@ameritech.net:

 This List isn't dead, it just smells funny...
 Your question as it wasn't, kinda puts you in a category. There  
 seem to be 2 different campswith regard to the early recordings  
 and their subsequent remixes (and both can be quite rabid): those  
 who prefer the former, and those who prefer the latter.
 I actually like (and own) both, and cannot say that I prefer one  
 over the other.
 I know, a chumps way out, but it's true.
