Hey folks, have been a fan since the seventh grade (1969)when I traded John Lennon's Life With The Lions for FZ's Absolutely Free. Have been a hard core fan since. Only got to see Frank live five times (six, if you count the two back to back shows on one night) when I came of age in Austin,Texas. Regretfully, never saw him with Ian Underwood. I am finally buying Zappa on CD and am dividing my purchases between classics and the flood of posthumous work coming from Ryko etc. Here's my 1st question- I bought the Lather box set. When playing it on my PC, often the titles appearing are not actually those playing. Is this an FZ joke from the grave? I remember when first obtaining Absolutely Free on vinyl, experiencing my frustration in that the grooves that usually separated the tracks were offset making it impossible to start a compostion on cue- later on I would laugh thinking this was FZ's way of fucking with the DJs and making you listen to his work by the side/concept rather than by the single. Question 2- Anybody know of any interesting sources for Ian Underwood or Don Preston? I have been to Don's site, emailing himn from there has provoked no response. I would like to order some of his and Bunk Gardners CDs but do not want to send money if the operation is defunct. Question 3- what is a vine? Question 4- any Varese fan's out there? I see on Overstock.com that there will be a Varese biography available there soon.
