Frank Zappa Birthday Bundle

"Rhythmatist" is sophisticated, musically sound and creative. It's interesting, clever and even a bit humorous. Diva Zappa, if that's who sings lead on "Girlie Woman" and "When the Ball Drops," can't sing. Except for the Zappa name, I can't understand why they even wasted studio time on that weak, out of tune, and phony-sounding voice. Is she like 3 years old? Even then, it might be alright to use her songs at home for those who know and love her, but it shouldn't have been dispersed to the world. Give me more of those great instrumentals and creative arrangements any day. Keep the Diva at home.

Good to see....

FZ back on iTunes, albeit only five songs. Once upon a time, iTunes offered about 50 of the master's albums... but I guess the 'estate' was not happy with the financial arrangement or something? They pulled them. Sad.

I say "Bring back Frank to iTunes, Zappa family". Give fans a legal alternative to get his music on demand... People will pay to download. But -- asking top dollar prices on the zappa site for 20 year old music and making fans wait forever to get it... not to mention the passé practice of paying for snail-mail shipping of cardboard and plastic... it is so... archaic and inconvenient. Sadly, you are encouraging pirating.

Great googalie-moogalie, zappas -- smallish royalties are better than the zero royalties you get from 'peer-to-peer pirates', right? The future is now, and old school record sales are dying. Swiftly. Get with the program. Downloads on demand (aka iTunes) are destined to kill peer-to-peer pirating.
