Then and Now – January 31, 2008

Residing in my happy rut of '70s/'80s Zappa music for so long before I started doing the show, I hadn't realized the intensity with which a substantial portion of the FZ community beholds Early Frank. So many of the requests are for '60s-era tunes, or what I think of as Frank's first drafts.

You know I love the versioning... You seem not to mind, either. Hey, as long as it's Frank music, what could go wrong?

So, for the Feb. 1, 2008 Zappa's Grubby Chamber, let's try playing the early versions of various songs, and then the later iterations. So many to choose from... "Ain't Got No Heart," "Brown Shoes," "Cruising for Burgers," "King Kong..."

And whatever you think up!
