Nurse With Wound List

"You Can't Do That on Stage Anymore, Vol. 3 is a double disc collection of live recordings by Frank Zappa, spanning from December 10, 1971 to December 23, 1984. It was released in 1989.
"Sharleena" had been previously issued as a flexi disc in Guitar Player magazine. All the songs on disc one are by the 1984 band (except for brief segments of "Drowning Witch" edited in from the 1982 tour). Disc two includes performances from various years including a section of "King Kong" taken from the December...

"Many Zappa aficionados consider his backing band on the 1978 live release ZAPPA IN NEW YORK to be one of his finest. After all, the group included future Missing Persons/UK drummer Terry Bozzio, Jethro Tull/Roxy Music/UK keyboardist/violinist Eddie...

"Childhood friends and fellow rock visionaries Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart put aside their differences to tour the U.S. together in the spring of 1975. The resulting shows found them both in superb form, as evidenced by this legendary set, preserved in superb fidelity and finally available on CD again, complete with background notes."

This great release of very, very early Mothers material was bought by me from the ZFT when it first came out. It's quite fabulous!

"Joe's Corsage is a CD of material recorded by Frank Zappa with The Mothers of Invention in the mid-1960s, before the recording of their debut album Freak Out! (1966). The album was compiled by archivist...

This has one disc of the 1981/82 band:
Ray White – guitar, vocals
Steve Vai – guitar
Tommy Mars – keyboards, vocals
Scott Thunes – bass guitar
Chad Wackerman – drums
Ed Mann – percussion
Bobby Martin – saxophone, vocals, keyboards
the last track on this CD ends with Zappa's anger at some audience members tossing cigarettes on stage; after a warning to stop was not obeyed, the disc ends with Zappa stating, "Houselights! Concert's over!"
and one disc of the origin

This 1993 release is a pretty wonderful archival release of the Mother's 1968 appearance at the Royal Festival Hall with members of the BBC Symphony Orchestra. They do a 30' 'operetta' that was probably great to see, but hasn't aged so well for me, and...

The very first album by Frank and the Mothers, recorded in early 1966. I'm not actually that big of a fan of this album, considering how much I love what came next, but it's still a really brave, striking and unique album for 1966.

"One of the most ambitious debuts in rock history, Freak Out! was a seminal concept album that somehow foreshadowed both art rock and punk at the same time. Its four LP sides deconstruct rock conventions right and...

This is actually a big deal, as it is the ORIGINAL 1968 mix of the album "Cruising With Rueben & The Jets", without the horrible 80s overdubs that were on the CD of the same title. ALL Mothers fans NEED this.

Previously only available from the ZFT (tm tm tm), I am personally extremely happy to be able to offer this small treasure up. I bought it from the ZFT and paid much more than this!

"In 2008, Frank Zappa’s Masterworks “Lumpy Gravy” & “We’re Only In It For The Money” turned 40 years old. To mark the occasion, the Zappa Family Trust put together an anniversary edition of their Project/ Object Audio Documentary series entitled “LUMPY MONEY.” This extensive release contains unique and rare versions...

Sorry we are late on stocking this, but the hype supplied by the Zappa Family Trust was so UNinformative that I couldn't tell if this 'audio documentary' was just a bunch of talking or something similarly unattractive. It isn't. It's the original stereo..

"The Road Tapes Series focuses on audio from the Vault that is historical yet sonically less than stellar. Described by the man himself as "Guerilla Recordings," Frank Zappa tried to document every performance. “Road Tapes, Venue #1,” 1st in the series, takes us to summertime ‘68, Vancouver, B.C., where the Mothers...

The final Mothers album was this fantastic but strange collection of unreleased studio and (mostly live) work from 1967-1969, contained in one of the greatest and most shocking rock and roll album covers of all time (rzzz!)...

Why was I not surprised to see this placed prominently on the box: "This film is not authorized by the estate or family of Frank Zappa"? Anyway, as a huge fan of the Mothers of Invention this was interesting for me to see and you get lots of...

"Analog transfer 2012 by Joe Travers and re-mastered by Doug Sax 2012. All track times identical to the Ryko version but audibly different." What does this mean? It means I'm gonna take it home this weekend and give it a good, hard listen!...

5{L FORM, this was one of the strangest record in a catalog of strange records. It was recorded simultaneously with Uncle Meat and featured the 8 piece Mothers performing doo-wop music that seemed fairly straight-forward on first listen and...

This seems to be all/almost all previously unreleased materials 1968-1971, including some of Frank 'noodling' in his basement. Most interestingly, the 1971 material, by the 'Flo & Eddie' band, features that great band without the vocalists, just...

This was the album that introduced me to 'funny music' and literally changed my life and is why I am at the computer writing descriptions of music to you and releasing records by other 'funny music' artists over 40 years later. I distinctly remember...
