Zappadan 2011 (with complete Zappa discography)

1st Dec 11 (Thu) Leave a comment Go to comments

December 4th to 21st is Zappadan

In memory of Frank Zappa’s birth (Dec 21st, 1940) and his untimely death from prostate cancer (Dec 4th, 1993) – “Zappadan” is like Ramadan… but with more 32nd notes.  Start early, and listen to one Frank Zappa album a day for the month of December.  Dig through his vast collection and pull something out you maybe haven’t spun in a while.  I’ve got his most-complete discography below…

You can’t always write a chord ugly
enough to say what you want to say;
so sometimes you have to rely on a
giraffe filled with whipped cream.

    i need someone to please provide proof for me to convince others that peaches en regalia was indeed the first ever cd single ever released in 1983. i know this is a fact. seems other people have a problem believing me. can anyone help me find this proof please? i found copies of it from 87. thats not the one i am looking for as it is several years after dire straits cd single which is often called the first cd single. i know that fz’s was. if anyone can help me with my proof.. please send that proof to darthcdx@aol.com (darthcdx at aol dot com). thank u soooo much. btw.. this is a fantastic site. which is why im here.

      hmmm… no idea by me… I had a 3″ mini-CD single of something of FZ’s, and it very well may have been the 1983 PeR, but I can’t find it… :(
