Thursday Mix: Mothers Auxiliary

weaselscs

When one thinks of the ever expanding web of musicians who both directly played with Frank Zappa, then those who have then played with those musicians in turn, it’s not very surprising the enormous effect that FZ had on the musical forms and musicians with which he came into contact. Just check out my own personal sampling of Zappa alumni, along with those who have recorded and performed live with him in my mixtape, “Thursday Mix: Mothers Auxiliary”, to get your own idea.

Perhaps now that Zappanale successfully fought off the ZFT’s ill-conceived litigation, we just might see some of the names in this mixtape perform at the Zappanale in the coming years?

    That’s the first time I heard the original version of ‘Dead Girls Of London’, …cool!

    Is it the original? Always believed that it was the version on the original Låther with Van Morrison on vocals. Anyone know for sure?

    Van Morrison was brought in first to do the vocals on “Dead Girls of London”, but then because of contractual problems (Van Morrison’s label wouldn’t allow his vocals to be released under Barking Pumpkin), so at the last minute Frank Zappa and Ike Willis over-dubbed Van Morrison’s vocals so that the record could be released.

    Furthermore to what urbangraffito said, which is true, it wasn’t recorded until after L(e)ather had been assembled.

    Jamez above is a positive example that not every Zappa fan owns or has heard tons and tons of bootlegs.
