  1. Looks very fun! I’ll give it a spin later after work.

    I wish Duke would rerelease “Feel” separate from the boxset. At least do an download only sale….he must know there is a huge Zappa fan market for that stuff! 😉

  2. Hey, this is good! With some REAL surprises! Like Solitude!!! Or Project Object: I’m not the biggest fan of them, but this acoustic thing.. nice!!! Do it, Mr. DeeJay!!!
