New CD Releases From Former Zappa Members

Aah press releases! They make posting here easy as pie. This one comes to us from Crossfire Publications. Bring on the quotation machine:

On the record label front, Crossfire has lined-up rare, archival releases by former Frank Zappa and the Mothers Of Invention members, such as Jimmy Carl Black, Don Preston and Bunk Gardner. When Do We Get Paid?, an archival collection of Jimmy Carl Black “the Indian Of The Group” rarities, was originally released in the UK in 1996. Crossfire head honcho Greg Russo has remastered and re-EQ’d the original recordings making them sound better than ever! The CD also includes three bonus tracks. Other CDs in the Crossfire catalogue include two rare compilations by surf music giants The Tornadoes, Now And Then and Charge Of The Tornadoes (some of the recordings were engineered by music genius Frank Zappa). Crossfire has released the Neonfire CD featuring Candy Zappa (Frank’s little sister), Nolan Porter, Napoleon Murphy Brock (Zappa vocalist extraordinaire) and Andre Cholmondeley (of Project Object) amongst others.

… In the works:

[…] an exciting release schedule for 2007, which includes ex-Zappa frontman Bob Harris’s The Great Nostalgia from 1986, which features guest performances by guitar virtuoso Steve Vai. Nolan Porter has two upcoming Crossfire releases No Apologies and Nolan (containing the Northern soul classics “If I Could Only Be Sure” and “Keep On Keeping On” – these have been in great demand in British clubs for years), whilst sister of music icon Frank Zappa, Candy Zappa’s future Crossfire CD is entitled My Brother Was A Mother.

… And finally:

soon to be available from Crossfire, the legendary Paul Buff’s PAL Studio recordings with Frank Zappa and many others – seven releases in all!

  1. I had never heard of Candy Zappa– What type of stuff does she do? “My brother was a mother” I love the title.

  2. Have a sweet cover somewhere of “Evelyn, A Modified Dog” where Candy Zappa does the vocal … pretty darn cute.

    If I was a musical Darwinist, I’d say FZ is beginning to look like a REAL Yellow Shark … uh, or is that mud-shark?
