Son of Tweezer Glint – Part 1B

Welcome fellow KUR-meisters to the second installment of the “Son of Tweezer Glint – Part 1B.” In this installment, we hear unique versions of Mothers of Invention songs, the singles, as well as early edits of songs which would see major changes in later remixes. For some, a pleasant trip back to original vinyl collections, while for others, especially new fans of FZ and the M.O.I., a real audio treat. Also in this installment, demo (acetate) versions from Uncle Meat and We’re Only In It For The Money. Finally, a smattering of extended versions, longer edits, and proto versions to give a taste of what is forthcoming in the final four parts of the series.

(Note: each part in the series will be up for a two week period. Next installment: September 17th.)

Much thanks to gundamcustom for supplying the much improved audio version of “Dead Girls of London (Van Morrison, vocals)”.

Sunday Mix: Music Is The Best


Well, Zappa freaks, fans, and friends, you may not be able to download it from iTunes, yet you can still listen to my mixtape, “Sunday Mix: Music Is The Best” for free, here at KUR, and enjoy the various rare and interesting FZ field recordings, as well as early 45 versions of songs (before many were remixed beyond recognition), while you celebrate what would have been Frank’s 68th birthday. I think I’m going to chow down on a muffin, myself.
