Dear god, let me make one post that isn’t about p*dc*st*ng! I saw this detailed post about “Peaches en Regalia”, possibly my favorite Frank Zappa song and possibly the most beautiful melody I’ve ever heard (on some days, I’m inclined to give that to the “Pursuance” from A Love Supreme). There’s lots of discussion of the song, including links to a version Phish does! Wow. I downloaded it and while I’m not a huge Phish fan, they sound pretty good playing Zappa. I just brought the 5 double CDs I have from the You Can’t Do That On Stage Anymore series into my office. I might need to reacquaint myself with a little Zappa. And why do I only have 5? There were at least 6 in the series. Did I run out of steam and forget to purchase the rest?
