    The link is not working for me, which is such a shame. I’m listening to Volume II right now and having a blast with it! It’s introducing me to a lot of Zappa’s work that I perhaps wouldn’t have gotten around to, and now I plan on buying more of his catalog. There are some interesting looking instrumentals that I haven’t heard on Volume I as well; is there any chance I could still get my hands on it?

    Any chance you could reup the links for both volumes?


  3. Mauricio says:

    I want both of them again, please!!!

  4. I could dig into this list and I will. Good work.

  5. Most people thought of Zappa as a sort of comedy act – he was overlooked when people thought of great guitarists. Zappa was one of the best guitar players in rock history – he even was an influence on Jimi Hendrix! Thanks for posting.
