DEAD LINKS

NOTE : DEAD LINKS
We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

FRANK ZAPPA (ABO#100)

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY BAISTOPHE !
THIS IS BAISTOPHE #100




... What could have we done better to celebrate this anniversary. Today is a special day because this will be a triple baistophe !

The man we are dealing with is something like the best, the smarter, the funnier musician ever. That genious was a huge fan of Vartese and did mostly anything in music : classical, jazz, rock, hard, blues, electro, hip hop, reggae, ... everything ! His genious can be recognisable as he made 3, 4, and sometimes 5 albums per year ! So how could have we managed to sum up such a prolific discography in a reduced compilation ?




JAZZ IS NOT DEAD IT JUST SMELLS FUNNY





ABO#100a : JAZZ

This first part brings all together the best jams made by the master of the guitar. For those who don't know the man and want to discover him, I just advise them that this music sometimes is difficult to appreciate.





My 3 favourite Frank Zappa Jazz albums :
1. The Grand Wazoo (1973)
2. Waka Jawaka (1972)
3. Zappa In New York (1977)






ABO#100b : IS NOT DEAD

This second part is just like a conventional compilation, gathering the best "single-able" songs Frank ever made. This compilation is, in the contrary of the first, much more affordable to a unexperimented ear.






My 3 favourite Frank Zappa conventional albums :
1. One Size Fits All (1975)
2. Over-Nite Sensation (1973)
3. Absolutely Free (1967)






ABO#100c : IT JUST SMELLS FUNNY

This last one will please many people as it is a compilation that brings together some of the funniest songs. Humour or cinism was one of the favourite expressions used by Zappa. This third baistophe will enlight any morose day. Special mention for 'In France' : that's so true ^^






My 3 favourite Frank Zappa funny Albums :
1. We're Only In It For The Money (1967)
2. Roxy And Elsewhere (1974)
3. The Best Band You Never Heard In Your Life (1991)
