few seconds, a blast of sweet sounds will come from your speakers, so you might
want to get ready and adjust the volume now.
In 2007 I
published my first two books. My first book, "HUNGRY FREAKS, DADDY the
Recordings of FRANK ZAPPA and The Mothers Of Invention Volume One 1959-1969", is
the first of what will be an eight-volume series documenting the recorded
documents of FZ from his earliest recordings (dating back to 1959) to his final
recorded work (in 1993) and beyond. The second volume in my Zappa series is
"Strictly Genteel", which covers the work of my personal American Idol from 1970
through the end of 1971. In 2008 I published a supplementary volume to the first
two books, featuring articles relevant to the Recordings Of Frank Zappa series
but not included in those books (mainly for space reasons). Volume three of the
books series, "Blessed Relief" (2009) has just been published and is
available to order now. Still deciding what's next, so as soon as I
figure it out, I'll let you know here. Stay tuned!
My books are self-financed and self-published (at least for now). This gives me
the ability to create a book that I would want to see rather than a compromised
book such as that which I would have with a major publisher.
This is what you would call a "utilitarian" site at the moment (I like that
term), but it will grow and develop over time.
Once again, WELCOME and thanks for stopping by!!
