zappadan is nigh

what the hullaballoo all about? why frank zappa?

please give blue gal a listen

the year was 1966...i was three years into the beatles, sam and dave, paul butterfield blues band, muddy waters, howlin' wolf. the grateful dead and the allman brothers band were three years down the road. what happened? my brother and i made a trip to ames, iowa, to eschbach's music store, main street ames, where they sold pianos, organs, trombones, sheet music, and other weird crap of all musical sorts.
what, on this particular saturday, did my sixteen year-old brother and me, his thirteen year-old sidekick, choose to buy?

and what track had the longest-lasting effect on me?

miracles DO happen!!
