The Rock Years - Portrait of an Era

Zappa material: not known

This description from somewhere was forwarded by Robert Cloos:

Title: The Rock Years - Portrait of an Era (promo LP)
Catalog Number: L 3537
Date: 1980
Release Information: A promo LP for The Rock Years -Portrait of an Era radio show. Segments include Pink Floyd music.
Cover: Pictures of artists.
Label: Black "The Rock Years" demo label.

Zappa's picture appears on the cover, along with many other artists, so there is some reason to believe he may actually be on the record.

Barking Pumpkin Goes Digital

Unique material: ?

1. The Man from Utopia Meets Mary Lou
2. Cocaine Decisions

3. Mo & Herb's Vacation (3rd Movement)

This was a 12-inch radio promo, announcing that "all future products will be digital, with special releases on CD format as that technology becomes more available". The two songs on side one have been, in Frank's words, "re-tweezed with the digital machinery" [probably identical to the first (not second) CD remix of The Man from Utopia]. The front cover has the LSO cover photo of Zappa's face, with the title written in LCD characters. The back cover has the words "Demonstration Not For Sale" embossed in gold colour.

"Specialized Digital Audio Gratification" is a sampler of the frequently sought-after EMI discs, and often goes for ridiculous prices on eBay. Unfortunately, it's junk. Greg Russo writes:

GREG RUSSO: For all the tracks on that EMI promo, only one track of the two-track stereo mixes was used on both channels of the CD. Naturally, all the tracks sound different because half of their information is missing.

Ryan Davenport elaborates:

Greg Russo is right - all of the songs sound different because one channel is missing. I recorded snips from a couple of songs with Cool Edit Pro and then had a look at the waveforms, and all they've done to come up with a sort of a stereo effect is to duplicate one channel on to the other but they delayed one channel by a hundredth of a second - the waveforms are exactly the same on both channels, they're just .01 seconds apart. [And this is cheepnis here - Ed.] There is also a considerable difference on "Tinsel-Town Rebellion" - the first 61 seconds of the song have been cut. Don't know why, unless they wanted to remove the "cocks and balls" reference.  Funny, because the work "fuck" is still in "The Dangerous Kitchen". The disc is nowhere close to running out of room - it's only 67:58 long.

From Esgee:

As you will probably know as a fan, many of Zappa's album were briefly licensed to EMI UK in the late '80s. To celebrate this licensing coup, EMI issued this 15-track CD and gave copies of it to selected record stores to promote the full-album re-issues. This 15-track CD entitled Specialized Digital Audio Gratificaton comes in a slimline single plastic jewel case. The front of the inlay features Frank looking rather suave in a patterned white jacket, red scarf and wraparounds. He is holding a cigarette in his right hand. The front also carries the title plus the tagline "A limited edition promotion only CD containing a selection of tracks taken from nine Frank Zappa albums now available on CD". The rear of the inlay features the track listing in white on a red background. This inlay folds out to show a further track listing ... linked to the albums the cuts came from ... plus a small amount of blurb written by someone at EMI telling people what they were doing with the album issues.

From Kevin Lisankie:

Yes, it's a strange looking cover alright; that's because it was a joint venture of Rykodisc and TDK (the tape company). It was given away free in select packs of cassette tapes as a bonus. It's not an enhanced CD; "just" music. Includes full-color 1988 Ryko catalog/booklet.

From Dave Foster:

Steal This Disc and Here It Is, the Music are the exact same compilation. I have the Ryko Steal This Disc, and the lineup exactly matches the lineup listed for the latter. [This has been called into question - see Steal This Disc for details - Ed.]

Ryko Music Scene Inc PROM-1/D1277 (Japanese 3" CD promo, 1991)

1. Trouble Every Day
2. Cosmik Debris
3. Porn Wars

From Record Collector magazine #177, May 1994 (quoted by Mikael Agardsson):

This mega-rare (300 copies) Japanese only 3" CD has become a major Zappa collectable. And "Porn Wars" and "Trouble Every Day", it should be noted, are severly edited.

From Mikael Agardsson:

That's not quite true - "Trouble Every Day" is not edited, but "Porn Wars" is - 09:50 here, compared to the original 12:03. This edit fades out, so that the last word you hear is "boorish":

SENATOR GORTON: "Mr Zappa, I am astounded at the courtesy and soft-voiced nature of the comments of my friend, the senator from Tennessee. I can only say that I found your statement to be boorish ..."

By the way, the text on the T-shirt (see table to the right), not included on the single cover, says:

Once upon a time there was a guy who thought that music was important and that rock n' roll songs ought to say something different in their lyrics. So he wrote a few hundred of these items, trying to get his point across to the people in the U.S.A.

Twenty-five years later, most of the people in his own country had never heard any of his music (it had been systematically "removed" from the mainstream of American broadcasting and made mysteriously absent from many important retail outlets). But he kept on doing it anway because he believed that one day things would get better.

From Kristian Kier:

In the recent September issue of Oldie-Markt, a german record-collector magazine wich has tons of auctions running, there is a hit list of the 40 most expensive records they ever auctioned till beginning of 1994. Here are the top ten:

1. Dark: Round the Edges (SIS-0102, UK 1972) - 3600,30 DM
2. Bent Wind: Sussex (Trend T-1015, UK 1969) - 3256,33 DM
3. Elvis Presley: Golden Boy (RCA 25037, CH [?] 1965) - 2664,67 DM
4. Dog That Bit People: Dog That Bit People (Parlophone PCS 7125, UK 1971) - 2566,65 DM
5. Frank Zappa: FZ 25 - Zappaween (Ryko / Music Scene Inc. MSI PROM-1, Japan 1988 [error - 1991]) - 1854,16 DM
6. Can: Monster Movie (Music Factory SRS 001, Germany 1969) - 1780,11 DM
7. The Beatles: Impression (Deutsche Buchgemeinschaft Odeon 6086, Germany 1965) - 1734,82 DM
8. CA Quintet: Trip Thru Hell (Candy Floss CF 7764S, US 1964) - 1715,00 DM
9. Lang'syne: Lang'syne (DŘsselton TS 2737, Germany 1976) - 1652,65 DM
10. The Beatles: The Beatles (13-LP picture-disc box, London Wavelength (Limited Edition)) - 1638,60 DM

It's above as a 1988 release there, but we all know that the "FZ25" anniversary was in 1991.

(Kristian Kier comes back with an aside:

In the same issue there's a special about Alice Cooper. Here's an excerpt:

It's been proven that the first gig at the Cheeta Club on January 5th, 1968 (other sources report Santa Barbara, March 16th) took place as an Alice Cooper concert, and shortly thereafter the legendary farewell concert of Lenny Bruce took place, where the quintet managed to sour away 2000 people out of the club. Two guys who stayed there impressed were Frank Zappa and Shep Gordon. The former offered the band a record contract on his Straight label, the latter his management. Up to that point Furnier - to be named Alice Cooper from now on, even if it's the name of the whole band - and his boys weren't attracting attention in an optical way. But the lyrics were extraordinary above all. Even more curious was the making of their debut album, Pretties for You:

"We recorded our first album in November 1968. We went every day to the recording studio for one week, and played every song about four or five times, while Herb Cohen and Zappa were noodling the knobs in the control room. We thought we would just start to record the songs and experiment a little bit, when Zappa came out of the control room and said: 'Okay, your album will be ready next Thursday.' As I pointed out that we made many mistakes he only replied: 'We'll get it fixed with the mixing.' Five months later we heard the result for the first time."

Nevertheless the boys managed to reject Zappa's idea to rename the group to Alice Cookies, because he saw more a comedy troup in them.

And then there's a mention that probably the GTOs created the female image of the band, they liked to dress them up like Barbie dolls, somewhere in 1969. I hope my little translation is understandable ...)

Songs from the Sacred Napkin

Unique material: none

20. Cozmic Debris [sic]

This was a Ryko promo, representing their entire catalogue. The mislisted "Cosmik Debris" is the only Zappa track; it's the version from The Best Band You Never Heard in Your Life. (Apparently, the business plan for the Rykodisc record company was originally drawn on a napkin in a restaurant.) Other tracks include David Bowie's "The Man Who Sold the World", a reggae version of "Hotel California" and Jerry Jeff Walker's "Trashy Women".

15. America Drinks & Goes Home

Original versions of all tracks. You Can't Do That on the Radio Anymore first came in a black digipak with a booklet glued to the inside cover. (The booklet includes a few pages of CD and LP titles, a picture of Zappa and Chip Horaneck at a WMMR Halloween party and a track list.) Later, it was re-released in a green jewel case without booklet but with an insert under the tray. The cover has "YOU CAN'T DO THAT ON THE RADIO ANYMORE" in the You Can't Do That on Stage Anymore font, plus a picture of Zappa holding a radio to his ear.

The booklet proudly announces the impending release of Rykodisc titles like Sheik Yerbouti, Zoot Allures, and others.

Which versions of all of the tracks is currently up in the air. David G. elaborates:

"You Can't Do That on the Radio" theoretically pre-dates the '95 standardization of the catalogue under Ryko. The versions used on the disc vary wildly, though, and sometimes weirdly. "Don't Eat the Yellow Snow," "Be In My Video" and "Dinah-Moe Humm" are the versions from the Zappa Records CDs, with the attendant audio problems. Bizarrely enough, though, "Cosmik Debris" is a slight digital variation on the version which would later make an appearance on Ryko's 1995 disc, super-reverb and all. Where the heck did this come from?

(The vinyl and CD versions of Apostrophe (') are a little different - for example, there's two extra bars in the first verse of the CD version of "Don't Eat the Yellow Snow" that aren't in the LP version. But Ryko's audiophile special gold CD of Apostrophe (') used a different CD master, which was just like the vinyl master, so that CD had the original, a little bit shorter version of "Don't Eat the Yellow Snow". There has recently (May 1999) been rumoured that Ryko has switched to using that master for their regular Apostrophe (') CD as well - this hasn't been confirmed yet - but anyway, the version on Clean American Version is the original CD version, with the extra bars.)

This was a radio promo for the new Lost Episodes album: the liner notes say that "Not only does this shrewd promotional tool aid and abet the sale of Frank Zappa's "The Lost Episodes", but it reminds us that this is an election year.

99. Half a Dozen Provocative Squats

This is a promotional CD released just prior to the new 200 Motels CD release, 1997. As the CD package says:

Rykodisc and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. are proud to announce the long-awaited re-release of 200 Motels, the missing piece of the Frank Zappa catalog. These six songs will give you a good idea why 200 Motels has been the most sought-after title by legions of Zappa afficionados. From the compositional brilliance of "Semi-Fraudulent/Direct-from-Hollywood Overture" to the hard rocking satire of "Mystery Roach" and "Magic Fingers" (both of which feature the vocal gleam of Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan, AKA Flo & Eddie), 200 Motels is Zappa's sprawling tale of a rock and roll group on the road in the 1970s, told in every musical genre the man ever worked in. Remastered from the original analog tape Zappa delivered in 1971 to United Artists Pictures, now a subsidiary of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc., the digital debut of 200 Motels appears on a double disc, complete with bonus audio and visual material. To hear 200 Motels in all its sonic glory (and without those annoying popcorn sounds of scratchy vinyl) is perhaps just shy of a religious epiphany. So sit back and pop this into your CD machine. Who knows, there may even be a bonus waiting to be found ...

From David A Sage:

There is a bonus track hidden way down at the end of the CD, after close to 100 blank "tracks" of some number of seconds. The bonus track is, of course, "Half a Dozen Provocative Squats". There is a still of Miss Lucy and Janet from the movie on the cover of the CD.

Miss Lucy and Janet have word balloons that say:

"Janet! Did you see those guys over there with the hair?"
"Pop stars are so depressing when they been on the road for a long time and they finally get some action ..."

14. Valley Girl (04:50)
15. Blessed Relief (07:59) [CD only]

A UK promo. From Kristian Kier:

an AUTHORIZED FRANK ZAPPA DEALER stickerIn the "liner notes" there is something mentioned about "Authorized Frank Zappa Dealer campaign to run indefinitely with a series of posters, postcards, special promo CD's, stickers and other desireable paraphernalia." So what makes a dealer an authorized Zappa dealer? Are there any stores with that label?

From the Grand Wazoo:

I once saw the LP version of the promo record No Commercial Potential here in Paris. The track listing is the same, but it was pressed on purple semi-translucent vnyl.

This LP version is probably a counterfeit, although it's raison d'ŕtre then is beyond me. Kristian Kier found it at a record show in November 1999:

The same as the official promo CD, with the last track ("Blessed Relief") omitted. The enumeration on the back side of the sleeve is in the same way as the CD, so not telling what's on side one and what's on side two. It's just listing the songs from 1 to 14.

The record is pink vinyl, with blank white labels. The cover art is taken directly from the CD, without the mentioning of track 15 and the "Compact Disc Digital Audio" logo. If you look closer at the printing you'll notice it's a little bit "unsharp". Also, the cover is not as bright yellow as the original CD, it tends a little bit to orange.

It still has the Ryko/FZ logo, along with the old ordering number ZAP1, which makes it look like a legit release. But this is obviously a counterfeit of the promo CD.

A promotional EP with Sheik Yerbouti material. It came in a black & white sleeve with a small picture of Zappa from the Sheik Yerbouti cover.

From Tom Maguire:

One of the wildest audiophile quality surprises was the "Clean Cuts" 4-song radio play sampler of Sheik Yerbouti. I always wanted another copy. White cover with black printing.

That's right, he said "four-song" - he was pretty certain that his copy had had

1. Flakes
2. Whatever Happened to All the Fun in the World?
3. Rat Tomago
4. Dancin' Fool

- "I would not bet my life on it ... the grooves were pretty wide for that many songs. I could be wrong, it's
happened before." Of course, there may also have been two versions.

From Mewler:

From 1982, this is a 12" radio-only Zappa promo with 3 tracks from Shut Up & play Yer Guitar. The realy cool thing about this is the letter on the front from Frank pleading with whoever finds this record at the radio station not to throw it in the garbage can.

Welcome to Joe's Garage

Unique material: none

  1. Joe's Garage
  2. Central Scrutinizer

A promotional EP with Joe's Garage material. It came in a black & white sleeve with Zappa's picture on it - the Joe's Garage cover picture pasted onto a hand-drawn gas pump. Sometimes confused with the Zappa Records MK 129 issue, which also has Joe's Garage material.

Zappa Records MK 129

Unique material: none

1. Joe's Garage (6:10)
2. Wet T-Shirt Nite (5:26)
3. Lucille Has messed My Mind Up (7:17)
4. A Token of My Extreme (5:28)
5. He Used to Cut the Grass (8:34)
6. Watermelon in Easter Hay (10:00)

A promotional EP with Joe's Garage material. (I've seen pictures of the cover, small ones, where I couldn't read a title. I've held a copy in a record store, but that was long ago.) The cover is black, has small insets of the Joe's Garage Act I and Acts II-III cover pictures (in black and white) and song titles. 

Sometimes confused with the Welcome to Joe's Garage promo (hopefully, MK 129 was not called "Welcome to Joe's Garage" as well). (The number 126 has also been reported.) From Michael J Popil:

I almost paid $25 for it back in the early '90s ... thought better (about things like food, gas, and rent), and left it on the shelf at my favourite used record store. A few months later, my former place of employment had a record sale to get rid of all their ugly, stinky, useless, vinyl. "The Great CFUN / QM-FM Record Sale" was on ... take your turn ... as many as you could carry ... one at a time in the basement, please. My instincts found MK-129 in a matter of minutes, along with a few other collectable non-Zappa morsels, for the price of ... wait for it ... 10 cents each.

The cover is black with white lettering. Small pictures, in black and white, of the album covers appear, along with song titles and times, in hap-hazard placement. The reverse side is blank.

MaJohn Buu adds some comments:

It's a simple sleeve too. One side is just plain white, and the other (which has the text and picture's on it) is completely black. There's a little picture of Act I's cover by the songs listed on Side A, and small picture of Act II & III's cover on the listings for Side B. At the Bottom, it says quite clearly 'NOT FOR SALE', since it was only meant to be a promotional item.

The Man from Utopia Promo

May or may not be related to the above sampler. From RIFF RAFF FROM MICHIGAN:

I don't remember if I ever mentioned this before, but there was a promotional vinyl issue of The Man From Utopia on the Barking Pumpkin label (not CBS). It came in a white sleeve with small reproductions of the front and back cover art (in black & white, I think). The label was the regular Barking Pumpkin logo, in color, with black lettering. There were only short samples of each song, not full-length cuts ... with no silence between the cuts, if I remember. The record store I worked at when I was a kid had a copy of this promo vinyl. I borrowed it for a few days, then returned it ... I should have kept it!!! Zoot.

THING FISH / THEM OR US Promo

Unique material: none

1. Be in My Video
2. He's So Gay
3. Won Ton On

4. The Closer You Are
5. Whipping Post
6. Planet of My Dreams

Original vinyl mixes, of course, except "Won Ton On", which is the version from the maxi single True Glove - a totally different version - like a whole new song:

  1. It's longer (05:48, compared to 04:17 on the 1995 Thing-Fish CD);
  2. Zappa has removed all the non-backwards vocals from Thing-Fish, except some of the weeping;
  3. Johnny "Guitar" Watson's voiceover from the Thing-Fish CD version of "He's So Gay" (not on the LP) has been added instead!

And as if that weren't enough, it's a different edit of the Watson track:

WON TON ON (this promo)

HE'S SO GAY (THING-FISH CD)

Yes, he is.
I guess he likes it.
Yeah.

You Can't Sheik Yerbouti on a Ship Arriving Too Late

Unique material: none

From Jim Kelly:

This was the title of a Barking Pumpkin sampler cassette I once had. It was approximately 9 minutes per side and was intended, or so it said, for radio airplay! That is, it was for DJs only. It combined tracks from Sheik Yerbouti, Ship Arriving Too Late and Stage #4. If I remember correctly, the tracks were these:

1. Dancin' Fool
2. Jewish Princess
3. Flakes
4. Bobby Brown
5. Take Me Out to The Ball Game

1. Valley Girl
2. The Torture Never Stops (Original Version)

The versions here were the CD versions - no new mixes, sorry. This promo cassette had a blue cardboard J-card and blue paper labels on the cassette itself. It also said "Don't Forget - Register To Vote!" and asked the listener not to take the music too seriously: "Laughter helps."

Play Fast Forward

Unique material: none
Zappa material: "Dupree's Paradise", "The Perfect Stranger" and "Get Whitey"

From Tony Burke:

In February, March and April of 1998 the Britten Sinfonia played three concerts called The Fathers of Invention in Cambridge, UK. To promote the three concerts the Cambridge Corn Exchange issued a special promo CD called Play Fast Forward which featured three Zappa tracks: "Dupree's Paradise" and "The Perfect Stranger" from Boulez Conducts Zappa: The Perfect Stranger, and "Get Whitey" from The Yellow Shark. All were licensed from Ryko. Other stuff was by Conlon Nancarrow, Stravinsky, Reich, two tracks to promote a Women in Africa concert and "Blood on the Floor" (Turnage).

When asked about the Cambridge Corn Exchange, he said:

It was where corn and other goods used to be sold and exchanged around 100 to 150 years ago! Most cities have these buildings - they became general trading places, many were disused and most cities have turned them into venues or theatres or museums.
