"One Size Fits All" released #OnThisDay in 1975. The album features one of FZ's most complex songs "Inca Roads". According to FZ's liner notes, the basic tracks for "Inca Roads" and "Florentine Pogen" were recorded live at KCET TV Los Angeles during the production of the "Token Of His Extreme" TV special. The guitar solo in Inca Roads was recorded live during a 1974 concert in Helsinki, Finland. The bulk of the album was recorded between December 1974 and April 1975 - during sessions which simultaneously produced the studio tracks on "Bongo Fury". This is Official Release #20. What's your favorite track on the album? http://bit.ly/2sxlNVn

It's the 50th Anniversary of Captain Beefheart's "Trout Mask Replica" - released #OnThisDay in 1969! Produced by Beefheart's friend and former schoolmate Frank Zappa, it was originally released as a double album on Zappa's Straight Records label. Combining elements of R&B, garage rock, blues, avant-garde, free jazz and other genres of American music, the album is regarded as an important work of experimental music and art rock. On April 6, 2011, the album was added to the United States National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress. The album was reissued on vinyl this year by Bizarre/Third Man Records! Tell us about your love for this masterpiece!

"You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore, Vol. 4" released #OnThisDay in 1991. The album is a two-CD set of live recordings by FZ, captured between 1969 and 1988. "This series has taken more than 20 years to put together. It provides a comprehensive collection of unreleased live material (absolutely no overdubs), beginning with the earliest tapes (7½ ips analog two-track), up to the most recent material from the 1988 big-band tour (48 track digital). "Great care has been taken to ensure the best audio quality, however, some early selections by the original Mothers Of Invention, though not exactly 'hi-fi,' have been included for the amusement of those fetishists who still believe that the only 'good' material was performed by that particular group. (Comparison to the performances of some of the later ensembles should finally put an end to that quaint fantasy.)" — FZ's liner notes. This is Official Release #56.

“A composer's job involves the decoration of fragments of time. Without music to decorate it, time is just a bunch of boring production deadlines or dates by which bills must be paid.” -FZ (from The Real Frank Zappa Book, 1989) #FrankFriday #Zappa #Quotes #Wisdom #time #composer

"One Shot Deal" released #OnThisDay in 2008. This posthumous release is a collection of two "build reels" constructed by FZ (tracks 1-4 and tracks 8-9), along with the track "Occam's Razor", a guitar solo extract from a live version of the song "Inca Roads". This solo was used in the song "On The Bus" from the album Joe's Garage (1979). All of these tracks are just as we found them in the Vault, and were Produced/Recorded/Composed/Arranged/Conducted/ Constructed/Mixed by FZ and set aside by him for some project about which we can only speculate. This is Official Release #83. What's your favorite track on this album? http://bit.ly/2siBBvw

"London Symphony Orchestra, Vol. I" released #OnThisDay in 1983. It features the LSO performing four of FZ's instrumental compositions: "Sad Jane", "Pedro's Dowry", "Envelopes", and "Mo 'n Herb's Vacation" — from sessions recorded in January 1983. The album was recorded using a digital 24-track recorder and was one of the earliest digital multitrack recordings of an orchestra. This is Official Release #38. What's your favorite piece from this album? (London Symphony Orchestra, Vol. I was later combined with its successor London Symphony Orchestra, Vol. II (1987) and remixed and remastered for the combined London Symphony Orchestra, Vol. I & II release in 1995.) http://bit.ly/2r8BcMM

"The most important thing in art is The Frame. For painting: literally; for other arts: figuratively–because, without this humble appliance, you can't know where The Art stops and The Real World begins." –FZ, The Real Frank Zappa Book, 1989 #FrankFriday #Zappa #quotes #RealFZBook

"This was put together with my own money and my own time and it's been offered to television networks and to syndication and it has been steadfastly rejected by the American television industry. It has been shown in primetime in France and Switzerland, with marvelous results. It's probably one of the finest pieces of video work that any human being has ever done. I did it myself. And the animation that you're gonna see in this was done by a guy named Bruce Bickford, and I hope he is watching the show, because it's probably the first time that a lot of people in America got a chance to see it."- FZ speaking about "A Token Of His Extreme" on the Mike Douglas Show, 1976 "A Token Of His Extreme" (DVD) released #OnThisDay in 2013. The performance was recorded on August 27, 1974 at KCET, Los Angeles, California. Although this is the same performance and master source as most of the material on Dub Room Special, this release is an entirely different mix. Official Zappa Release #97.

“I would say that today, dishonesty is the rule, and honesty the exception. It could be, statistically, that more people are honest than dishonest, but the few that really control things are not honest, and that tips the balance.” –FZ The Real Frank Zappa Book, 1989 #FrankFridays

The Telegraph says "the sense of Zappa’s presence was genuinely strong, not just through the use of his vocals and guitar solos, but because he was such an original artist who imprinted his personality on the people who played his ridiculously inventive material with him. For several sections, the astonishingly gifted band took over completely, playing ridiculously convoluted pieces with a glee that had band members laughing and the audience whooping in delight."
