Thank You !!!!

I have the other orig.80's lp Boots made by a guy named "Richard"...I've been looking for this awhile...very rare in orig LP format...sells for about $350 on Ebay (not bad considering)...it pissed Zappa off BIG TIME



from Zappa Patio website:

NTB Records was one of many labels set up by a very major bootlegger, identified in the book BOOTLEG by Clinton Heylin as "Richard", and "Next to the Beatles, his great love was the cantankerous Frank Zappa". "Richard in his time was to be responsible for one ten-album set, one four-album set and ten single [Zappa] albums, including the legendary 'Tis the Season to be Jelly". (The ten-album set is the Mystery Box, but the other albums are never identified.) He is quoted (on page 195) as saying:

I'm a big Zappa fan. In fact my Mystery Box got Zappa as upset as Columbia got over Ten of Swords [a Bob Dylan bootleg]. Zappa in America has a hotline for his fans to call and he went so far as to have the woman who does the hotline ask for help in tracking down the perpetrators of this heinous boxed-set, and Zappa called the FBI and the FBI didn't want to be bothered ... I guess the problem was that Zappa was doing his You Can't Do That on Stage Anymore, his ongoing series that has just ended, and Mystery Box was a giant You Can't Do That on Stage Anymore. A lot of reviews were saying that Mystery Box was better because it was chronological and didn't jump all over the place and didn't have all these stupid edits in it. That kind of thing can annoy you if you're an artist putting out your own thing ... Zappa's reasoning behind that was that he was losing tons of money and in fact he wasn't losing any money. Most people who do Zappa bootlegs do so because they like Zappa. They don't do it for the money. I can imagine people making money off a lot of other bootlegs but not Zappa.

Thank you for this great seed! I transferred my boxed set to album sides but didn't go so far as to tackle the individual track separations (...and the transfer was done using a cheapo Crosley player/recorder which left a distinct "whine" at the beginning of each recording)...this is SO much better than what I did! Thank you, jorodolfo!!!

I,too, have the vinyl box! Still pull it out from time to time. Whenever I decide to listen to YCDTOSA, I usually span thru all six volumes (12 discs) over the course of several days. I've only done that once with the Mystery Box, when I first got it in the early 90s. Thank you for a new opportunity to go thru this whole box whilst driving in my car! Thanks so much!!
