The other point I would make is that without Thr Captain John French has not pruduced a single piece of music of any note


what about his solo album City of Refuge?

Exactly who has listened to that more than once? Look he is a fine drummer and arranger but Don was the creative force and that’s were the meagre rewards go its the way of the world. Don produced many songs without John French organising the band for him. Given the way the music biZ was in the 70s and 60s I think a minority avantgarde act like captain Beafheart and the Magic Band would have been lucky to stay solvent let alone make any dough, similarly subsequent rereleases would be lucky to cover cost. I am sure that John French has made some money touring the Captains work over the years wonder if he has paid any dues to the estate?

It's kind of rediculous that one had to subscribe to some dubious marketing company to have the opportunity to acquire the way-cool Trout Mask Replica 50th anniversary album. I would like to see this album made available to majority of fans out there.

P.S. It was fast what they pulled and way too bulbous to swallow. I don't dig Third Man.


Maybe that's the agreement that GZ/AZ had with JW for a very limited run.

It's not the 50th Anniversary. That is next year. I'm sure that will not be missed. Wait it out.

^^and: Thanks, GM, for the interesting pressing/plates info above. From what I remember it is one of those vinyl vs. digital publishing issues. But then the ZFT seemed to back off of ANYTHING. Letting the CD go quickly out-of-print. Who the heck knows what it is all about. Warner-Rhino last VINYL press was 2016, I think. NO CD has been issued since the 2013 ZFT. Which sorta makes this never-been-out-of-print oddball classic now a not-so-readily-available oddball classic.^^


It's all marketing. Let the public mouths water for a bit. Then lay it on them in some nifty packaging for a hefty price...

Nicely stated, DC.

ps when the heck are the ZFT even going to let anyone know about the CB site?
Maybe when they get around to announcing a new FZ release? Damn, we're almost a month out
from Halloween. What gives?


Hasn't Joe T been out on the road quite a bit with Joe S over the last few months?
