But my question is: what is this "The Big Note: A Guide to the Recordings of Frank Zappa"? Is it new standard setting Zappa book or what? Surely looks interesting to me:

https://www.amazon.com/Big-Note-Guide-Recordings-Frank/dp/1554201462/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1526844917&sr=8-1&keywords=zappa+big+note

Yeah, the Big Note. Not all the minutia, but very complete on personnel on each track.

Plus I'm a footnote under YCDTOSA Vol 2. :D

ok, speaking of books...came across this:

THE RETURN OF RONDO HATTON - The Recordings of FRANK ZAPPA Volume 5 1974-1975
https://www.amazon.com/RETURN-RONDO-HATTON-Recordings-1974-1975/dp/1479397431

Writer Scott Parker is part of zft somehow, I wonder how are these books? Would definitely buy at least this 1974-1975 era one. Are there more volumes after this?
