YCDTOS road case picture 5

Parts of the 'road case' are slightly scratched. I', sure with a little cleaning it can be real spiffy!

I love mine and would hate to part with it. I can’t help but notice your corner protectors are far more shiny than mine!

It certainly was a better product than that Bowie Tech Unit that Ryko put out. Main reason I got that at the time was I actually wanted all the CDs included (Low Heroes Stage Lodger) and it might have been a deal at that but the “box” itself was kind of junky. I think I actually threw it out! Worth $50 alone these days possibly.

True story...
After David Bowie 'stole' Adrian Belew from the Zappa band, Frank saw Bowie in the lobby of the hotel in Berlin after the amazing concert Frank put on at The
Deutschlandhalle 1978-02-15 which happens to an amazing soundboard that Frank himself 'leaked' to the public and his fans. Anyway during Bobby Brown Frank starts singing "Ground control to Catain Tom." Then he says something like "inside joke, you know these big rock bands." Remember I'm writing this from memory.
So Frank sees David Howie and walks up to him and says "Fuck you Captain Tom!" I wish I could have been there to see\hear FZ say that. It turned out to be a great career move for Adrian. However I saw Belew solo once at the Bottom Line in NYC. He was playing solo on top of guitar loops and other twang bar king type stuff. He also took questions from the audience. He talked about how he got into Frank's band and he said one of biggest regrets was not staying in Frank's band longer.

But would we have got Genius of Love?

Worth him skipping out!
Didn't Frank mention that this was a music video he could approve?
Had artistic integrity?
I recall that somewhere in the back of my mind.

Belew wrote about the "Captain Tom" incident on his blog. According to this, it happened when Bowie and Zappa ran into each other at a restaurant after the Berlin show.
