I just read that during the Garrack run Don would perform an instrumental called Epistle to Thomas. Has any recording of this track ever turned up in any form? Confused

"Don Preston subsequently told Andrew: “The name of the song Essra was speaking of is the first song I ever wrote, called ‘Aegospotomas’, named after a Greek river. It's on the CD called ‘Retrospective’ on Crossfire.” A version with Bunk Gardner appears on Don’s ‘Vile Foamy Ectoplasm’, also available from Crossfire Publications"

Thanks, Twilkes... You beat me to it!

My interviews with Don and Essra Mohawk, containing the info above, can be found in my compendium Frank Talk (https://www.wymeruk.co.uk/webshop/books/rock/frank-zappa/frank-talk-andrew-greenaway/).

The book comprises over 40 interviews I have conducted during the past three decades, with the people who knew and worked with Frank. Most of these originally appeared on my website (www.idiotbastard.com), but have been annotated with copious footnotes (not quite so many in the Kindle version 😢) that provide fresh new insights.
