Frank Zappa GSW Project Vol. 23 1980 (T-1500)

This is Volume 23 in a very large collection of Frank Zappa spoken word releases. It's called the GSW Project.
GSW stands for Gigantic Spoken Word. There will be some music in there but there won't be any full live concerts in the GSW Project. They consist of radio, TV interviews and journalist reporter type personal interviews. During the radio interviews sometimes music was played as background or added before the broadcast in between questions and answers.

Sometimes FZ acts as D.J., plays records from his collection and talks to the radio audience.
But the main focus of this series is FZ interviews which to me is as interesting as his music.

I removed the blank spaces and a few bad edits. I checked and corrected the speed. I checked and eliminated DC offset. I've included an edits removed file. If you burn as audio don't include this file on the audio disc.

I did the editing, mastering (tweaking), analog to digital transfer and artwork for this release. Don't add to, change or remove any of these files. Keep the text, md5 and artwork files unaltered, together with the FLAC's.

Don't rename directories or file names if you share this. My concern is that when people rename them they drop information like date, venue, location, T number. This information is useful to others when searching for or deciding which version of a show they want or already have.

Don't alter the sound of this recording. The T releases are not to be used as a source for anyones so called remastering projects. If you really want to do something find a better quality source recording and work from that. Don't just take the release I've already worked on and screw with it.

For Trade or Give Away Only - Do Not Sell - Do Not Encode As MP3 Virus Files - MD or any other format which degrades the quality of the recording.
