Frank Zappa GSW Project Vol. 25 1981 (T-1502)

This is Volume 25 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.

= original notes by T.

This is a re-seed of:
seeded by BagsGroove (02-27-08) at The Trader's Den;

I know/believe that most of the zappateers users already have downloaded 'Frank Zappa GSW Project Vol. 25' at TTD, but it would be nice to have it at zappateers tracker, too, to keep it alive for a long time. Volumes 1-24 already have been posted here. Maybe honyak45 will keep on seeding new compilations in the future.

Thanks for sharing it here cbfz55.
I'm not looking at TTD often... and it's a must here also.

Thanks to Mr. T. of course for all the work in putting this together and for sharing!

Maybe honyak45 will keep on seeding new compilations in the future.

I hope so!

I know the interview with Chuck from the Lagz Video compilation, which was very interesting. Frank had an opinion on everything and his views are still valid today.

Thanks again for all the volumes, it truely is a labour of love!!

Thanks a bunch


"Every Emperor, funky or not, has problems to deal with, and CLETUS is no exception. Aside from the long-drawn war, there is a problem of civic unrest, a grotesque cult of masochistic ascetic fanatics who don't like music has sprung up in catacombs beneath the emperors very sauna bath. These people are called QUESTIONS."

what's the story with Zappa beating up a shop teacher for molesting his younger brother? I've never heard/read that story anyplace before--anyone know anything about it?
