Cool, maybe it's a kind of "nice revenge" by Sting, since Zappa released
"Murder by Numbers" on "Broadway the Hard Way" 1988, but with Sting
as a special guest.

Frank read to us a note from Sting saying that he really enjoyed playing with the band, thanks for accomodating him or something along those lines, he would really like to help Frank out with registering voters in America as long as Frank helps Sting to get Thatcher out of office - which Frank found very intriguing - and the note ended with "Please mail me the sheet music for 'The Idiot Bastard Son', you won't be sorry. Love, Mr. Sting." [...] Then Vivian called, and when she called I mentioned to her that Sting needed the music to "The Idiot Bastard Son." Frank didn't have "The Frank Zappa Songbook Vol. 1", nobody else had it, I was apparently the only one in the touring organization who had access to it. So Viv was kind enough to fax the music to me, and when I got it I showed it to Scott and he thought it was great, and when I gave it to Frank he registered surprise and said "Boy, that was fast," and he gave it to Dave, and he came back and patted me on the shoulder and said "Good job." Sting's happy, Frank's happy, everybody's happy.

Hi pbuzby,

Thanks for the original post and better yet, for the remaster hookup > Yup, I was interested, I now have it and it's a great recording!

As for Sting's take on TIBS, while I appreciate it, I had expected something better perhaps? Even Frank's lead vocals on WOIIFTM do it more justice. However, Napoleon Murphy Brock's version from YCDTOSA V-II really kicks it with his awesome intonation, superior sense of timing, acute octave changes and tremendous vocals - SO SWEET INDEED

While exploring other versions (covers of TIBS) I came upon an interesting instrumental take which turned out to be from Jean-Luc Ponty's album King Kong:

All the songs are unbelievable and Frank even plays guitar on one song.

Great musicians doing some difficult licks and scores for sure... A must buy/have for me or as gift would be perfect too Wink

Happy Holidays and thanks again for the fine connect!

Really,
Dan
