Ditto --- thanks very much, obdewil, for the link to that excellent and interesting interview. I totally understand and sympathize with John's anger toward ZFT for ignoring his request to remix Trout Mask. It just really disappoints me that the world will probably never hear Trout Mask the way that one of its authors envisions it. Besides, we already have *so* many reissues of the original TMR... What's to be lost by trying a radically new mix, one that will likely be more authentic than anything before?. Seems to me that by ignoring John, ZFT is passing up an phenomenal --- and *final* --- opportunity to make musical history with that material, i.e. by taking advantage of John's ears and memory.

I'd keep the Trout masters out of John's hands mahself.

And this: "The Zappa Family Trust just approached me, saying there’s going to be a big box set of all things Beefheart coming out on vinyl soon."

Sadly, from my understanding, this is dead in the water.

Waaaaaah!
