Here's volume #07 Glad you enjoy these! info text:

Frank Zappa GSW Project Vol. 07 1972-1973 (T-1484)

This is Volume 7 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 live concerts in the GSW Project. They consist of radio 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.

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 want to do something find a better source recording and work from that. Don't just take what I have done and screw with it.

For Trade or Give Away only - Do not Sell - Do not encode as MP3 or any other format which degrades the quality of the recording.

Thanks very much for all these recordings. I really enjoy listening to this type of stuff. Not only do they give you a major insight into Frank's thoughts and opinions etc., but also a fascinating glance back into time that now seems almost like ancient history. Working through them all should last me well into my old age!

You're all quite welcome! I love listening to frank too,he had so much insight into everything and far more insight into politics than anyone in our government today that's for sure.I believe Frank would have been quite pissed off about the condition of the U.S. government and world affairs if he were alive today.I still believe he would have made a great president! This collection of spoken word material gives me a lot of pleasure and that's why I wanted to seed it here so that others could enjoy it too.I haven't listened to it all yet myself but I listen to some of it just about every day.
Volume #08 coming right up! and still ten more to go after that!
