This is disc one of four. Be WARNED Zappa is only on one disc. This is the complete Senate Hearings as requested by many, so here it is. You may only want the Zappa appearance, see text to where that is. FYI this tape was used at New York University to show how Frank composed a piece (Porn Wars) concerning a real event. Jon Nelson of The Meridian Arts Ensemble was teaching the class, and was directed to me by Blackpage to obtain a copy. It was great to have a piece on my collection actually be useful! It was affirmation that we are historians and not just collectors. What we do is important. As a taper, i'm proud to have preserved moments in history that might otherwise be lost. Also this is public domain material. The Senate video is public domain.
Here is the text...
The Senate Commerce Committee: Hearing on rock lyrics
September 19th 1985
U.S. Senate, Washington D.C. USA

Here ya go. The U.S. Senate Commerce Committee. Commerce Committee??? What do lyrics/words have to do with commerce??
Just over 4 hours of The United States Government at work for you!

For the people that are 'Legal' residents of the United States, call or write your Senator, Congressperson
or local representative and tell them how you feel about the issues that are effecting you and your country!

Thanks!!! Cool stuff to have!

I have to make a new torrent due to some mistakes in text. So patience as i figure this out.
OK, got it!
Yeah Denver would have made an excellent politician, he knows he stuff. Probably would be very liberal, and I'm not, though it doesn't matter what you are if i feel your there for the right reason. John would be. We all lost a lot with his death. He is awesome here! He makes the point in speak the Senators can understand, is respectful, yet drills his point of view. Most certainly the most effective way to make your point. And no doubt came off as carrying the most weight, very well put. His music is very soothing too, I miss him. Damn good guy.

News alert Jerry Falwell found unconscious just now! Said to be in bad shape. Did I strike a blow with this torrent? Although he has nothing to do with this hearing, he certainly is part of the problem. You know though, he is nothing, these are little people, always were. Now the religious left - Farrakhan, Rhyming man Action Jackson, and Sharpton scare me. They know how to shake people, corporations and industries down big-time! Just ask Imus!

update:
Well I never wish ill on anybody. I hope he finds what he is looking for. Certainly his death is the sign of the times, the fall in morality continues...
I still feel it's wrong to be negative, it does nothing for you, better to have hope.
OK, well I just saw a good looking sheep, I gotta go....

Men,
Thank You in advance for this piece of history ! It's funny , but scary at the same time that our leaders ( and I use that term tounge in cheek ) would spend that amount of time for something as silly as langauge. If I may be sold bold FUCK THE PMRC prost

It still happens giant wastes of time, it's sad. Today they are bettter at selling it, and the people are still buying. As long as people ignore, and don't watch this stuff. I have watched this time and again on C-Span. I can't believe the amount of BS, it so heavy boots are issued at the door. The idea of these hearings was to give the PMRC press, and it worked, they got there way and records were rated, as the Zappa's and the Gore's dine together.....

Jeff Ling's slide show is incredibly (unintentionally) funny, probably funnier than any of the testimony, even Frank's. I believe it's the source of Frank's knowledge of the Mentors, a truly awful Spinal Tap-like trash-metal band from LA who were pretty much unknown nationally until the PMRC gave them all this free publicity. Sample Mentors song titles: "Free Fix for a Fuck," "Golden Showers," "My Erection Is Over."

This whole thing is truly a monument to political stupidity.

Al and Tipper Gore became friends with Frank as a result of meeting at this event, and both of them moderated their views on rock lyrics--possibly due to their getting to know Frank and his family. However, I don't think they ever lived down Tipper's involvement with the PMRC nonsense.
