And just out of curiosity..would Frank compose the music for all instruments, or did band members get to contribute.
Thanks in advance.
Zappa did compose quite a bit but I'm sure that players like George Duke had a say in determining what they played. Yellow Snow aside, I think that era of Zappa was the best, personally. Aside from Apostrophe, which I think you have, other's from that fusion-y era were Over-Nite Sensation, Roxy & Elsewhere (live), and One Size Fits All--all of them worth your while.
