It's Monday but the mailbox is still empty, no Joe's Menage CD there yet.
Many of the comments in various forums on the internet expresses positive expectations over this release.
But at the same time someone is asking something like "So what's all the fuzz over this one? The FZ:OZ CD included 7 of the 8 songs on the Menage CD and it's basically the same band, except for Norma Jean Bell"."
Well, here at the Radio Dupree staff we think that it is Norma Jean's presence that will be the big difference, since she is said to be a helluva sax player and a great vocalist. We have not heard any live tapes featuring this particular lineup but it's our guess that the new Zappa CD may feature different musical arrangements, particularly in the interplay between Norma Jean and Napoleon Murphy Brock.
Let's see if the postman has something for us tomorrow.
