Joe's Garage - album of the month

If you're old enough, do you remember what you were up to 30 years ago? Well, if you were hip enough you were probably on your way to the record store to purchase your copy of the new Frank Zappa album, Joe's Garage, Act I. (Act II and III came two months later.)
A lot of things have changed since then. There are hardly any record stores left, for instance. But Joe's Garage remains one of Frank's strongest albums. It features a sort of low budget stage musical with a storyline, rather bizarre though. We get delicate funky pop songs and beautiful guitar solo pieces, played by a great band with Vinnie Colaiuta on drums.
So for September Radio Dupree will play all songs from Joe's Garage plus some additional stuff that we think belong there as well.

I specifically remember that the second double album was not available at the time the first part was in the stores. In the record stores, remember those?
