Sweet. I liked Metal Church. Not sure if pop "metal" pushed them off or if the guitarist who ran the band just never got the right combination in place.

I guess he made some scratch off this one though....



Yep, and they played it on the show, sounded great.

I just picked up Allman Brothers - Live at Fillmore East on vinyl a week and a half ago. I have my original but this one is a re-release and I had to have it. I have a vinyl to mp3 turntable hooked up to my computer so I can record the vinyl and put it up for safe keeping.

No, I just got on the Zappa website the other day and saw them. I know Joe's Garage is one of them. That is one of my top 5 FZ albums. Used the have it on vinyl, but replaced it with a CD in the digital age.

No subwoofer. We have one for the TV, but not in my man-cave with my stereo system.


Is "One Size Fits All" available on vinyl ?

up until 5 years ago I still had about 300 albums. slowly started selling them all off. kept all my Allman Brothers & Hot Tuna. Gave all my old Beatles to my daughter for Christmas.

My Iron Maiden reissues (post 1990) arrived yesterday, all very nice, I hope they sound as good as they look.

I am going to have to reinforce my audio cabinet, it is fairly strong but not designed for records and these things are heavy.

Without derailing this thread.

It was fun, always heard of that Fest but I thought it was all prog, it is not, it is actually Prog and Power Metal. It was a nice variety of bands.

A friend was going to take his nephew, but his nephew started a new job that he could not pass up and I was invited for free, we went for the two days of the fest which are the cheaper days.

There were some good bands, a couple of screamo with prog influence, others straight up power metal which I have never understood why is not popular at all in the States and some prog bands that are just too much for me, like Haken in which case I focused my attention on the drummer.

The surprise, Metal Church played headliner Thursday night and just thinking of it gives me chills, they came out sounding solid, heavy, powerful and put on a great show. American power metal at its best. Very charismatic lead singer, and very good. (at some point he got off stage and went to give a hug to each person on a wheel chair).

The line up:

Wednesday
10:30PM-CLOSE HAKEN UK
8:15PM-9:45PM ORPHANED LAND ISRAEL
6:30PM-7:45PM SERENITY AUSTRIA
5:00PM-6:00PM POWER QUEST UK

Thursday
10:30PM-CLOSE METAL CHURCH USA
8:15PM-9:45PM BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME USA
6:30PM-7:45PM VANDEN PLAS GERMANY
5:00PM-6:00PM TWILIGHT FORCE SWEDEN
4:00PM-4:30PM NEXT TO NONE USA


I think I have one Metal Church album. Prog is different than what it was in the late 60's and 70's.

Used. I don't think it was in the batch of 6 that got reissued on vinyl. Love Inca Roads, Andy, both Sofa's, Florentine Pogan, and San Ber'dino. The others on the LP are okay. It is definitely an essential FZ album, IMO.

Gone today to a dealer. Pleased with the deal and the cash in my pocket, hope it doesn't burn too big a hole.

Spent some of it on an Epiphone Les Paul Special 11 in mint condition with amp, stand and bag. My 3rd one. I can be a sucker for a great deal!

Your right a bunch are available. I need to get the 180 gram version of Apostrophe(') that is THE one. Next I dig Joe's Garage ActsI,II &III, You Are What You Is, Over-NIte Sensation, Zoot Allures, Shiek Yerbouti, One Size Fits All, Roxy, and many more. A lot of his real early stuff I don't listen to all that much even though FZ is the man. Some of his stuff I equate to the Prince Syndrome. Since he had his own studio he was the be all, do all, end all deciding factor in what went on record and sometime he shoulda had a guy like me around who is a fan to say ya know Frank maybe not.

I agree that Apostrophe is the $hit... though Hot Rats may always be #1 for me.

And there was certainly some self indulgence there. Like you said... why not if I got a studio? And I guess the answer is because it's not as good as you can be.
