Who Did What Blurb

This whole monstruousity was originally conveived February through March 2001 by the members of The Big Note - a Frank Zappa YahooGroup. After an arduous gestation period, this site was birthed on April 11 2001. True to the essence of collaborative effort, these people are held responsible.

TBN's HitParade II

The saga continued during 2002 and 2003; voting for the best tracks and making our very own compilations had already become sort of an addiction. This time, we focused on religion, Frank's guitar solos, rock from the Roxy band, politics, and a delightful radio show featuring the best unedited tracks presented by the very same Frank Zappa. These compilations were burnt to CD and sent off to TBNs members with NO commercial intention whatsoever.
Responsible for most of the covers is the ever irresponsible Sharleena; except for Shut Up and Play this CD, which was graciously procured by the kind YaHozna. Further credit is given to all those TBNites that bothered to vote, and of course, to SOFA, who compiled, played with his editing program, burnt, and sent off the CD's. (Click to enlarge!)

Shut Up And Play This CD

What it says: Shut Up and Play that CD...


"The last election just laid the foundation of the next 500 years of Dark Ages." said Frank in '81. He could have said the same four years back...
