Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention - Uncle Meat (1969) [2CD] {1995 Ryko Remaster}

Over the two-record set, Zappa manages to cover the entire spread of his interests. Masquerading as a movie in progress, it is a way of highlighting the struggle of trying to keep the band together against a pretty hostile, or worse, apathetic audience. The frustration of putting something out that is artistically brilliant has a particular significance, as music and film go hand in hand. The film dialogue is either hilarious or it will leave you cold. The former is the general consensus. Zappa was so far ahead that his earth life ended before we caught up with him. Weird but highly recommended.
Recorded from October 1967 to February 1968. Includes liner notes by Frank Zappa.

UNCLE MEAT was digitally remixed with approximately 40 minutes of previously unreleased material from the original sessions.

Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention - Cruising With Ruben & The Jets (1968) {1995 Ryko Remaster}

Having blown the music world's mind with the Mothers, Frank Zappa made a left turn to indulge his childhood love of doo-wop. Recording with the rest of the Mothers, he created CRUISING WITH RUBEN & THE JETS, an album of "greasy love songs and cretin simplicity." It is also an album of authentically performed doo-wop songs that might have even been hits had they been recorded a decade earlier. From the falsetto voice singing of unrequited love, street-corner background harmonies and "Earth Angel"- styled narratives in "Love Of My Life " and "Deseri" to the questionable production values, Zappa accurately recreated the doo-wop sound. In the process, he proved that there was more to his talent than a crude sense of humor.
The Dirty Dozen: Toxic Chemicals and the Earth's Future

The Dirty Dozen: Toxic Chemicals and the Earth's Future by Bruce E. Johansen
Publisher: Praeger | Number Of Pages: 312 | Publication Date: 2008-10-30 | ISBN-10: 031336141X | PDF | 1 Mb

Forty years after the publication of Rachel Carson's Silent Spring, this important study examines the history, industrial uses, and harmful effects of the twelve most commonly used organochloride chemicals. All have been fully or partially banned by the Stockholm Protocol, an international treaty signed by about 120 countries in December 2000. Among the twelve are the dioxins (the active ingredient in Agent Orange) and polychlorinated byphenyls (PCBs), which are toxic in minute quantities. Johansen pays special attention to the Inuit of the Arctic, where these chemicals have been bio-accumulating to dangerous levels, moving up the food chain to a degree of toxicity that some Inuit mothers are no longer able to safely breast-feed their infants.
