    Definately Zappa. I have a few bootlegs that I bought at a guitar show and
    there was tons more. Good stuff too.

    Berlin actually have a DVD coming out later this year. As far as I know it
    is a live performance with the new lineup - not sure if there will be extras
    like the old 80s videos etc...

    Again, our resident twit has linked five otherwise unrelated NGs
    together via a crosspost. All groups will be forced to observe
    the replies from the four others.

  12. the worst part is a lot of the OLDER groups mentioned did have killer
    laserdiscs of the videos issued over the year, especially in JAPAN. i
    still come across some stuff i didn't even know existed on ebay.

    there is some hope, it seems always that the EU issues stuff on DVD
    much quicker when it comes to offbeat artists. i've found more
    interesting stuff on & .de than i ever do here in the US.

    only time will tell if someone will ante up and slap some of these
    guy's material on a DVD, i just hope they take the care to remaster
    them so when you do buy it, it isn't still in mono or sound like it
    was mastered off of a 2 head VCR.

    So what?
    Nine of the thirty-six artists listed play jazz, which equals
    twenty-five per cent, right on the money when considering that
    there were four musical genres posted.
    That's merely a subjective value judgment on your part. Whenever
    I get tired of making lists and take a break from time to time,
    I invariably get requests for more lists, so someone must like
    Wrong. I am always very careful to post on topic.
    That's pretty funny considering that I'm currently working on my
    eleventh album combining exactly those two styles of music.
    Ground control to space cadet! Come in, Major Mike!

    I guess all those DVDs I have in my collection by Miles Davis,
    Sun Ra, The Doors, Art Pepper, and Thelonious Monk, among others,
    are a figment of my imagination?
    It's still my contention that my posts ARE appropriate.

    You and Ric are venturing very close to Zedland by attempting to
    play jazz nazi netcop.
    There's always that option, too.

    Anarchy and chaos are not without their charm!

    Gee...I can't remember any such requests coming from
    We're just among those that are sick of reading replies to your "lists"
    from or, for example, showing
    up on

    If you must post these lists, try multi-posting. That way the "psychedelic"
    replies don't show up on bluenote.

    Orff, Bernstein, and Mahler are all represented on DVD - and there are
    several versions of the Barber of Seville :)

    There are some artists I can imagine being discussed in both. Free
    improv, mainly.

    Here's what I deduce from this thread:

    Industrial fans and psych fans are perfectly happy to talk about jazz,
    but jazz fans really don't want to hear about psych or industrial.
    Experimental music fans consist only of experimental musicians, because
    the only posts in r.m.e are crossposts or ads. Hmm.

    Now you're on jazz content... ;-)

    Since you're so smug in this response, I guess I'll have to get down to
    child's definitions for you. Newsgroups are subject-specific groups. People
    come here because they want to read and chat about jazz. Some topics get
    into some different areas, but they can be traced back to a jazz subject,
    usually can be traced within the thread. However, crossposting to unrelated
    newsgroups is generally frowned upon, as there aren't a helluva lot of
    members of that want to discuss "The World According to
    John Coltrane", and rightfully so. I happen to like other types of music
    immensely, and I could even draw a thin line to some of this music by
    playing the "improvisational music" card, but out of respect for the group,
    I don't bother. If I want to talk about funk music, I'll find a funk
    newsgroup to chat with.

    Since none of the groups included discuss *all* of the styles of music in
    your list, then it becomes obvious that you are posting information that is
    innappropriate for at least some of the groups. That's "so what".

    Are they jazz recordings? Additionally, why would you post four musical
    genres to a one-genre newsgroup? This isn't inappropriate to the purpose of
    the newsgroup?

    Bullshit. Non-provable, and a red herring.
    Wrong. Not on topic at all. Next.
    And when you do, I'm sure some will be happy to discuss it here. If it
    concerns jazz, then it's on topic. Most people would agree that there is not
    relation between jazz music and hockey, but if you record a CD playing jazz
    standards in a hockey rink, then it will be more on topic. Posting about
    either jazz or hockey is going to be some type of off topic, if you
    crosspost to this group and to a hockey group. Until that recording is made,
    there really isn't a very appropriate line between and
    One group discusses music and one group discusses videos. Of course the
    groups can cross, as there can be videos about and/or including jazz topics.
    However, unless you are discussing *jazz* dvds, the subject will have
    nothing to do with what members tend to come here to talk about. Unless you
    are talking about jazz *dvds*, you will be discussing a subject that is not
    of much interest to Do you join book clubs to discuss
    volleyball techniques? I mean, ground control to space cadet, there *are*
    books about volleyball, aren't there? Why *wouldn't* a volleball aficionado
    try to change the subject to volleyball, even if the topic of discussion is
    Edgar Allen Poe?
    No, but a jazz video about The Doors certainly is.
    Ned tries to control what can be and what cannot be considered jazz. All I'm
    saying is that it seems you have no idea what the FAQ for this group states.
    It's not a law, it's a general set of courtesies toward the people who post
    here. We're here to talk about jazz. If you go to a Kiwanis meeting to talk
    about women's issues, you're going to annoy people. Unless your goal is to
    annoy people, you're in the wrong place.
    So that's to say you *are* here to annoy people...

  20. "Mike C." expounded thusly:
    Why are you so anally obsessive about such rigid categories?

    The very best music transcends genres.
    Often they have elements of jazz.
    There you go again with those narrow-minded boundaries.

    Who appointed you the moderator of an unmoderated newsgroup?
    I've already made ten previous recordings that contain all four of
    the genres that this thread is posted to. The first one was released
    in 1975.

    How familiar are you with how fervently Frank Zappa smashed musical
    genre boundaries, often within the same song?
    It's my contention that The Doors, as well as The Mothers Of
    Invention, Captain Beefheart, Pere Ubu, Spirit, and several other
    so-called rock groups, are more akin to jazz groups with rock
    leanings. Certainly, Ray Manzarek's and Robby Krieger's solo albums
    are clearly jazz.
    As do you in your own way.
    I'll gladly go read it.
    So am I. I love jazz. Especially all the avant-garde artists that
    Zed despises.
    Some serious social activists should break down those sexist barriers.
    Not specifically annoy, just to encourage some free thinking.

    You might want to consider me the iconoclastic Anti-Zed.
