News: At long last! The original version of Zappa's Cruising With Ruben & The Jets coming to CD.

This album has never really been available in digital form. If you didn't know, Frank Zappa decided to remove the original drums and bass when he originally released this on CD in the 80s. The result was a very strange sounding album with loud booming 80s-sounding rhythm section on what are essentially 50s-style Doo-Wop songs. Well, almost 18 years later, we finally get this album as it was originally recorded.

The Zappa Family Trust has released a very strange cryptic press release that reveals the release will be titled "Greasy Love Songs". No word on what bonuses might be included with the release, but they do have a pre-order price of around 20 bucks. Click below for all the info we know at this point. Stay tuned to this blog for more details as they become available.
