    I’m privileged to be able to say that I saw Frank Zappa’s band, The Mothers of Invention, play three times - twice with the original lineup, at the Rhode Island Auditorium (1968) and at the Boston Globe Jazz Festival (1969), and once when Flo & Eddie were members at the Fenway Theater in Boston (1971).But I’d already been a fan before that first show. Sometime near the end of 1966, I visited Krey’s Disc Shop in Braintree, Massachusetts, to buy what would be my [...]
