Imaginary Diseases released #OnThisDay in 2006.  The album features material from the Petit Wazoo tour of 1972. Many have tried to define who Frank was as a creative entity, but everything he wrote, played, sang or said further defined him as exquisitely indefinable. Imaginary Diseases is yet another Zappa jewel that places his body of work far beyond any limitation of label or category. And that’s the way we like it. - Steve Vai, from his album liner notes for Imaginary Diseases. This is Official FZ Release #76. What's your favorite track on this album?  http://bit.ly/2jeC0KN
