I wasn’t sure I should get any Zapp, since it’s really only tangentially related to p-funk. But I decided it was worth at least getting a greatest hits album, and since it had all the highlights from Zapp and Roger on one disc, it seemed like good value.
Only problem is, I really funking love it - a lot of it is better than what George was doing during the same time. Maybe that’s sacreligious, but it’s awesome. I have decided to dive in and get the whole Zapp Catalog.
Did you know it’s not difficult or expensive to do? There are two 2CD compilations that together contain all five original Zapp albums, and another one that contains the first 3 Roger albums. Then you just buy his 1991 release separately, and you’ve pretty much got it all. I mean technically, you could go further and get the post-2000 releases by the rest of Zapp, but seeing as they don’t feature Roger, I highly doubt they are all that essential - plus a couple of them look like they’d be real bastards to hunt down, too.
Any other big Zapp fans here?
