And FZ certainly had his priorities straight:

She also later recalled that very early in their relationship, Zappa had played his record collection for her and gauged her reaction.
“I didn’t know it was a test,” she said, “and he never told me that I passed.”

The opposite of Air Supply:



This is an amazing posthumous release of tracks recorded at someone's home in the Detroit suburbs at the beginning of Hooker's career. All the hallmarks of his mature style are there. On "Jack O'Diamonds," his use of vibrato is striking, and ominous. The great blues singers didn't just step up to the mike with a feeling and "express" it. They knew microphone technique.
