What choir are u exactly referring to. When i see the Zappa logo, i see the name
Anthony- I dont see Vincent anywhere. And i would think the choir, so to speak,
would have a vested interest in the sales of this product. I believe it would be
best for all concerned if u did the talking to this Vincent.  George
