A number of Captain Beefheart and Frank Zappa albums and CDs have been donated for a charity raffle and signed by some of the musicians who recorded them. The raffle is in aid of the Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF).
Kitty Tripp, organiser of the raffle, says that among those who have donated so far are John French (Drumbo), Mark Boston (Rockette Morton), Cal Schenkel, Bill Harkleroad (Zoot Horn Rollo), Denny Walley, Roy Estrada (Orejón), Jimmy Carl Black, Ed Mann and, of course, Art Tripp (Ed Marimba himself).
There is no quality grading of the items to be won, so expect vinyl to be well played and CDs to have been opened for signing. Tickets cost $5.00 each and can be bought through PayPal. The draw takes place on August 25 at Satori in Mobile , AL . Ticket holders are invited to attend. Winners who cannot be present will be sent their prizes.
