One year ago, the iTunes Store (or as it was then known, “The iTunes Music Store”) had a vast collection of Zappa’s work. I bought many songs, such as “Catholic Girls” and “Peaches en Regalia”. Now, all of the previous extensive Zappa collection has been removed (at least for the U.S. store). And frankly (no pun intended), I’m pissed.

This was one of iTunes greatest collections. Zappa released over 60 albums in his short life (in fact, the 13th anniversary of his death is tomorrow). I’m sure Apple was making good money from this collection, so I’m led to believe it wasn’t their choice. Maybe it was Zappa’s lyrics that prompted someone to complain to iTunes?

I demand an explanation, Apple!
