Heads up!  This is an older version of Scott Parker's website, done by his pal RC (the same RC from Mother People? Yes).  This website only has a few books.  At the time of this update (1/17) the links below still work.  Bad links removed, this page only. Visit Scott's updated website at website at:

 http://spbpublishing.webs.com/

Check out Scott's podcasts:  In this one, he interviews Mike Keneally and others.  And somewhere within (at 2:12:30 to be more precise), Scott and Mike discuss RC & Mother People, bootlegs, my meeting with Mike (pretty accurate account) ,,, and lots of other very cool stuff.

Welcome folks to SCOTT PARKER BOOKS--my cheezy little site that allows you, the consumer, to have a look at my work.

  In a few seconds, a blast of sweet sounds will come from your speakers, so you might want to get ready and adjust the volume now.
 

In 2007 I published my first two books. My first book, "HUNGRY FREAKS, DADDY the Recordings of FRANK ZAPPA and The Mothers Of Invention Volume One 1959-1969", is the first of what will be an eight-volume series documenting the recorded documents of FZ from his earliest recordings (dating back to 1959) to his final recorded work (in 1993) and beyond. The second volume in my Zappa series is "Strictly Genteel", which covers the work of my personal American Idol from 1970 through the end of 1971. In 2008 I published a supplementary volume to the first two books, featuring articles relevant to the Recordings Of Frank Zappa series but not included in those books (mainly for space reasons). Volume three of the books series, "Blessed Relief" (2009) has just been published and is available to order now.  Still deciding what's next,  so as soon as I figure it out, I'll let you know here.  Stay tuned!
 
My books are self-financed and self-published (at least for now). This gives me the ability to create a book that I would want to see rather than a compromised book such as that which I would have with a major publisher.
 
This is what you would call a "utilitarian" site at the moment (I like that term), but it will grow and develop over time.
Once again, WELCOME and thanks for stopping by!!

RC note: I might update my half of this book, The Mud Shark Saga, and put it on my Mother People website.  But will only put it there if I update it, which I never seem to get around to doing,  In the event that happens, this printed book will still retain it's value, mostly becuase of Scott's half of the book, which you can only get in this book.

Now available at Amazon.com, a revised version
of my well-liked first book HUNGRY FREAKS DADDY!!!
 

The new version of HUNGRY FREAKS DADDY

features some additional text and corrections from the original private printing (these corrections have also been added as an appendix to the private printing of Volume 2) and a new cover.

 

Booksurge (my printers) have done a masterful job making this
new version look AMAZING!!

During the 1980's, RC published 39 fanzine/collector's guides called Mother People.  All issues, some originals, some reprints are available at motherpeople.com

The print in these issues, in most cases is very small.  I could read it all back then, but many older FZ fans like myself will need a magnifying glass.  I think someday Scott might do authorized enlarged print volume, or maybe like a "best of" or whatever ... Scott would keep you posted on that in the event it becomes a  project.
