Frank Zappa
Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium
Santa Cruz, California
Early Show
Semptember 29th 1981

~~ from alternate Master Tape > DAT source (Musigny23) ~~

As noted by the taper himself (see bottom of this post) - much less difference in sound here between this and grner1's Masters than with the Late show.
Anyhow, still worth having this very good sounding alternate version up here, along with the already seeded ones. Very enjoyable listening to !

musigny23 notes:

(Facing stage) Recorded from left side bleacher seats above side entrance
using the railing to mount the mics in open and rock stable position.

Left speaker stack experiences partial(?) failure at 1:45:37.20
Show concludes with blown speakers Note buzzy vocals at the end of "Torture"

Early Show
Recorded from center of main floor in folding chairs, sitting with Grner1
I was using Nakamichi CM 300's, He was using Electrovoice RE-10's
For the late show I moved, to separate ourselves so we wouldn't both get
caught taping together and risk getting nothing. Also I was feeling like crowd noise was a problem and
handholding the mics was maybe insufficient for good sound because to be safe they had to be kept low.

More details around this version/source posted here.

thanks to musigny23 for taping and for sharing this version
thanks to Drew51 for hosting the raw file
thanks to grner1 for the additional material (patches) as per ZP's seed

Enjoy !!!

Nice work on this. Thanks for taking the time to fix it up. I'm glad to finally see it available for open free sharing. Since I had this, my own master, and for what you might understand as obvious reasons, I didn't really ever seriously compare this with Grner1's version. I personally preferred the Nak 300s to the EV RE-10s, so, I'm curious as to what any of you guys think about whether you prefer this recording or the Grner1 recording. We were sitting together and so were getting essentially the same sound.

I'm not sure which version I like more. I'm leaning towards the Grner1 example. This has a little excessive bass on my system. The Gner1 early was his best recording. On the late show I like your version, but the Ron Covall version is excellent also. Both of these are better then the Grner1 version. This is from memory, i didn't pull out the other versions. I know before this I liked the Gner1 early and the Covall late, which is a super nice recording. But so is your late show. i would have to pull the Covall version out to decide.
So as far as your masters versus Grner1 masters, it's a split decision.
