This show had been on the tracker for the past 10 years, in a version transferred and seeded by Jaypfunk. The seed needed to be updated because, apart from the name files, it did not run at the correct speed. There was another version of this show that had previously been seeded by Walk, which ran at close to the correct speed and sounded very similar. After careful analysis, we decided to go on and fix Jay's version, because it sounded a bit more natural and was completely raw. However, a small fragment of Walk's version was used at the very beginning of the tape, in order to replace a fade in. It looks like both copied derived from a later edited copy of the master: this suspicion is given by the fact that both sides end exactly after the end of the last note of the song performed. I guess that the original master tape probably had a bit of Frank's acappella solo after "Jones Crusher", which is entirely missing here. Unless a longer copy surfaces, we can only speculate. There are small drop outs near the end of side B of the tape which, unfortunately, appeared on both copies and could not be fixed.

I think Early 1977 is an interesting tour, as bar FZ, the line-up consists of three of my musical heroes (O'Hearn, Bozzio and Jobson) and my favorite Zappa singer. This show is quite a solid one, with some good stuff happening on "The Torture Never Stops", "City of Tiny Lights", "A Pound For A Brown" and "Black Napkins". This show does not necessarily contain musical extravaganzas (though the "Black Napkins" is pretty impressive), but there are no dull moments and it's a throughout enjoyable performance with very decent sound. Unfortunately, it's also one of the shortest concerts of the tour because some jackass threw a bottle on stage at the end of "Black Napkins", leading to Zappa refusing to perform the encores. Still, the main set is a good performance and the sound is nice, so it's a recommended listen.


Thanks to the unknown tapers!
Thanks to Jaypfunk for transferring and seeding!
Thanks to Flambay for speed correcting the most tricky parts, giving speed values and even helping with technical problems!
Thanks to Walk and Frank2441 for the fills!

Enjoy !!

Beautiful Thank you.

If you just been lowered down here on tv by a wire connected to a brown leather harness, forced by a crazy person to insert a mysterious imported lamp into the reproductive orifice of a lady harpist, and you were a dwarf.....would you do it?

Hey, a replacement, thank you very much! I lost this item because I gave away my old tape collection a few years ago.

Many thanks jaypfunk flambay and Galeans. good one!

Is vocal part (from 4:26 to 4:49) of Broken Hearts Are For Assholes used on Lather?
I think that it's very similar to the Lather version of the part of this song.

Holy shit! You're right. How about that? This show was not even known to have been recorded by Frank, as far as I know.

So far all official releases from this tour seem to be from the London shows. Since they were from very soon after this show, maybe they did that bit very similarly in one of them, or FZ may have hired a mobile studio in Germany too.
