Frank Zappa
November 19th, 1977
Maples Pavilion, Stanford University
Stanford, CA

"Give me November 1977 or give me death"
-Patrick O'Herny, Revolutionary
bass player

Here's yet another winner from November 1977. What can a man possibly say about this tour and this band? Incredible seven ways from next Sunday.

Tonight marks the triumphant return of the instrumental Conehead - one of my favorite guitar solo vamps. What ass this would have kicked as an opener in Fall 1980, or as a second set opener in 1988. The solos throughout are great - Torture is long and spooky, City of Tiny Lights is some damn good ol' fashioned rock n' roll, Pound is good n' jazzy (dig that Rhapsody in Blue quote at 2:08!!), Wild Love is twenty five minutes of solo-infused intensity, and Envelopes is good and long and weird. Frank's in a great mood tonight - "no, listen, I ain't afraid of you at all - as a matter of fact, I really like you, especially because of the way you were playing drums on that last song! As a matter of fact, it was so good, if you didn't have that stupid mask on, I'd come up there and kiss you".

Oddly enough, and in stark contrast to the cut-filled tape from the previous night, this show seems to be without a single significant cut. A few tiny micro-cuts in Bobby Brown, Wild Love and Punky's Whips, none of which loses more than a second, and generous overlap around each tape side. Tag-team tapers? One taper with two decks? Four tapers with half a deck each? Who knows - maybe all of the above!

And, for our semi-mandatory second opinion, I yield the floor to Mr. Jay Jones of the (still defunct but never forgotten) Frank Zappa Tape Reviewing Society:

Jay Jones wrote:
Pretty Decent sound quality Aud. recording of an interesting show.
Flakes/intros - I can't tell if it's Frank or Adrian who plays the Steve Miller Livin' In the USA riff but that cracked me up. Apparently the home team won that day because Frank says,"So you guys won today huh? How incredibly thrilling." Peaches kicks off the show to a great start then Torture with a chilling Fz guitar solo with the ring modulated effects he has been using on this song. Some really unusual and unexpected sounds. I love the Frank- in- a- Hockey- rink- sound {I remember this band doing this song,{actually the same set} in Phx in 77 and the combination of Franks LOUD guitar with the moaning tape was almost too much,.......but I digress}
Tryin' to Grow a Chin,City Of Tiny Lights,Pound For A brown -Tommy Mars keys with scat singing is fun as he quotes Rhapsody In Blue and the tears it up on his keyboard as does Peter Wolf on his solo.
Bobby Brown,Conehead- nice guitar solo.
Flakes,Big Leg Emma,Envelopes-Tommy's vocals are fun and he he manages to throw in a "I'm In You" for good measure. Terry takes a great drum solo then into Disco Boy,
I Promise not to Come In Your Mouth-beautiful as usual.
Wild Love -Excellent performance with great solos by Adrian and Frank. Then Titties & Beer with some funny exchanges between Frank and Terry. Frank is very complimentary of Terry's drumming. "If you didn't have that mask on I'd come up there and kiss you." Next Frank asks for Terry's sister Carol Ann to come on stage to dance during The Black Page which the band plays magnificently. Jones Crusher and Broken Hearts are both well done but Terry did something to make Frank say,"I take back everything I said about you Bozzio. Honestly,Jesus Christ- get you into a major metropolitan area with your whole fuckin' family in the audience...."
Punky's Whips is great all the way around.
"You are completely surrounded by policemen" says the little car featured in Baby Snakes as a lead in to the encores: Dinah Moe Humm and Camarillo Brillo.
Frank says "I've been given the strange signal that this show has to come to an end.Who knows why these things happen?" and the show ends abruptly.
All in all a very enjoyable show to listen to.

Stanford winning... you know it was the 1970s Very Happy

So, settle down with a beverage of your choice, kick back and listen to two non-stop hours of fantastic Fall 1977.

I thought it was O'Herny... hehehe

thanks for the show. Nov. 1977 was a great month for Zappa, due in large part to Torture and Wild Love.

I'm saying simply this: the douche is where it's at.

I think the tracking on this is all wrong. Shouldn't Wild Love be split into at least three tracks? Wink

But seriously, thanks very much to you all for this major upgrade!
