shame about quality of recording, BUT we now have 1 or 2 actual shows.

saying thta I love the Grand & petit Wazoo tour.

12. New Brown Clouds

Some sources list "New Brown Clouds" as "New Brown Clouds (Regyptian Strut)". Track 6 is the Grand Wazoo Comic Book Extravaganza: Zappa conducts the audience in yelling comic-book sound effects, while the band reads from comic books. Charles Ulrich's Planet of My Dreams page has a transcription of it.

The first LP is red, and the second one is white (or possibly the other way around). They may contain tracks 1-5 and 6-12, respectively, but this is speculation. The artwork is yet unknown, but they were colour covers. Released in 1984.

(Gellborn Records, on Sveavägen in Stockholm, Sweden, once bought 25 copies of this bootleg, and were as of November 1999 still trying to sell them for 375 Swedish crowns a piece. At least one of their copies was defective - the red vinyl had been blended with lesser-quality material, which had oxidised badly. The same store also bought 25 copies of one of the Bolzano 1982 picture discs, which they managed to sell (all of them) much more quicky.)

In 2002, a 3-LP version was auctioned away on E-Bay. It seems there were simply two copies of the white disc, because the track list was given as roughly the same ("Lohengrin Act III", "Think It Over", "Comical Time", "The Grand Wazoo Comic Soundbook Starring Lots of Ugly Notes", "The Grand Wazoo Comic Book Extravaganza", "Arooh, Who did it? Acts I-III", "Dog Breath / The Uncle Meat Variations", "Big Swifty", "Penis Dimension", "New Brown Clouds"), there were two white discs and one red disc, and the set was unplayed.

as always , I have avoided ANY modifications to the original tape recording.......this as the info notes state is one of my own, so a known lineage from the boot itself ,I have also made note to remove any officially available material.

Please be aware that during peak time (4pm~midnight GMT) there are restrictions on my ISP, rest of 24 hrs is free for all so patience appreciated.

Thank you
                                                                                                    thank you
                                                                                                                        and thankyou

Do what you want,do what you will,DON'T mess up your neighbours thrill.....Music is the best.

I'd give the quality a C but the performance an A ++++++++++++. I am listening to "Think it over" right now. Very nice

And its the charming Mary from Canoga Park...
