Frank Zappa
Maples Pavilion, Stanford University,
Stanford, CA
April 3rd 1980

~~ from 1st gen copy (CD-R sourced) ~~

Basically this is a very good sounding version (A-/B+) from this show.
Unfortunately this transfer comes with a whole bunch of digital errors (skips, SBE tracking flaws), which we have tried to work away mostly. Some are still audible.
To this date all available versions from this source are having these flaws, and we're still hoping to be able to present this great show one day without these minor defects.

Some of the skipped or cut parts in this transfer have been patched with material from a much(!!) inferior sounding but more complete source, kindly supplied by BengoFury.
To some, including these patches may sound even more distracting than leaving those damaged parts untouched. As usual, unpatched versions of each track can be found in the bonus 'unpatched' subfolder.

We thought we had to make sure to include from the inferior source at least the possible (?) world 1980 premiere on-stage recording of that famous little eigth note fragment (C-A-G#-G# A#-A-F#-F#),
strangely named "W°÷÷°l" at a first stage, but later more widely known for its inclusion in "Mo'N' Herb's Vacation Part II and III" [LSO],
and heard here for the first time during the Tuning section of Track 00.
This little run has been quoted in several 1980 shows' FZ solos since.
Enjoy !

Glad to see this seeded.

I think the Mo's theme was also played a few times in Sheik Yerbouti Tango in February 1978.

We did this in our tradition of patching tracks, but this is one where you might want to opt for the unpatched tracks. So it's your choice how you put this show together.

Oh my ... you're certainly right, P headhammer
Please all, forget about what I wrote earlier about the "possible(?) world premiere" around this theme ...
