Frank Zappa
Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium
Santa Cruz, California
Late Show
September 29th 1981

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

Excellent sounding Master Tape version (A/A-),
less "spacey" and "boomy" than both Drew 1st gen and grner1 MC versions seeded earlier,
less audience noise here, but very clean sounding, almost SBD-like.
Check the sound difference around the patched spots in tracks 01 and 12.
Enjoy !

total time (Musigny23 source only) 108.49 min

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 !!!

Awesome! Thanks to all for this one! I love having so many great recordings of this show!! The tapers nailed this one down!! yes!! I look forward to a good listen, thanks again Musigny, Flambay.

Also thanks for the link to that old thread. So we have three sources Grner1, Musigny23, and Ron Covall's copy from my first gen. How awesome is that? I'm hoping we are not done with this show. That Ron makes an appearance, and upgrades my first gens. He is the source for the 07- 84 boards. What a great update that would be! I also have the fall 84 board from him, never compared to current version. His collection is to die for. The Knick-Knack outtake comes form him too, A Zappa Affair, first night, Speaking Of Music, it just goes on and on...

I found those two shows from 29.9.1981 always kinda "grey", but having this in such good sound quality maybe shines some new light on this. Thanks! Really appreciated!
