This seed includes an additional fill portion to the tape flip cut in Punky's Whips (included in old unknown gen fredfox-fl version),
which I have initially overlooked when preparing this 2nd gen version for seed.

If you have already downloaded the 133.07 min version of this 2nd gen copy,
do not download the whole thing again !!

Instead, when downloading this new torrent,
1) copy all .flac files from my 133.07 min version upload (except Track 14 Punky's Whips !!)
into newly created folder "1977 11 11 Kansas City MO 134.01 AUD 2nd (agalli-flambay)"
2) copy 1977 11 11 Kansas City MO - 14 Punky's Whips.flac into
"Unpatched" subfolder
and rename it to 1977 11 11 Kansas City MO - 14 Punky's Whips (unpatched).flac

This should give you an approx. 94 % headstart when downloading this version.

My apologies to all for this inconvenience,
and thanks to superjudge for notifying me about this overlooked extra 54 secs portion in Punky's Whips.

Thanks for the fixed track.
A really nice upgrade to. I had to listen to this again, brings back some great memories that's for sure. I had to get a fake ID to get in because they served drinks at the time. I wish someone had recorded the first show. Got a Titties and Beer with the Crissie puked twice verse, Conehead, a Muffin Man, if my memory serves me right, He might have played Muffin Man again the late show for the last song, but it was so long ago. cheers

I thought so too! Frank sat on a stool smoking, whilst Patrick played the solo. I have a bunch of pics from that night somewhere's here. If I can find them and the time I'll post them here. A pic of Adrian holding the toy horn to his ear during COTL, the bass solo with Frank sitting down, Frank turning around showing his butt during Disco Boy, Adrian wearing the Tonka hat, and a sailors cap during Punky's. This got the memories going now... I'l find my pics and put em up here. And yes for anyone who is in doubt, this is the late show. How can I forget my first Zappa concert! I wish to heck someone recorded the early show. I even think there might have beena Yo Mama in there somewhere's, but I can't be sure. other than the songs I recall him doing the early show, most of the songs here were repeated, but there was a few that were not.
.....I just found some of my photos, will post soon.
Thanks again for a really good upgrade! tunes

Excellent work on a excellent show!

Frank Zappa
at the
Uptown Theater
Kansas City, MO
1977 11 11
Adrian Belew, Patrick O'Hearn, Terry Bozzio, Tommy Mars, Peter Wolf and the hardest working man
in show business, Ed Mann. Mr. Green

Frank had so many awesome line-ups, but this was one hell of a rockin' teenage combo, for sure.
I know this is considered the "Sheik Yerbouti" band, but the "Zoot Allures"(3 songs included here, plus "
Zoot"quotes) cover comes to mind as well.
Interesting that Pat is on the cover of "Z.A.", but not actually on the album itself. Was Frank trying to appeal to a certain
audience demographic, with his hip-young white boy band? There must be a behind the scenes story somewhere?

On with the show!

The taper comes in a bit late. Sad
But, that's okay because things are already cooking with Frank opening the shoe (show) with a blistering
"Stinkfoot"! That ax must have been pre-heated. Smokin'. Twisted Evil

Next up, it's time to straighten out the crowd with a long winded "Poodle Lecture".
Some audience members want to be kept in the dark about their stupidity, but
Zappa tells it like it is. And you have to laugh when FZ tells us one of the causes of war. Laughing

I love the usual, but perfect little segue into "Dirty Love". And speaking of guitarist with nasty
lyrics flowing through their loins. Peter Frampton (my bets are on Belew) gives us
a nice solo here. Very Happy

And now for the sensitive part of the show (only kidding says FZ Razz ).
No, it's time for the:
Z_wonders "golden voices of the instruments themselves"
, with "Peaches".
Unlike real peaches, I've never consumed a "P.E.R." (by FZ) that I didn't like.
And this one here is quite sweet.

Now let the "Torture" begin! Twisted Evil
Frank gets into some laid back grooves.
What kind of guitar is he using here?
Whatever it is, it sounds fantastic. Very Happy

Now it's time to Sheik Yerbouti and "Tryin' To Grow A Chin"
This chin is not weak. Rolling Eyes
Sung by Terry? Correct? Confused

The bright lights of the big "City of Tiny Lights" is super tight. And Belew's voice is just so perfect for this cut (just like the album). Very Happy

"Pound" is always a monster song and this one is scary good!
O'Hearn's bass solo is definitely the highlight of this song (one of his best ever!).
In fact, both the bass and drums sound exceptionally good all night long.
Tommy also impresses with his extended solo. Cool

Funny intro for "Bobby Brown". I'll never be able to say "Ms." again, without thinking
about Zappa's rap. It's hard to judge the '70's audience reaction to the overtly
alternative sexual escapades of Bobby B. Will Kansas City ever embrace the "Tower of Power"
and a "Golden Shower"? Hmm? hmm

Torture? Pound? And now, King Kong?! Next, you'll be telling me there's a half hour
of "Wild Love", as well! imslow
I've never seen so many Monsters in one show. What is it Halloween?
I'm guessing, Wolf/Mars/Zappa solo order for "KK"? Confused

Back to "Yerbouti", and the folks in Missouri seem to enjoy hearing Bob Dylan (Ed Mann),
deal with the Californa "Flakes". And little skinny Terry Ted always loves telling everybody their
"Assholes". Who wouldn't? Both songs are solid (like the whole show!).

On to Bozzio's big number (TB gets a lot of singing time), "Punky's Whip" slap . This song is like a confession on "The Oprah Winfrey Show".
I've grown to really like this sordid tale. And the boy tells it well (I listened to "Live In New York" for years, oblivious of this song's existence! Mad ).
Too bad here we get a cut and some sound issues toward the end, that continues into . . . Sad

"Wild Love". Don't worry, girls. nothing short and sweet, tonight. Were going to work up a real James Brown dancingfool
sweat with this one. But first . . .
we have a sound issue. The first seven minutes and forty seconds are a problem (which is a shame
because according to Jon Naurin, the first solo attack is by Peter (hungry like the) Wolf at 4:41).
What to do? Confused
Just turn the volume way down. And ride through it, kids. Smile
Or do what most Zep fan's did during the 30 minute, "Moby Dick" drum solos.
Take a pee break! Idea
Go ahead. I'll save your seat. Just get back in time for Ed's solo.
After Ed, Adrian solos with an e-bow and then without it. Frankie goes next.
And he turns this "WL" inside out! It feels like wild love on X. Cool

Encore time
(boy, that went quick!). disbelief

You wouldn't expect "Disco Boy" for an encore, but this one is juiced up and rocks hard!
And finally, "Black Napkins" (with another "Zoot" quote) wraps it up nicely.

Some of Frank's most melodic and moody playing I've ever heard and beautifully captured here. Very Happy

Here is a review of this show by Jon Naurin.

Some pics of this wonderful evening here.

Seaching around the web for these gigs, I always find some weird tidbits.
Here's a strangely related story.

I enjoyed Stucco Holmes eyewitness account. Here's a "bloodshot" eyewitness account from
the same night (see post by imported_Pufnstuf).

Some pics posted here would be supremo! Don't forget to post them on
Circular Motion for our fellow Zappateer, Tom Jong.

Frank must have liked Kansas City to put on such an amazing performance.
Here's another Kansas City, FZ liked.

I'm sure more than one of the boys in the band/crew were humming this tune when they approached the city limits that infamous night.

Thanks again for another quality recording. Very Happy
