Zappa Unlocked: The Mars/Barrow Connection
Arthur Barrow, Tommy Mars & Dr. K's Rockin' College Combo
Live @ Voertman Hall, University of North Texas, Denton, Texas April 16, 2012


Lineage: aiff file downloaded from unt.edu > dBpoweramp Music Converter: convert to wav file >
Nero 10 WavEditor: split wav file to sperate tracks > Sound Forge Pro 10.0: fades & volume adjustments >
dBpoweramp Music Converter: convert to flac level 8 > TLH: fix SBEs, create ffp & md5 files > Zappateers!

Background Information:
This is the audio portion of a concert that Arthur Barrow and Tommy Mars took part in at Arthur's alma mater:
The University of North Texas College of Music in Denton, Texas. The free performance was part of a residency
in which Arthur and Tommy met with and talked to about 60 students who are enrolled in the 'Music of Frank
Zappa' class taught by Dr. Joseph Klein. The students learned first hand from Barrow and Mars what it was like
to play in Frank Zappa's band. For more info go here: http://web3.unt.edu/news/story.cfm?story=12504

From robsam:
I found out about this show and the online download files from an email that I got from the infamous
Tom 'God Damn' Brown. Thanks to Tom Brown for yet another heads up about a cool Zappa type event!
There's a thread in the Speaker's Corner forum that Drew51 started about this show:
http://www.zappateers.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=23952

On that thread, I posted the url for the assorted aiff audio files and high quality mp4 & m4v video files.
Unfortunately the url isn't available anymore, but no problem because I got the amazing quality soundboard
audio file and the two video files. So I hereby present the audio portion of this great show for your listening
pleasure. The music is awesome especially Arthur's arrangement of Frank's song, Thirteen. As for the video
files, I'm not really sure if a DVD authored from an mp4 file is allowed on Zappateers. I really hope so, but in
any event I'll be getting a DVD of this show and if it's OK to share on here I will upload it once it's completed.

I sent an email to Arthur Barrow a few days ago asking him if it would be OK with him to share this show on
Zappateers and also if he happened to have any more information about the concert. In particular, I wanted to
know the names of all the musicians in Dr. K's Rockin' College Combo. I've met Arthur a couple of times, but it's
been at least 10 years since the last time I saw him when got the chance to visit him in his studio in Venice, CA
along with Tom Brown and Mike Keneally. Well, not only did Arthur remember me, but he also emailed me scans
of the concert program which I have included them in the 'extras' folder in this torrent. I have also included a
snapshot/capture of the video file and a nice publicity photo of Tommy & Arthur for your viewing pleasure.

Arthur wrote this in his email to me:
"The Texas thing was a lot of fun - so glad you enjoyed it. We have no plans to release it, so do what you want."

Thanks Artie! Thanks Tommy! Thanks Frankie! "Music is the BEST!"

Thank you.

The first audience member that Arthur announces, Bob McCready, is the guy who came up with the phrase "The Carlos Santana Secret Chord Progression".

Hey there folks! It seems like everyone is happy with this upload. I'm glad I could present it to you, but really all the thanks should go to Arthur, Tommy, Dr. K and his Rockin' College Combo! It's really cool that they had the foresight to professionally record this concert in both audio and video formats. But even cooler is the fact that these files were up on that website for free...at least for a little while. The student/musicians in Dr. K's Rockin' College Combo did an outstanding job playing some really difficult songs. And it's so cool to see both Arthur and Tommy in top form as well after all these years. I'm just guessing, but I think Frank would have been really proud of the performance. What do you guys and/or gals think?

To answer your question. Enema Bandit the webpage that held the directory for all the audio and video files is dead. If you click on that url above, you get the dreaded:
Object not found!
Error 404
But like I typed in my ramblings of a torrent description and I'll typed it again because I like it (hehe):
"no problem because I got the amazing quality soundboard audio file and the two video files."
One of the video files is 1gb and the other is 3gb. One is mp4 and the other is m4v, but at the moment I can't remember which one is what. Both are high quality. As a matter of fact they are the best quality mp4 files I've ever seen. When I watched the videos files on my laptop, which has a hi-def screen, they look like a DVD would look. I know squat about DVD authoring so that's why I sent the files to my buddy who's good at authoring DVDs with menus and chapters and shit.
OK, I gotta pretend to work or something now. Carry on!

Is your buddy a Zappa fan? Make sure he knows the correct order of songs--because the original video file has the chapters mislabeled.

Don't worry drdork, not only is my buddy a fellow Zappateer (announce yourself if you want...ahem!), I also sent him the program, info file and I'm pretty sure he has already downloaded this torrent.

Thanks for this, I never grabbed the audio. Tom also gave me the link, and others too. The video looks higher resolution then DVD, but I know squat about video, at the moment anyway...

I think he would've been really happy about the performance and the fact that there was/is classes on his music for kids Smile
