At long least a good version of this excellent show appears on the tracker: It's actually incredible that it took so long for such an hystorical show to appear! There was a good version before Zappateers seeded by BengoFury and later a noise reducted version seeded by Jimshoes in 2005 which got eventually pulled and moved to The Bad Sources. In 2011 Musigny23 seeded on The Shoebox a version that was superior to both of these. A sample procedure revealed that no one seemed to have a better version so here it is: speed corrected and properly tracked. This is a very good audience tape with good clarity and nice ambience. Unfortunately the recording is also marred by channel drop outs that spoil a bit the enjoyment, especially on "Montana" and "Dupree's Paradise": my original plan was to work on these but it turned out to be impossible so they are left as they were. When those are not present, the sound is one of the most enjoyable of this era.

As per Charles Ulrich's excellent giglist this is this Mothers incarnation's second concert and it shows: there are instances where they get lost a bit, noticeably on "Approximate" and "Inca Roads". This said, flaws or not, this is an excellent concert and one of the truly essential tapes. First of all, the sound of this band is lovely and all the players are great. There is a lot of energy in the performance and Frank plays some mean solos. The highlights are the early version of the "One Size Fits All" tracks: "Andy" is taken at a slower tempo and sounds more majestic in place, "Florentine Pogen" is performed twice at double speed with a guitar solo in the middle and this is the first non-cocktail version of "Inca Roads" in circulation and, although some bits still need fixes, the bulk of it is already there. Oh, there's also the lyrically mutated version of "The Idiot Bastard Son" which is quite nice! A truly fascinating document from one of the most interesting periods of Zappa's career.

Credits:

Thanks to the unknown taper!
Thanks to Musigny23 for providing the best sounding copy and seeding it on The Shoebox!
Thanks to Flambay for giving speed correction values!

Enjoy !!

Excellent! Thank you very much. I saw the following night's show in Santa Barbara. Unfortunately, only a poor quality snippet circulates from that show. I'm hoping this will give me a taste of that memory from long ago. Thank you!!

Thanks. Glad to see this show make the tracker.

This tour would be a good candidate for a Road Tapes release.

Fantastic! Thanks for the upgrade musigny23 and for rescuing it from the shoebox G! Nice work. A fine show indeed and a very interesting transitional period for many of the 1973-74 era songs.

Kind regards,
Overnitefreak

I agree.
And of the 9 shows from this tour we have here I think 4 needed some sort of attention (Berkeley, Oklahoma, Vancouver and Seattle) so it's nice this one has made it to FZ Shows...
