1-Jun 1988, Palasport, Padova, Italy

FZshows: 125 min, Aud, B+/B
This source: 112.23, Aud, (subj. quality hint: at least A!)

Rip from original DAT

CD1 = 1 track (01 to 15)
CD2 = 3 tracks (16 to 20) (1st encore: 21-22) (2nd encore: 23 to 25)
Fade-ins & -outs present on the CDs

Update to the infos provided in the samples Forum:
Ale, a leading Italian zappaholic who gave me the CDs and whom I heartily thank, wrote me the following notes about this recording:

"The taper is a friend of mine (I'm using deliberately the present tense even though he is not with us anymore, R.I.P.), and maybe it would be nice to dedicate to him this sign, this presence in the apparent telematic fixedness.

No tweaking or equalization were made on the tape, apart from a necessary reduction of the initial sudden volume jumps due to a clumsy handling of the mic by Gianni, who still lacked experience with one of the early portable DAT recorders (a SONY).

(...) Gianni told me that he recorded the show from "the usual place" in Padua's San Lazzaro Sport Palace... which for us music aficionados meant immediately on the left of the mixer in the parterre. From the past experience at many concerts we deemed that place the best listening spot in that shitty venue!! And, judging from the results, we were right!"

Lineage: Aud > DAT > CD-R > WAV (EAC Secure Mode) (CEP for retracking & speed correction) > FLAC Frontend (SBE, Level 6)

Here's a review of the concert by the ever-popular and meritorious JN

"Another slow starter show - the first couple of songs barely manage to keep my attention. The Trouble/Penguin/Hotel medley is the first event worth mentioning, with its usual three nice solos. The "13" solo in "Trouble Every Day" is not one of the best we've heard, yet it's intriguing and Chad is excellent. Mike plays a little ditty in Penguin In Bondage - very cool, starting out in far-out territory, but soon approaching more straight R&R style (still highly original).

"Outside Now" becomes another of those little improvised epics: it starts out smoothly, continues with some typical FZ noodles, before going totally berserk. For 30 seconds, the solo consists of frenetic little 64ths or 128ths or whatever, all over the fretboard - then just as the rhythm section begins to catch up, FZ cools down again for a little while, before squirting out another wild burst of little dots. Very unpredictable and exciting!

Soon enough, it's time for "Big Swifty." A worthy monster, with a little of everything. Good solos by Bruce and Ed, and some synclavier jamming, before FZ starts the loop : a long, complex one - too complex, it seems, since Chad evidently doesn't know how to play along with it, and Paul Carman, who gets called to solo over it, does not seem comfortable with it. So FZ shuts it off, and Paul gets the chance to shine over more traditional accompaniment.

"Inca Roads" comes with a lackluster FZ solo, but a nice surprise in form of a great trumpet solo, in the spot where we're used to hearing the sax. Walt whips out a long, energetic solo, somehow reminiscent of his brother in style. The later part of the show does not contain any surprises. "Sharleena" and "Bamboozled By Love" both keep spawning nice solos. FZ's playing in "Bamboozled" is more nuanced than usual, with both the obligatory frenzy and a more mellow part."

the lineage looks like a masterclone to me, why not have the MC in the subjectline then?

You're right. It is indeed a masterclone, since the transfer on CD has been made from the original DAT. I had confirmation of this only this morning. Arrow Subject mod-o-fied Wink
