Frank Zappa
1980-10-18
(Late Show)
Brady Theater
Tulsa, OK



So hey, some of us are pitch-perfect, some of us are people-perfect, some of us bowl perfect games, and some of us are just butt-ugly. I myself happen to be a very imperfect individual, which is why this show - originally sampled in APRIL (APRIL!!! Shocked ) - is only now finally coming to see the light of day. I barely even remember the summer, and most of the Fall is a blur. I'm pretty sure my life was somewhat chaotic, but certainly not chaotic enough to justify the delay here. It won't happen again, sirs - I promise.

On the bright side, there's a good chance that the delay means that our friend our companion that fat fuck with the parrot won't get his chance to destroy one of my personal all-time favorite Zappa tapes, and a genuine must-have for Fall 1980 fans - I have trouble keeping this out of the top-five best shows from the tour, and it's a tape I keep coming back to time and time again.

FIRST AND FOREMOST: Kitcheners/Kitchenaires take note: This torrent is abso-nearly identical to the erroneous~pbuzby version with the erroneous~pbuzby encore-patch unceremoniously dumped into the same directory. The files are renamed for Zappateer compatibility (thanks Ingmar for calling my attention to this thumbsup ), and there's about 5K of txt files that'll keep you at 99.1% or so for a brief moment in time, but I will strive to make sure that your clients are given priority, and you'll be seeding in no time.

SECONDLY AND SECONDMOST: The SA reveals that a bit of noise reduction has likely occured, both on this and on the CDs sent to me by Stucco Holmes (sampled here). The lineage of the Stucco Holmes source would mean that the remastering occured somewhere between the master and 1st gen. Regardless of who/where/when, it's a relatively clean job to these ears - actually, the parts that have been touched-up sound BETTER than the parts with more blue in the spectrum - and, for clarity, this isn't a MN butcher-job. I'd compare it to the well-appreciated Pink Floyd or Rush remasters that circulate, if anything. See the aforementioned link for an example of the SA, and I have some further comments down below after track 16 - Flakes.


Oh, and, uh, wait, before I cede the stage - thirdly and third-most - allow me to kindly beg the admins, moderators, powers that be, to turn this into a Listening Session - it was a listening session way back in the days of FTP servers and MP3s (#027 to be exact - pre-Unicrayon covers, even Crying or Very sad ), but it really deserves/needs to be heard again (and again, and again Razz ). Doing so would make this Penguin as giddy as a schoolgirl in bondage (when the battery doesn't fail, at that!).

Anyway, enough of me for now, here's the original text file, with my commentary in BRIGHT, MANLY RED.

Available Recordings, concerning JN: 119 min, Aud, B/B-
Source: 115.33 min, Aud, B/B- (Very B [almost+] for everything through COTL and then gets very B- after the first few seconds of Easy Meat)

ZP'S COMMENTARY: Actually 115.47, but I guess erroneous and pbuzby can be forgiven for this.

Lineage: Aud > cassette ? > EAC > CDWav (re-tracking) > Flac Frontend (level 8 )
Lineage [fills source]: Aud > Master Cassette > Stand alone CD Burner - CDR > EAC secure > wav > Soundforge 7.0 (re-tracking + pitch correcting only [+41 cents]) > Flac Frontend (level 8 )
Taped by: N/A [Actually Dale Bishop]
Transfered by: N/A [likely Dale Bishop as well, or possibly a friend - see Stucco Holmes' post here]
Main source by: pbuzby
Fills by: erroneous
Edited by: erroneous
File Size: 609 MB

ZP'S COMMENTARY: This sounds near-identical to a known 1st gen CD-R sent by Stucco Holmes. See archived, dusty old discussion here

Frank Zappa's Band Sep.'80 - Dec.'80:
Arthur Barrow - bass
Vinnie Colaiuta - drums
Bob Harris #2 - keyboards, high vocals
Tommy Mars - keyboards, vocals
Steve Vai - guitar
Ray White - guitar, vocals
Ike Willis - guitar, vocals
Frank Zappa - guitar, vocals

Setlist:
01 - Intro
02 - Chungas Revenge
03 - You Are What You Is (cut @ 0:31 - fill from 2nd source - approx. 2 seconds)
04 - Mudd Club
05 - The Meek Shall Inherit Nothing
06 - I'm A Beautiful Guy
07 - Beauty Knows No Pain
08 - Charlie's Enormous Mouth
09 - Pick Me I'm Clean
10 - Dead Girls Of London
11 - Shall We Take Ourselves Seriously?
12 - City Of Tiny Lights (cut 6:39 - 2nd source added + tape flip @ 6:42)
13 - Easy Meat (incl. Hog Heaven) (cut the first few seconds - noise sample included here)
14 - I Aint Got No Heart
15 - The Torture Never Stops (ZP'S NOTE: The segue between this and Flakes is imperfect, but I left it as-is for maximum archival compatibility. If making an audio CD, this is a logical place for the CD switch to occur)
16 - Flakes (ZP'S NOTE: Sound quality takes a bit of a dive here - SA actually looks less NR'd than tracks 1-15, but it's entirely possible that the first CD was also tweaked for EQ and this CD is "raw". This is most likely NOT a "fat asshole" job, as sound spectrum of first CD looks near-identical to CDs provided by Stucco Holmes, supplied by friend who acquired them from original taper)
17 - Magic Fingers
18 - Broken Hearts Are For Assholes
19 - I'm So Cute
20 - Andy (tape flip/cut @ 5:05)
21 - Drafted Again
22 - Bobby Brown
23 - Ms Pinky
24 - Love Of My Life (with sing-along audience participation)
25 - Illinois Enema Bandit

Notes: Received the better sounding and more complete version in a snail-mail with Pat Buzby (thanks!) and pitch corrected the recording (+41 cents in SF 7.0 for all you fanatics out there) then filled a few seconds here and there with my source.

"I suspect this will be one hell of a show Barry..." I was about to thank you for the upgrade until I realized I either never had this one or lost it or something. headhammer

So, thanks for sharing this with us ZP! ( And pbuzby & erroneous of course. Where is erroneous by the way?)

Kind regards,
