I guess I'm a sucker for still liking this (and Philly '76)...

I think they are both irresistible - thanks, gz -- :)
[though I have to admit I would have liked them a tiny weeny bit better, if they had lower dbs (Buffalo) or a clearer mix plus a touch of noise reduction (Philly) -- with the YCDTOSA 'Gas Station' giving away how Philly could have sounded]

I have been listening to this album a lot lately, one of my favourites at the moment.
What struck me was the lack of instrumental songs, Apart from the opener Chungas revenge there are none,
my question is for all you live tape collectors out there, is this quite rare? I have a few live tapes myself and watched Zappa live twice in 88, but this is the only concert i have seen so far with so few instrumental songs in the set.

Not many instrumentals in 1980, yes. In 1981 FZ wrote some new pieces and rearranged some old ones so that there were several (Envelopes, Sinister Footwear, Alien Orifice, What's New In Baltimore/Moggio).

Have been listening to this album lots recently. It's fucking killer. I love the extended rap during Dancing Fool when FZ shouts "GET FUCKED ALL NIGHT LONG".

My favorite part of the album might be HONEY DON'T YOU WANT A MAN LIKE ME. It's a pretty lackluster song everywhere else and sounds like a demo on Lather but it is absolutely killer on here. Even if FZ keeps fucking up.

I don;t know if any one else noticed but in Torture Never Stops from 10:50 to 14:32 (Tommy's solo) they play the chord progression of the solo part in Alien Orifice.
Style and feel are totally different but it's the same chords.
