Yeah, it's quite good. I am sorry to not have seen Zappa more than once. Both the other mid to late 70s chances (Madison, Berkeley) I was undergoing big changes at the time and did not attend due to very busy months at school and work. Anyway, I saw the Helsinki line up, so it is dear to me. From the concert (I have the set list) I remember clearly only
1 Stinkfoot
2 Zappa doing pantomime with a small portable mattress on stage, possibly some inflatable doll as well.

I was blown away by all the percussion live.

Speaking of Road Tapes, there is an impressive development in Zappa from Tapes 1 (and 3) to the later 2 as performer. Both singing and guitar. He was clearly into performing, not just composing and recording.

I do to. I had compiled some material on Flo and Eddie from all the live bits here and there. I got tired of all of the groupie bits on Fillmore, so kept just the intro, Happy Together and the end. 200 Motels I took just 2 songs, it is so much a concept all its own.

In my teenage room I wore out Chunga's Revenge with Nancy and Mary from the same Minnesota gig.

Yeah, Carnegie. And Ahead of their time. Those are two I never compile from as the sound recording is odd in both. Just have to play the whole thing from time to time.
