Was he always though? What about the factors that lead him to what he became?

He was a vegetarian. That says it all, right there.

Amazed? Why should death be a closed door on criticism?

WOWY KAZOWIE KAWOKA WAKA AMAZING.

This set is an absolute must have for any hard core Frank Zappa fan and definitely for those who only seemed to like the Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan era.

This set was rather special by including the Persuasions Show which featured as a warm up before the Zappa band played. Really enjoyed it and it was a nice sharp contrast to Frank's always amazing performances but what really is amazing with this release is the superb quality of the recordings. I was anticipating a lot worse but they polished up really well and shine in all there sonic glory for us fans to enjoy for years to come.

The concert ticket replica was a nice touch and the booklet is top notch(in fact a better booklet than appears in the Roxy Box set to be honest.) The Arf!, Arf! Arf!, Arf! Arf! Arf! and Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! signifying discs 1,2,3 and 4 respectively was rather cool and something different. The artwork was also really cool printed on the discs and kind of made my mind think 'Barking Pumpkin Records' instantly.

For me, this concert showed what I'd always thought when listening to the now ultra famous 'Joe's Garage' albums. That is that they must have been some of Frank's easiest albums to record because he had already worked these out years ago and so perhaps this set will excite the fans of the Joe's Garage albums as well when they hear an obvious pre-cursor to that release performed live years earlier. I also think of the Turtles singers era when thinking of the whole Joe's Garage concept(life on the road with a rock band in music and what it can do to you. Did Frank actually have a few band members who went that way??)

Serious fun and well worth the price.

For the record the Zappa online web store still has copies and you'll not only support ZFT direct you'll also get the set for the RIGHT price not what some greedy record store sales man/woman believes there worth.

ROCK ON and enjoy fellow Zappa fans.

8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) /10 pumpkin rating for this fan. (The Halloween 77 box set still beats it but these performances are top notch as well.)
