Hello ZFT,
Just wondering if there's a chance that the UBC GYM, VANCOUVER, BC, 1ST OCTOBER 1975 concert might be amidst the archive tapes somewhere?

There is a bootleg of this concert on 2 CD's that came out last year but as anticipated people who have gone out and purchased this set have noted very poor audio quality.

Is there a possibility an official from Frank's Master tapes if they exist may come out one day?

Thank you,
Sean.

I notice a vinyl release of this very same concert was also released on a double LP, must have coincided with the CD release.

That concert has been available for many years, it is not a recent discovery. It can be downloaded quite easily elsewhere, don't pay money for this crap. It's a good show with an interesting setlist.

My late buddy Dave went to the show, here's a pic of his ticket.

Any Downers from this show is one of the great moments in Zappa history.

Thanks for the heads up TwentySmallCigars,
I'm starting to delve into the wonderful world of Zappateers so perhaps that might yield some joy on the matter.

I've already discovered a complete Youtube performance of the 1988 Barcelona concert which I found a relatively cheap DVD of previously. The 2 look the same but audio is a touch better on the DVD(even though the DVD itself is no doubt a bootleg also.)

Here's hoping better quality versions from the vault appear one day.

The Barcelona DVD on the site you've just discovered is the best one out there. Don't youtube it or buy one from an online douchebag online. Grab it in the best quality for free.
