Great release. Best thing since the Roxy Performances.
Cool that they left the synclavier piece in there played during intermission.
But man, too much Beatles and other covers towards the end of the show. Still a great performance, just want a little more Frank, but I guess he messed with covers more on this tour. Despite that, somewhere in there got me to laugh out loud, every Zappa album has at least one of those moments, even if I've heard an album 100 times.

Well, it's here. It's quite like Best Band but alsp some several things I never heard by the 88 band. But Frank, I'm just never going to play that Beatles Medley. :roll:

I put it (minus Beatles medley) on my ancient iPod touch. It's an assortment of stuff, all in the iTunes since 2015 when my laptop last crashed. Had to take out some 4 hours of classical from the iTunes to squeeze in the 28GB that fit on the ancient device.

My car will play mp3 CDs, but I rarely sit there long enough to play an entire concert.

Picked it up at my local FNAC. 16.50 euros. Nice package, cool liner notes. Good sound....Torture II solo is bitchen as expected.
Thx ZFT, you put it out this way, and i'll keep buying the music as I've been doing for 40+ years now.....

Listened to it last night with RG she really liked the horns a lot and she picked up on the difference in the sound of Franks guitar compared to earlier live shows, Grasshopper may be ready to snatch the pebble from my hand and leave the Temple... :mrgreen:

Nice, loved that show. While Frank Zappa had a composition Kung Fu I am thinking Zappa meets Kung Fu.

Kung Zappa Fu , Zappa '88 The Last Show gets the Victor Flemming Dark Side of the Rainbown treatment with Kung Fu video.

The irony of voter registration with walking on rice paper. The Rice Paper Fail of a young Kwang Chai Kane reminds me of harsh marks world leaders leave on God's Grey Earth. Many fail of great magnitude, so sometimes the vote we cast is to get someone out with new hope. Can't Immagine many getting a second chance. The only pebble some politicians deserve is snatching one up in a prison yard.

"You must walk the rice paper without leaving any marks. This will signify that you can walk without making any sounds."

Question(s).

1. I just got my CDs today and it says on the invoice I have digital downloads. It only lists 3 tracks. Do I have access to download only those 3 tracks, or the whole CD?
2. Where do I go to do that?

Thanks

I would suggest you contact Customer Service of the retailer that you purchased the CD from. Enjoy

Ya know, they don't make that to easy in our automated world......I figured someone here had some experience with this.
