We went to this last night, the dancing is first class ballet, by halfway through you're overwhelmed with the beauty and are an emotional wreck...it's really something(:

Ahavah

This one's soooo good, 'specially if you like/miss the early Doors.

Manzareks signature keyboards in full bloom, plus layers of new techniques.

All the tracks are different,

but try this one...

..you might go out and buy the album :)

This one has some new but it's mostly heavily remastered and edited 60's versions with modern technology... Lol, you cant fit a BW anthology on one disk, what were they thinking?

Pretty unbelievable the way he thinks in harmony, check out the last 1/4 of this track, (the child is the father to the man rounds)...

Surf's Up

Ir's from the late 60's 20/20 album, it was originally slated for SMiLE which didn't release till 2006, it was a collaboration with Van Dyke who also had a lot to do with Pet Sounds.

Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention
Community Theatre
Berkeley
CA

1974 02 16

As per Charles Ulrich's excellent giglist this is this Mothers incarnation's second concert and it shows: there are instances where they get lost a bit, noticeably on "Approximate" and "Inca Roads". This said, flaws or not, this is an excellent concert and one of the truly essential tapes. First of all, the sound of this band is lovely and all the players are great. There is a lot of energy in the performance and Frank plays some mean solos. The highlights are the early version of the "One Size Fits All" tracks: "Andy" is taken at a slower tempo and sounds more majestic in place, "Florentine Pogen" is performed twice at double speed with a guitar solo in the middle and this is the first non-cocktail version of "Inca Roads" in circulation and, although some bits still need fixes, the bulk of it is already there. Oh, there's also the lyrically mutated version of "The Idiot Bastard Son" which is quite nice! A truly fascinating document from one of the most interesting periods of Zappa's career.

Only talking in general terms here, but I’ve been listening to a lot of the band Focus recently by way of their recent bargain box set “Hocus Pocus Box”. I only knew them from the song Hocus Pocus (which I think is awesome) but I can say that their whole catalog is pretty spiffy. While there is nothing else in their catalog that remotely resembles Hocus Pocus, everything is pretty cool. Sometimes proggy, fusiony, jammy, etc. Flute on some proggy numbers recalls Jethro Tull, some solos reminded me of Santana, some pre-shred era shredding, some numbers could even be called easy listening (in a good way). Has anybody else spent much time listening to these guys?

I have pretty much all their releases (no collections, though), and mostly on vinyl.
"Hamburger Concerto" (1974) is one of my top 5 albums, and one I also have on re-mastered Japanese CD.
First bought it on a weekend trip to Kingston, Ontario, along with "Lamb Lies Down on Broadway" (Genesis), both are outstanding albums. It was a great weekend.
I also bought "Wow! Great Concert" (Beach Boys) at the same time. Not sure why...must have been real cheap. :lol:

Here's a fast version of "Hocus Pocus". Jan Akkerman keeps turning his head away from the camera 'cause he keeps laughing at Thijs van Leer's yodeling. :mrgreen:
