1974 First time Zappa... Awesome !
1975 Bad bad worst ever ;-(
1980 Very Good
1981 Even Better
1984 Great

Why was '75 so bad?

It was the third show with Roy on bass and although he was ok it really didn't really seem like Frank was into it.
After seeing the Roxy band the year before it really was a musical letdown.
Frank didn't come back to Portland for five years after that.

Yeah, I can imagine how that could have been a let down after seeing the Roxy band.

What I can't imagine is the '84 band ever being "great". Which means I probably would have liked the '75 show just fine. Robert Martin alone guarantees diminishing returns.

In retrospect I'd take a FZ show from any year just fine. There's recorded evidence from all the eras and I find them all entertaining. The '84 stuff on YCDTOA Vol. 3 is a lot of fun.

^ Do you have a least favorite Zappa line up, KUlll? (Is there a thread here for rating line ups?) Roxy is the one I listen to most.

It's his fashion sense, isn't it?

hmmmmm...

i may or may not have done that.
it HAS to be one or the other, right?

if i am responsible, i apologize.
i was up late a week or two ago charring the midnight oils, chortling,
and reviewing some old slapsticky/miscellaneous files.
i actually mnged to eliminate a great deal of the dispersed garbage.
again, i apologize if i happened to sink a treasure or two upon doing so.

and one more thing, gang...
let's give it up for coevad
for always knowing where the true and unadulterated solutions can be found.

kudos manx!


as it always was,
mngmnt

August 26 1984 my brother in law took me to see Frank Zappa at the pier in NYC. Being only 19 at the time my FZ knowledge was very limited and the show really didn't turn me into a Zappa freak but years later and now fully into FZ I purchased the DVD not realizing this was the show I attended many years earlier. After watching a couple times I started remembering much of the show and still glad my bro in law took me to see my only Zappa show. ( I have seen Dweezil at least a dozen times and cannot get enough FZ).

Montreal Forum 8 november 1981

The forum was packed as usual for FZ in Montreal. He came on, they started into Chunga's, the sound was incredibly good and loud for a hockey rink. When Frank hit the first note of the guitar solo, I swear, everyone's head was thrown back by the IMMENSE sound coming out of the PA. It was sick. The rest of the show is a blur of YAWYIS and a guy yelling Dinah-Moe-Hum continually....Steve Vai kinda stole the show, he was amazing. The encore (i think) was DMH, played at a blistering speed.

I saw Zappa a few times, there was no worst show.....
