So here's a fantasy: a humongous CD set of the entire '88 tour! Every note I've heard recorded from that tour just blows me away! (And I was lucky enough to see one night at Royal Oak.)<br><br>Am I the only one to dream of this?

I think what the FZT needs to do is pick *put a number from 25 to 100 here* of the best shows from Frank's career and release them Pearl Jam style.  Simple packaging, good quality, GREAT music.

 all but two of the 88 shows are out there...plus some rehearsals and soundchecks.  The SQ may be a tad poor on some of them...but at least you can hear what the folks on the East Coast and in Europe were able to hear...<br><br> But I agree - I'd like at least one complete show - or maybe one US and one Europe...or the two missing ones...or, what the heck - the entire tour...<br><br> if your not listening to Zappa, your listening to nothing.

Almost the 1988 band: :P<br><br>Neil Sadler<br>Theory Of Forms<br>(Bleeding Arts)<br>Release year: 1999<br><br>Personnel:<br><br>Neil Sadler - Keyboards, Percussion<br>Mike Keneally - Guitar<br>Walt Fowler - Trumpet, Flugelhorn<br>Steve Fowler - Alto Sax<br>Albert Wing - Tenor Sax<br>Kurt McGettrick - Tenor Sax<br>Bruce Fowler - Trombone<br>Bryan Beller - Bass<br>Joel Woods - Bass<br><br>Bryan Beller comment:<br><br>The closest I'll ever come to sitting in with the 1988 Zappa band. Neil Sadler is a post-modern jazz/classical/fusion/rock composer with a mean streak on his charts. This was some of the toughest material I've had to deal with, from both a technique and a theoretical standpoint. I should have focused a little more on my sound for this, as it ended up a little thin, but at the end of the day I was just relieved to have gotten it done at all. You don't even want to know how the ultra-fast swing section (quarter note = 250+ bpm) of "Jazz Bastards" was tracked.

Right at my fingertips are lossless, complete shows of<br><br>March 3 1988<br>March 17 1988<br>May 4 1988<br>June 8 1988<br>and the show in Brighten 1988<br><br>For the attorneys and ZFT informants, I am not stating that I own these, just that they are at my fingertips for unimpeded perusal.<br><br>Someone mentioned wanting to hear the "complete 1988 repertoire", but that implies there was a 'recurring set list' that most bands follow when on a tour. Every show had something exclusive to that performance...there are many 'staples', ie the new BTHW material, but it is obvious in retrospect that Frank was continually adding new old nuggets nearly nightly.

oh no no no,  ur not wrong my friend I was5 yrs old in 88 now 21 and u know I wish I could have seen him live but sadly I was just to young, however 88 is when I started listening to frank. My father listened to him and saw all the shows he could. He showed me the way of the Zappa LOL. But for me, the music is great but I like how he thought just a little bit better. I think thats why his interviews are so popular. Hes a teacher hes a preacher, he's a way of life lOl, but most of all his voice will be heared by my children and their children, while Bill clintons  Goerge Bushes and who evers  will faid to oblivion

Complete ? Every fan dreams about it... The best band & Make a noise have been sold very good i think. (someone even stole my disc two of my MaJNH, if he read that he must know that he's a mastac eternal bastard)<br><br>But just the whole Broadway the Hard Way concert in a vaulternative label would be sincere for the world fans like them or us.

Here is a location to download (for free* sharing and trading sites) many of the 1988 "complete shows" as well as those from other years!! You need to sign-up, but there is no fee. Once registered type in Zappa and there are about 50 different concerts etc to download. The concerts are A- to B- in quality.<br> http://www.easytree.org/, http://www.zappateers.com<br>
