    Enjoy, mate! I really like disc 2 of Chicago '78. I may have to fork over and buy a copy even though the first disc doesn't hold much interest past the intro.

    Frank at the Ritz! This is the famous show with Al Di Meola.

    Frank in Berlin. I believe this was the show attended by David Bowie. Adrian Belew defected shortly thereafter.

    Was reading a bit about Zappa last night, I never knew he was pushed off a ten foot stage (onto concrete) by a lunatic fan in '71 nearly resulting in his death and leading to some permanent physical damage. (!)

    That is the kind of thing that would force many into early retirement, I admire him for coming back strong after and continuing to tour.

    FZ post orchestra pit fall.



    Lucky for us, Zappa's months of recuperation resulted in many new compositions, and the albums Grand Wazoo, and Waka Jawaka. During 1972, Frank mainly did short weeked tours assembling LA's top session players for his big band charts. The recorded live results have been seeing the light of day over the past several years with the posthumous releases Zappa Wazoo, Imaginary Diseases, and the recently released Little Dots.

    Re-listening to part 1 of Little Dots, I'm astonished at the excellent quality of this composition and performance. And the fact that FZ left this and all the other stuff in the can for the rest of his life.

    Kind of a murky b&w film, but great see this band in action. And FZ opening with Deathless Horsie on his SG guitar.

    Can't listen to it again, but it's available on this side of YouTube in maybe a different upload by someone else. It has less than a hundred views so far which will soon change as it's really good. Nice to hear Zappa stuff you don't know already!.

    Incredible this is not the Grand Wazoo big band but just the Petit Wazoo smaller band. It sounds like a Big band often. It's also a thin line to modern classical at times. Maybe modern classical is not dead as well?
