Very cool.

*Waits for the 'tards to complain about it being another F&E show.

Not listed yet on zappa.com or the Barfko Swill store, but it's already on Amazon. I wonder if the Z kids are phasing out the mail order service.

Even though I'm not a big fan of the Flo & Eddie era, this is excellent!


And it's also worth pointing out that the ZFT titles, Lumpy Money & Road Tapes, Venues #1 & #2, are being re-issued...

Of course not... :oops:

Don't get me wrong, i am very happy with this new Road Tapes.
Also looking forward to whatever is going to be released with the help of Alex Winter his Kickstarter campaign.

But yet again, this official Zappa-website is the one with any lack of decent info about the new release.

Hell yeah, I love this series.
Looks like a couple of good set lists.
Sign me up.

Excellent news. I would have guessed #3 would be a Bongo Fury set, or something from the '80s. Anyone who would complain just isn't a fan of Flo & Eddie period. I'm glad this is '70 & not '71. There is quite a bit released so far from '71 lineup w/ Jim Pons on bass.

Other than parts of Chunga's Revenge, there really isn't any material officially released of the '70 band w/ Duke/Simmons unless you count the Beat The Boots albums - Freaks & Motherfuckers, Disconnected Synapses, & Tengo Na Minchia Tanta. Playground Psychotics has dialog and backstage antics only from 1970.

I hope we see a new Road Tapes every 3-4 months until all the gaps are filled. Give us a Hot Rats show regardless of sound quality, and a '74 10 yr Anniv show - something that would make Unmitigated Audacity obsolete. :wink:

Even considering the bad sound quality and that this band is not on top of my favourites (nothing against it, though), Freaks & Mother*#@%! is one of the best BTBs, great gig, with great solos. This should be good.

Yes, I amend what I said. It is not the worst sounding BTB at all, seems like a soundboard. One crappy sounding is the Unmitigated Audacity, but it has one of the most peculiar set lists ever, with the Freak Out! Medley...

Great and worthwhile set lists. I do agree that some of the BTBs of this era are good listens even though crappy sound. I have high hopes and really don't care whether they sell through zappa.com. It is sad that there is on advertising on this site. I do wonder if this is the beginning of the end for it. I think that someone has to figure out marketing, because at least the ZFT under Gail whetted your appetite.

New world...

This is being released via universal, so maybe they will have some advertising on it, advertising on this site seems pointless as they are preaching to the converted, and at last a release where I don't have to moan or ask if it's going to available via digital, yay!

While Flo & Eddie MOI are generally over-released, it has really been the 1971 band (though an RT venue release from May '71 with a performance of "Twenty Small Cigars" would also be an asset). There's several interesting treats:

1) You get to hear the origins of Nancy & Mary Music (feature as it does both King Kong and Pound for a Brown, a source for the guitar solo bit)
2) You'll possibly get to hear Chunga's Revenge with the Clap as it was done, more or less, with the Hot Rats group studio and live. There's only one CR performance from December '70 which I suspect only had a guitar solo and was more akin to the 80s Chunga's thus.
3) The OCLT medley performed by Mark and Howie. Really curious, how is "Oh No" going to come off on the record and how is (most probably) Howie going to stack against Ray (who sang it in May '70).

To sum up, all of these are in fact a refreshing alternative to what the Vaudeville MOI would be doing the month after: lots of groupie opera and related tunes. That aspect separates it from other F&E era releases.

Stumbled on this when mentioned on the Kickstarter comments page. You'd think with all the Zappa accounts I follow on social media they would of said something haha. I'm in. I'll pre-order on amazon.ca when it shows up. The Flo & Eddy stuff is good enough for me

Judging from Nancy and Mary music, this may be a very dynamite show!
