It is in some European i-Tunes stores too. Taking advantage of copyright loopholes I guess.

It's on Amazon too now...
I used to have this show on a boot called "Zappa in New York 1981"...
Can someone tell me if the quality is the same?
That used to be radio-source, but not all the songs...

Judging from the samples it is a good copy of the frequently traded radio broadcast, where there are cuts in several songs apparently originating from the broadcast.

Yes, available on Amazon UK for pre-order

Can anybody give a definitive view on the sound quality please...?

Amazon wrote:
By the closing months of 1981 Frank Zappa had already released five albums during that productive year. Three of these records were his instrumental guitar collections - Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar, Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar Some More, and The Return of the Son of Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar - initially sold via mail order but later released through CBS. There was also the live double Tinseltown Rebellion and the 2-LP studio set You Are What You Is, released in September. Zappa also hit the road in September 81, performing a largely domestic tour that criss-crossed the US and took in a couple of shows in Canada between September and Christmas. On board for the tour were Frank s latest touring band, comprising Chad Wackerman on drums, Ed Mann on percussion, Tommy Mars on keyboards, Scott Thunes on bass, with Steve Vai and Ray White on guitar. In November the group travelled to New York State, played a couple of shows up north before hitting the city and unloading at the infamous Ritz venue in the East Village on the 17th. The show that night was captured by WLIR FM Radio and broadcast across the East Coast to the delight of Zappa fans who hadn t been lucky enough to secure a ticket. Playing for more than two and a half hours, with special guests Al Di Meola and Brian Peters joining on a couple of numbers, this double CD features the complete gig as broadcast, available here on CD for the first time.

Thanks lad - not sure that is 'definitive' though - one has to be familiar with 'the frequently traded radio broadcast'...

Thanks anyway

Yes, thanks anyway

Here's a cut from the Ritz that is probably similar quality to this Puttin' release.

I just got this and am listening now. Yep it is the old 3-LP bootleg "Assault on New York - Toxic Shock Trilogy" which came out as three separate records and was also know as "Zappa in New York 1981." I think the quality is very good and I own the old 3 record set.

One other good thing is that you get "Sinister Footwear" which was not on the 3-LP set (although you got fade-ins and fade-outs on the records so you knew they played it).

This is worhwhile and mostly sounds very good.

Well, I got no complaints that I paid for it. I will listen to disc 2 tomorrow early at work before most others get to work.
