April or May '73 at Jadwyn Gym, Princeton University, with Ponty.


I loved this show, sat on bleachers, heard some of his best horn playing, I think that Sal Marquez was in the band also. I have only seen this show in bits and pieces as a download, it would be my dream to get the whole one.

Ruth and Ian and the Fowlers were there, Zappabase says Duke, Just don't remember, but I do remember the Green Genes, Montana and Uncle Meat and King Fuckin' Kong. :D

Best Zappa show I saw was in Portland Or early 1980.
Frank hadn't been to the Northwest for 5+ years and
the fans went quite crazy. " I was one of them"
I always wondered why Frank missed touring in an area so close to LA for that long.
We sure missed some potential great shows> :)
Just found this great link http://home.earthlink.net/~stumark/tale ... 29_ff.html
