Does this mean that the tape was recently declassified by the Department of Entertainment Security, or did Jon simply forget to put it in the text file?<br>[/quote]<br><br>Since that show is kinda newly leaked out, JN probably updated the web version and forgot to update the text file. My guess anyway.

[quote author=MentalTossFlycoon link=board=concerts;num=1072102016;start=0#7 date=02/10/04 at 13:46:13]<br><br>I bet there's a very interesting story about that tape; where it's been all these years, and how it was suddenly revealed. Was it leaked from the Vault, or has it been sitting in a shoebox in somebody's garage for the past 23 years?<br><br>And who sprang this little nugget on the world? Not many people would have had access to an A+ soundboard of the 1980 tour; and of the usual suspects, not one of them is likely to stand up and announce "Yeah, it was me."<br><br>[/quote]<br><br>I would go with the sitting in a shoebox for 23 years thing. Judging by the length... 63mins... it is probably just another soundboard mix tape.<br><br>4 things about this show that kick ass:<br>1. I am listening to it right now and the groove that Vinnie plays during the "Cosmik Debris" solo is totally fucking sick!! I kinda wish FZ would have stretched that solo out a little more on this tour so they could really jam it the fuck out but he kept it kinda short.<br><br>2. The early arrangement of "Tinseltown" is very cool<br><br>3. "Torture" is crazy!!!<br><br>4. Pick Me I'm Clean just flat out rocks like hell!!! (solo is the one FZ used on TR album)

finally got my grubby paws all over this heavy dose of zapp-o-liciousness; vinnie goes fucking berserk on keep it greasy, the guy double times like no other drummer & barrow's no slouch keeping up with vinnie & ike on the track<br><br>plus i've always thought outside now was underrated as a stand-alone track, in the same league as ¿ inca roads maybe ¿ ... this boot has a superb rendition, frank poots forth a weapons-grade solo that could have easily been extracted for guitar or su&pyg; same with the pick me solo, 'cept my copy gets cut off at a most inauspicious turn of the pick; same with the tiny lights solo, doesn't get cut off & coulda been return of the son of the variations on that ole g-minor carlos chord regression thang again<br><br>the sbd quality doesn't hurt, not as 1-dimesional as most sbd's Image

That show was one day before my life changed forever.  On 10/18/80 I saw FZ for 2 shows at the Brady Theater in Tulsa, OK w/Vinnie and I have never been the same.<br><br>I'm having trouble with the download tho . . . <br><br>Isn't The Carlos Santana Secret Chord Progression (SUNPYGSM) from there too?   It should be the Tiny Lites solo?<br><br>VCF

Bump this for sheer goodness of bootleg. And listen to that Keep It Greasy... (And it's right here on Youtube)

Checked this out on YouTube this afternoon... It was only in 240p but it still sounded worlds better than most Zappa boots. I found myself just sitting and taking in as much of the music as I possibly could for the first time in a while; I really can't say enough good about this, it's easily my favorite post-Joe's Garage concert I've heard yet (I'm ready for the 3-4 people out there who think Zappa concerts in the eighties were the GROOVIEST to disagree with me).

It's one of my favorites. You can tell that part of Pick Me I'm Clean was taken from this one for Tinseltown Rebellion. And a bit of She's Not There in City Of Tiny Lites too.
