What a fantastic ZPZ show! Lots of surprises and an excellent setlist! When the video was streaming, it was very clear. And the audio was crystal clear! :twisted:

I loved it. Gumbo variations...

The 'Jack Bruce' bass solo was perfection he did not miss a beat, that was my favourite spot of the night, of a night of favourite moments..

Scott Thunes back with a vengeance, despite the resident bass player whizzing on stage sabotaging his Tuners..Dweezils solo on 'pick me I'm clean' was fabulous, and yes 'I promise not to come in your mouth'.

Then listening to the new London Hammersmith CD in the car back home.. I notice Gail was wearing soft pumps on her feet the same baby blue - Superb packaging, one of the best I have seen of the Barfko Swill variety

It's good to see Moon doing something like this. I thought she had shied away from it.

From the first coupla minutes I think it sounds as if they're nailing it!

The acting is less forced than on the Ensemble Modern recording, and the "band" sounds tight and fluent :mrgreen:

After the over-acting in the EM version it should be obvious to anyone tackling this that the narrator needs to be more deadpan. The guy here is not that forced, but he's trying to hard to make an impression. Still, this is an excellent attempt.

Sort of a sloppy performance imo, but who cares? It was still wonderful to hear/see. GP has everything in it. What a great piece of music.

Sloppy? What?

Revised music had some sloppy solo sequences, but I think they nailed Greggery.

It was still great. There were a few moments during difficult sections where it seemed the rhythm was off a bit. I probably shouldn't have said it, because I thoroughly enjoyed it anyway.

I got to watch , from the privacy of my own home , with a stocked refrigerator close by , a magnificent show that also sounded GREAT !

It would have been nice to see ALL of it , including Simmons , but what I was able to get was pleasant as hell. :D

A few bad notes here and there , but so what. I certainly didn't pay for it and damn sure got my money's worth. :wink:

I would think that Frank was looking down and being a proud papa , and I gotta say , there were some parts in Dweezil's solos that actually sounded better than Frank IMO. 8)

Not one bitch to found here .

Great show .. THANKS ZFT :D :D

Don't phink so, Huck. Though Dweezil might be rather okay on the pedals, plays the guitar alrightio, I stopped listening early at Inca Roads (34min?) ya, got an interference swing on the 'oyce frequency, that wooden singer is so full of vibes, he got rolled on a stage too soon. Ney, really, I missed just one show of a surprising caper or so, some sign of "Hallo audience, watch or listen to that and hold on to yer whatever", to feel a more stronger string to the performance, it went all too smooth-like. if you get my drift. Sorry, not my cuppa oyster. Admit, it all varies from the mood your are feeling. That night there was no tada or similar, some drama-effect or syncopes. ..ah-ya, the tracklist consists of too many, effectually solely "lighter" material till I got more than enough from that male voice. You try ... singing;)

What's the best camera management, sounds and transfer when you get a small window, a sixth or seventh of your browser what cannot get enlarged no chance whatsoever to say icon-size, not thinking of full-screen. And like someone said on the previous pages, Dweezil could do with a holiday in more brighter surrealsounds, just me idea. - He is a tremendous dancer, inni?-) breaking no equipment, yo-eh. How on that gig could he play the fiddle? Smoke-on-Trent, any sort of notions for us? ..and what's been the Bri'ish people and pubs like...
