I would love to hear a Garrick Theatre show. I know he recorded a lot of them.

So what's really the difference between these and the Vaulternative CDs like Buffalo, Philly, Wazoo? And more importantly will these be CDs, downloads only, or both?

Halloween 1978 complete for me! What was with that stupid half-assed, edited DVD-A anyway?

Perhaps the full Orchestral Favorites concert would be nice.

Does 'road tapes' include video too? Personally, I'd like to see them release the complete performance from "A Token of his Extreme". Audio and video. Without those ridiculous claymation interludes and seizure-inducing fast cuts.

Some early '73, something from the'75 BongoFury tour, a Petite Wazoo selection and a Europe '82 to start with.

I wouldn't mind at all if they are download only. For full shows all I really care about is the music (in FLAC format) plus a PDF file included with all the specs. Fulls shows in bulk like that really don't need any elaborate packaging and besides it may KEEP THE COST DOWN!

Seriously doubt it. Look at the pricing on Mothermania, and Vaulternative full show downloads.

first choice would be a complete '73 jlp show.

followed closely by a complete uncle meat era show a la the "electric aunt jemima" boot.

but honestly, i'd take anything.

wouldn't mind at all if they were downloads only.

Well, when you think about it, in 10 years ZFT has released 5 multi-track recorded shows: FZ:OZ, Wazoo, Buffalo, Philly and Odeon. Remember, before the UMRK mobile, Frank had little access to remote multi-track facilities. But he probably has one helluva collection of 2-track soundboard recordings. So when I read 'Road Tapes', I get the feeling that most, not all, but most of these shows will be soundboards pre '81, much similar to Grateful Dead's Dick's Picks. CD or download, it could go either way.

Gail said Halloween. If she or Joe monitor these threads they know what we would really like ('73 and '75 material). Let's see if any of that comes true. I am very excited by road tapes concept.

That's my point, no information other than Halloween.

When does 7 days equal 4+ years ? I think they have a problem with math.
