Thanks for the track list. Sounds really good. I'm glad I pre-ordered it. Can't wait for it to come.

No shit, and I got a nice long version of OCLT that I was hoping for.
I was pretty excited about $15 for one disc, two is even a better deal.

A tape collector's dream.

What numbered release is it? Is this the one between CH and UA?

holy shit! It's going to have to sound pretty dire to not be completely amazing! 2 discs for $15 leads me to believe it might sound pretty dire though... they could of pimped this out for an easy $30 with that track list.

Thanks!


But like a few others have said, I'm also going to wait for a few reviews before ordering, since the sound quality might be on par with the Beat The Boots series titles. And IMO, that's not a good thing. And if that is the case, I'll put this new release on an Xmas wishlist instead...

I doubt it will sound like BTB, if so, they could have just kept releasing stuff under that banner.
I am sure it isn't pristine, it is, afterall, a 40+ year old recording. I do, though, think they probably cleaned it up, as best they could.
It can't be worse than any of the other 60's shows I have.

WTF. Just a minute here Disco Boy, this is a show recorded right there in your back yard, from the vault and reasonably priced. It's gotta be better than a boot. Order Now!!!

3 possible un-released tracks ... speculating that this is decent sound, better than the average btb as it's number 1 on the road tapes list ... either way, money order in the mail

Pepe at Zappateers says it sounds good. This sure looks like a wonderful start for a new adventure across the Universe of Z 8)

My guess would be the sound quality on this will be on a level with or better than 'Ahead Of Their Time', probably better without the 80s Zappa's rudimentary digital filterings fogging it up. I'm really looking forward to this.

I love AOTT and if this sounds better than that, it will rank as maybe the best ZFT release

Crazy, I know! And I'm even advertising it in my sig!

But another thing is that musictoday's current shipping rate for international delivery to Canada is $12.70. I seem to remember their shipping rates used to be that high a long time ago but then a couple of years ago, they lowered it by at least half. But now it's increased back to about where it was several years ago. :x

And yeah, in my backyard is almost correct, as I used to live MINUTES from this venue in the '80s!

So, I'll have to either put this release on an Xmas wishlist or wait 'til another title is released before Xmas to save on shipping...

I'm going to guess that first and last tracks on disc one are FZ speeches and that "Flopsmash Musics" is a conducted improv, but still, it looks quite interesting.
