I truly love this release and cannot get enough of it. It was well worth the wait.
It's raw and sweetly mixed - Inca Roads blew my socks off on first listen - George Duke at his finest!!!
Best Zappa lineup ever, in my opinion - and WHAT an incredible document of that place in time.
I cannot wait for the film's release.

Frank is actually the most disappointing part of this release, his tone is just weak. I vastly prefer the road tapes concert from earlier in the year.


Yer not alone! Foggy G comments on the European '73 tour page of WOIIFTT:

Quote:
For some reason, this short little European outing seems to bring out the best and most interesting guitar playing of 1973. To my ears, his solos from the earlier portion of this year tended to be rather non-descript, and frequently fell into a rather predictable and uninspired competence, while his solos from the Fall tour suffered from a trite guitar sound and Frank's least diverse guitar playing.


Yeah, I agree. What made FZ go for such a trite sound? If FZ had a way of sampling this feedbacky tone that ruins "Dupree's" to Synclavier, it would've fit in with the arrangements of "Jazz from Hell" perfectly. It's that trite.

Just realised the ikettes bit of montana (without the ikettes) is on RBP, on duprees paradise?
Anyways, I think the guitar parts on RBP are excellent, in the context that he's playing very complicated parts nearly all through it, note perfect generally, so having a gear of two left for the solos is well excusable. His rhythm playing is really clear, moreso than on most albums.
