Randy Merkel you must be high -- LOL
I agree that the Return To Forever set got louder and louder as it went until I had to put in earplugs, but the ZPZ set sounded wonderful and clear to my aging ears. It’s really too bad that the sound man insisted upon making true Frank’s old adage about audiences demanding the ‘ultimate pumping of the rhythm section’ by pushing the sound up and up continually during the headliner’s set. It’s needless and irritating. Oh well ….
Despite all of this, the tandem set was one of the best sausage fests I’ve attended in years. I only wish that the entire show had been Zappa Plays Zappa. I was just settling into the band when their set ended.
So great to find you again after all these years. Shoot me your coordinates at firstname.lastname@example.org
-- would love to catch up with you my long lost pal ~~ : *
