This mostly instrumental live set features a variety of musical sketches for material released later in Frank Zappa's career, such as "Greggery Peccary" and "Bebop Tango." Led by a six-piece horn section, the material tends toward jazz-rock improvisation, with Zappa at one point taking musical direction from the audience. Unexpectedly dynamic and vibrant-sounding, this set is a fascinating example of the composer at his most creative and entertaining.

Frank Zappa - Thing-Fish (1984) [2CD] {1995 Ryko Remaster}

Like his masterpiece JOE'S GARAGE, Zappa's THING-FISH is an epic rock opera on a grand scale. The comical narration by Ike Willis in the title role, with his own Amos-&-Andy-ish dialect, may seem like harmless buffoonery on the surface, but there is a dastardly evil undercurrent. The overall theme is the attempt by the establishment to systematically do away with certain undesirables in society. Instead, bizarre mutations called the mammy nuns are created and proceed to overtake mankind through the context of a Broadway show.

Official Release #109. Original Recordings And Mixes Produced By Frank Zappa. Little Dots contains more recordings of the under-documented Petit Wazoo Ensemble, which toured at the end of 1972 (previously heard officially on Imaginary Diseases). Again, the sound isn't pristine here, but it's quite listenable. The show starts with a very early version of "Cosmik Debris," but other than that and "Rollo" the material is all new (mostly due to being largely improvised). "Little Dots, Pt. 1" is a previously unreleased piece that features bassist Dave Parlato and drummer Jim Gordon in dialogue, joined by FZ on guitar about halfway though. "Little Dots, Pt. 2" kicks off with a Tony Duran slide solo, and heads into a trombone solo followed by another FZ guitar solo.

1970 BROADCAST BY FRANK & THE SECOND MOI Recorded during a relatively obscure part of Frank Zappa and the Mothers' history, the broadcast on this CD, from 18th June 1970 in Holland, comes from the first tour by the Flo & Eddie line-up of the group, who had performed their first gig with Zappa just five days earlier. Indeed, during the introductory interview, the presenter feigns surprise to see you back, when it was announced last year that the Mothers had broken up.

Official Release #108. Original recordings produced by Frank Zappa. In September of 1978, Frank Zappa took the stage with his rockin' teenage combo (Ike Willis, Denny Walley, Tommy Mars, Peter Wolf, Arthur Barrow, Ed Mann, and the great Vinnie Colaiuta) at the Uptown Theater in Chicago. This album is the entire show and fans are going to love it. The leadoff track is a cool unheard guitar instrumental called "Twenty-One." Played in a 21-beat rhythm, it seems related to "Thirteen" from around the same time period (on YCDTOA, Vol. 6). "Easy Meat" features an earlier arrangement and a nasty guitar solo, while "Village of the Sun" adds a weird interlude with some additional lyrics that sets up the vamp for another fantastic guitar solo.

(Book). If Howard Kaylan had sung only one song, the Turtles' 1967 No. 1 smash hit "Happy Together," his place in rock-and-roll history would still be secure.

This Vaulternative Records concert release finds Zappa and band at the Uptown Theater, Chicago, Ill - September 29, 1978. Of the two shows played that evening, the late show is captured here in it's entirety. As you would expect, the concert delivers with a good blend of fan favorites, blistering guitar solos, audience participation, on-the-spot improvisations and stellar playing from a talented band line-up.
