4 stars Another live album with Flo & Eddie (they do best this way), this is an excellent, but overall doesn't do much more than Fillmore East (except in sound quality). Billy the Mountain starts off this show, a 25-minute rock story of a mountain's adventures with his wife is completely funny and interesting throughout even though the references may be completely irrelevant now. After this is a new version of Call Any Vegetable from Absolutely Free! Flo & Eddie do a great job with this new rendition which is particularly funky. Also, Dog Breath is redone here as well, and it's done excellently. New songs are Magdalena and Eddie Are You Kidding? Both being very funny and containing great playing, well the entire album does, but that's default with Zappa. This is not for everyone because a) it's not very welcoming in structure (redone old songs and a 25-minute beginner? b) for the less determined listener there is better Zappa to start with. This is still an incredibly entertaining show, and would be an excellent addition to your collection as a Zappa fan. 8.6/10
