4 stars Frank Zappa is much better live than in the studio, and this is just one more album that proves it. If you compare the studio versions of "Brown Shoes..." and "Tinsletown Rebellion" to the live versions on this record, you'll hear that live the songs just sound more exciting and not as forced. The musicians are all so good that they fiddle around with the music at will and improve on it spontaneously. Tracks like "Panty Rap" and "Dance Contest" are fun to listen to once in a while, but get old very quick. Other than those two, the album is superb and has some of the best live Zappa stuff I've heard so far. As always there is amazing Zappa guitar, so you can always at least just listen to "Easy Meat" and "Now You See It- Now You Don't" over and over again.
