5 stars Even better than The Best Band..., here the guys are closing the 80´s with a surprising powerfull band, with a wind section that worth a FIVE without doubt. The rest of the guys are workin´ hard to sound as good as ever, including Zappa, that is obviously inspired on guitar, in some stupid but funny lyrics and as a composer, off course, the compositions here show that he´s at his finest hour.The whole first disc is an amazing collection of Zappa live, with lots of nem material. The second one goes in the same way, and when they´re listened to in a sequence, the real idea of a memorable Zappa live act come to your head and simply blow your brain. Fascinating. Altough some guys argue in benefit of The Best Band... as the best record of this period I must say that both are excellent, but the wind section and the new material here, including the fact that the sound quality here is top notch, with the almost complete abscence of 80´s plastic sonority, make this record even better than The Best Band..., altough both are FIVE stars efforts. To show that are not overrated comments here, just check to this line-up (especially if you´re are yet introduced to Zappa´s world in the 80´s):

- Frank Zappa / lead guitar, synth, vocal - Ike Willis / rhythm guitar, synth, vocals - Mike Keneally / rhythm guitar, synth, vocals - Bobby Martin / keyboards, vocals - Ed Mann / vibes, marimba, electronic percussion - Walt Fowler / trumpet, flugel horn, synth - Bruce Fowler / trombone - Paul Carman / Alto saxophone, Soprano saxophone, Baritone saxophone - Albert Wing / Tenor saxophone - Kurt McGettrick / Baritone saxophone, contrabass clarinet - Scott Thunes /electric bass, mini moog - Chad Wackerman / drums, electronic percussion

Are you convinced? Pure entertainment. Get it.
