Review by Cygnus X-2
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Taken from a concert in Australia in 1976, this album features one of the most stripped down versions of Zappa's touring bands, featuring just one guitarist, bassist, drummer, saxophonist, and keyboardist. Fortunately, all the musicians are capable of playing the material well and some of the best mid-70s material get represented on this album. Most of the setlist is derived from the Zoot Allures/Bongo Fury albums, but there's a lot of material from earlier albums and even a few unreleased songs at this point. The one thing about this album that sets it apart from most of the other Zappa live ventures I've listened is the down-to-earth nature presented throughout the entire show, and the band's cohesiveness also allows for a dynamic and very intuitive live excursion.

Early versions of The Illinois Enema Bandit and Keep it Greasey show Zappa experimenting with pieces before they get their official release (for the first one it was Zappa in New York, and the latter was released in a slightly more complex version on Joe's Garage). My favorite pieces are the instrumentals Black Napkins and Zoot Allures, which have wild extensions and Zappa really sets the mood for the entire album with his fluid, emotive guitar solos that rip up the stage. Other songs like Chunga's Revenge and Advance Romance show the versatility and the fluidity of the band.

The more vocal pieces like Wind of Workin' in a Gas Station and Dinah-Moe-Humm don't disappoint either, although there are better versions of the latter, it's nice to see a live version of the first one (it's a rarity on live albums from what I've gathered). The ending medley of Camarillo Brillo and Muffin Man is also one of the best live concoctions Zappa would create (watch the Baby Snakes version of this piece and you'll see what I mean).

Overall, this is a great live set, that while a bit difficult to find, is definitely something to look out for. Fans of the mid-70s version of Zappa's music will definitely find a lot to enjoy with this album. I can't say it's the best live album from him I've listened, but let it be know that this is one of the better ones.

Review by Evolver
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover & JazzRock/Fusion Teams
4 stars This was the first of the "Vaulternative" series, where the ZFT began releasing less than pristine recordings for their historic value. And this one provides quite a bit to Frank Zappa's history.

In 1976, Zappa toured with one of his smallest bands (and I believe this may have been the last tour where he was the only guitarist). With only drums, bass, keyboards and sax, this two CD set provides pared down versions of many of Frank's seventies classics. And there's an added bonus. Original Mother Roy Estrada is back on bass. While he is not as polished on the instrument as most of the bassists since he left, and a few bad notes are apparent, he manages to keep up with Zappa's difficult compositions. Also, his distinctive falsetto, and the chance for Zappa to play him like an instrument, are always a treat.

While there is a fine array of Zappa's sixties and seventies music, the real gems are the early arrangements of then-unreleased songs. The Torture Never Stops is faster, not as eerie as the later versions, but has some cool harmonies that don't appear on other recordings. Wind Up Workin' In A Gas Station has some silly audience participation stuck in the middle. Keep It Greasy is much more sparse than later versions.

Canard Toujours is one of my favorites here. It actually is made up mostly of the original theme that eventually was reworked into Let's Move To Cleveland. Kaiser Rolls, a song that as far as I know only appears on this album (so far), is a fairly simple pop song.

The sound quality is very good, although in a couple of spots the master tape was deteriorated, and snippets from lesser recordings (bootlegs?) were expertly inserted to keep continuity. Luckily, these sections are short. Kaiser Rolls was one of the affected songs, and Gail insisted a complete rendition of the song should be on the album, so a better recording is tacked on at the end.

This is an excellent concert, with fine performances of material that cannot be found elsewhere.

And my wife & I are mentioned in the insert that came with the CD (that's not as impressive as it sounds).

5 stars The sound quality may not be pristine, but this 1976 recording in Sydney pulls out all of Frank's tricks. In addition, this small five piece band is not properly documented live until this particular 2 CD set. Many of the old favorites are here, but the real highlights are the as yet unreleased tu ...

4 stars A typically brilliant live show by FZ. Not my favourite line-up/period and there are better versions of many of the tracks on the "You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore" series.
