He may be dead but the bills keep coming.

Jimi Hendrix been dead for 40 years but that hasn't stopped him from releasing a new album every couple of years. I guess dead legends of music get some time off from the realm of the dead so as to work on some new material.

I'm pretty sure he isn't paying them.  I actually don't have anything against posthumous albums as long as the material is good.

So they expect me to pay $48 without even seeing the setlist? Outrageous!

A big boo for the cover, hope it's just a teaser. I'll wait for the reviews to see if it's worth the money

Holy expensive...I'll pass, thanks.  Even Magma triples aren't that expensive (well, except for La Trilogie au Trianon).

Same year as Live In New York so I'm sure It'll be a good concert but $48 is a bit steep for me.

That is not expensive at all. This is actually a normal simple CD price down here.

Same as in chile. Awful. It might just be easier to import your CDs from Argentina.

hmmm.... it's cool that its the whole show, but if anyone here has the album "Halloween", there's going to be repeats, since it has songs recorded between October 27-31, 1978. And apparently some of the YCDTOSA series has these songs in their volumes. Besides, there's enough live albums documenting this era of FZ's bands.

anyway..........

from setlist.com
10/31/78 (Tue)  The Palladium - New York City, NY
Set 1: Ancient Armaments, Dancin' Fool, Easy Meat, Honey Don't You Want A Man Like Me?, Keep It Greasey, The Meek Shall Inherit Nothing, City Of Tiny Lights, Pound For A Brown, Thirteen (1) guitar solo on YCDTOSA #6), Ms. X (story told by Warren Cucurullo), Fantasy From A Girl From The Audience, Dinah Moe Humm, Go Cry On Somebody Else's Shoulder/Little Rubber Girl (YCDTOSA #4), Idiot b*****d Son, Bobby Brown, Conehead (1), Suicide Chump, Little House I Used To Live In (1), Watermelon In Easter Hay (1), Stinkfoot, Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance (YCDTOSA #6), Peaches En Regalia, Strictly Genteel, Sofa No.2, Packard Goose (1), Magic Fingers, Don't Eat The Yellow Snow, Nanook Rubs It, St. Alphonso's Pancake Breakfast, Father O'Blivion, Rollo, Camarillo Brillo, Muffin Man, Black Napkins/Deathless Horsie (1)
i think they could still release better stuff from FZ's live catalog. First off, the 1973 band (with Jean-Luc Ponty) is almost treated like it doesnt exist. There is some serious music from that lineup, but they wont release a good quality show of them (the official beat the boots series has them, but they're terrible quality)

also, and i always say it, why not spend the effort in releasing the roxy dvds? at least release a 3-CD set of THAT!

The price I don't mind, if it's quality.  I paid a veritable sh*tload for Greasy Love Songs (aka Ruben & The Jets).  However, for a live session it had best be very good, which if it was why has it not  been released previously?  We apparently have samplers from YCDTOSA, so I will be listening to those before sending any $ Dweezil's way. 
 
Nonetheless, alway glad to see a new Zappa album.  Or a new Hendrix album.  We are consumers; we get to choose.  I do not buy these sight unheard.
Can you tell me where we're headin'?
Lincoln County Road or Armageddon.

But that's NYC; the new set is from Hammersmith Odeon in London.

Compared to some of the prices for single cds on the sight, it could have been $70.
 
Anyway. I have a few concert cds released in Zappa's lifetime that aren't worth much as it is basically the band chatting to the audience and among themselves with very little music being played.

Maybe so for down there, CCVP, but the price of CD's has been dropping for awhile -- at least up here, anyway.  Definitely over-priced, especially considering how much of that material is already available on other releases.
 
I'm with Zomby -- where IS that Roxy DVD stuff??   I mean, I'm gonna be dead before they ever get to releasing that stuff - what's the holdup??  Confused
