2 stars This was one of the laziest jobs Frank Zappa did on the Beat The Boots disks, and that's saying a lot. Apparently, he just took the album and made each side one track on this CD. Not that it is worth any more effort than that. It is an obvious audience recording, there are annoying audience members who don't stop talking throughout the show, and the sound quality is at best fair. At least you can hear what all of the instruments are playing.

The performance is nothing special, although you don't hear many recordings of Zappa with such a small touring band (I saw this tour, it was okay, but I've seen better). The only moment of interest is during Stinkfoot, when Frank interrupts the song to chastise some jerk walking through the crowd selling (most likely bootleg) t-shirts.
