3 stars Arggh! Did you see the movie? Why did they release it this way? Just a half hour? They could've done this so much better. What the world really needs is a double-record of the Halloween 1977 shows! There were tracks that were 10 times better than these! The movie includes 'Camarillo Brillo/Muffin Man', a fantastic nine minute 'Black Napkins', a great version of 'San Ber'dino', and ten minutes of jamming on 'City of Tiny Lites' sung by the great Adrian Belew. That's what they should have included on this disc. Instead we get 'Disco Boy' and 'Dinah Moe Humm'. The record isn't a complete disaster. 'Black Page #2' is very good and it segues into 'Jones Crusher', a very underrated Zappa song. But I already had the lithoeroticization of 'Titties 'N' Beer' and 'Punky's Whips' on Zappa in New York. Shame on him!
