Oh, my goodness, what an amazing concert! I pre-ordered my copy almost as soon as I got the e-mail from the ZFT, and I was NOT disappointed. Not one bit! The Persuasions had an excellent opening performance for the 7:30pm show, and the Mothers utterly blew the roof off Carnegie Hall. I wish this album/record had been up for a Grammy earlier this year, 'cause it more than deserved to "bring home the gold."
All you Zappa faithfuls out there, if you don't own this brilliant piece of Mothers history, buy it as soon as humanly possible! Also, has anyone picked up any of the recent Mothers/Zappa remasters? I've been trying to collect the old LPs, but almost the entire catalog is available on iTunes, and I'm kinda done with CDs (except for special releases like Dave's Picks).
And nothing but, right now.
Nice box. This era is a bit out of my comfort zone, but I'm enjoying the ride so far.
But I'm posting mostly to try out the new format...
Currently lined up for the turntable are

Listening to Frank Zappa and The Mothers Of Invention at Carnegie Hall - Oct. 11, 1971. A 4 disc set which has both the 7:30 & 11:00 shows, as well as the opening set by The Persuasions from the 7:30 show.
Well...........tomorrow is the 40th anniversary of 08-27-72 so I'm getting started on it now. What a show to go back and listen to!

SiriusXM is playing a Rob Bertrando audience recording from 2/27/77: very good quality! Wonder if there's a soundboard in the vault? Nice Minglewood leads it off.
