CD Reviews

Screw Clapton/Zappa is GOD
MUDSHARK | was L.I. N.Y. now Scottsdale AZ | 03/11/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Being fortunate enough to live and see Zappa live in N.Y. at the Palladium, I have to say that the baby snakes tour was one of the finest shows/Zappa concerts I've seen. I've seen him at a number of venues, from college auditoriums to M.S.G.. Though he has to play fast through his sets in order to play alot of his materiel, the halloween night shows,(all 3 of them) were all spectacular! This was a night not to be missed. And the best of it is all on one album. Buy it! Play it! You'll love it! You will wish you were there. I guarentee it!! MUDSHARK"
Great stuff-if only it wasn't so short

"The 77/78 banded rocked really hard, and this album gives us a glimpse of that. But man, at 35 minutes this is too short. Imagine going to a gig and it just lasting a half an hour-you feel short-changed. On top of that, the song 'baby snakes' is already on sheik yerbouti. So there are only 6 songs from the concert. They're really good though. Titties and beer is a classic vehicle for zappa and bozzio to make us laugh. Top tune. Black page is one of the great zappa instrumentals and is played brilliantly. Jones crusher comes across very well. Disco boy too. Dinah-moe-humm has some guy we can't see dancing, but it's fun anyway. Punk's Whip is the highlight along with black page. It's not as involved as the zappa in new york version, there's no horn section-still, it is almost as good. Frank has a great, long solo at the end. Pity there aren't more songs on the album though. Thank you"
Some of my favourite Frank Zappa

"This is a great recording in about the best era of Franks music. An amazing version of the Black Page, a very well done Dinah Moe Humm, and honestly the most amazing and mindblowing version of Punky's Whips that I have ever heard. Terry Bozzio must have been on something amazing that night, his drumming is perfection."
