Biography

Composer, guitarist, singer, and bandleader Frank Zappa was a singular musical figure during a performing and recording career that lasted from the 1960s to the '90s. His disparate influences included doo wop music and avant-garde classical music; although he led groups that could be called rock & roll bands for much of his career, he used them to create a hybrid style that bordered on ...

I think this is one of the best volumes in the series.

The other tracks were well done and the sound engineering was quite good with the exception of track 1, "The M.O.I. Anti-Smut Loyalty Oath."

The band finishes, Frank says "Good night," and that's it.

As his last volume in this series, it seems quite obvious that Frank was getting in his last laugh. From the very beginning of Disc one and the "Anti-Smut Loyalty Oath", followed by the infamous "Poodle Lecture" (a meeting of several conceptual continuity clues), he seems set on making a disc that is "about sex" (as he admitted in the liner notes). Disc 1 contains some of Franks most hysterical and conceptually relevant live monologues. "White Person" is a good example of the audible effects of Frank's improvisatory conducting style, and "Make a Sex Noise" shows how Frank could play the crowd.

Although the first disc of Vol 6 might be the key to the mythology of Frank's sexual metaphors, disc two sees some of Frank's least accessible stuff. It introduces itself as largely instrumental and improvisatory.

The version of "Catholic Girls" here really brings out the best that Ike Willis had to offer. The voice of Joe come up really clearly here, and his backups really bring out the best of Frank's mastery of traditional harmony with the "don't bother Mary" chunk that outlines relatively traditional resolution practices. The voice of the Central Scrutinizer makes an appearance here, too, and the subsequent inclusion of "Crew Slut" is an extension of the "Joe's" storyline.

A music education lesson happens in the track "Thirteen". One two One two three one two three four seems almost like a tala based on the Indian idea of an additive phrase, and the entire solo is over a single chord. Frank is also joined on stage by the Indian violinist Shankar. Shankar's background is in the Carnatic style, which uses ragas as a source of melodic expression. It would be interesting to see if Shankar was playing in a raga, and if so, which one.

The final chapter in FZ's tribute to all the musicians he has worked with on the world's stages. A lot of these selections are played very fast, and occaisionally sound like they are being rushed through, but you have to take into consideration, these are all live recordings, and they players are probably caught up in the moment. And, as difficult as a lot of Zappa's material is to play properly, the musicians are obviously having a really good time, despite what a hard taskmaster Frank Zappa was.

As stated elsewhere, the first disc in this volume, and some of the second as well, deal primarily with the topic of sex. There is a lot of audience participation on this volume, reminiscent at times of "Tinseltown Rebellion," with selections like "The Madison Panty Sniffing Festival," and all the spoken word parts, like "Farther O'Blivion." He was well-known for going back to earlier material and redoing it with new treatments of similar themes, the format of practically the whole of "Tinseltown Rebellion." And he brought the audience out from their inhibitions, in "Make A sex Noise," and "Tracy Is A Snob." Of course, there are references to egregeous practices, but given a light, humorous take, as in "Lonely Person Devices/Ms. Pinky." Some people can't pull this off, they make you feel dirty after listening, but Zappa's humorous take on these things comes off as well as someone like George Carlin, a true master of language and culture himself.

Disc Two is slightly more varied in its content, but holds the same mood as Disc One, basically a performer and his backing band giving the audience a good, entertaining show.

Despite what you may have previously heard, this is a more than worthwhile slice of live Zappa weirdness. Tasty versions of 'Gas Station' and 'Dirty Love', coupled with a top-flight 'Strictly Genteel' and a good dose of general silliness highlight this collection. 'Poodle Lecture' and 'Lonely Person Devices' are convincing proof you can't do that on stage anymore.

This is the last volume of the series. It contains two CD's, each over 70 minutes long. As with the other albums in the series, it is very good but not great. There is too much talking and very few surprises. Almost all of the songs can be heard elsewhere. And these live versions aren't much different than other live versions already on record. He also concentrates too much on certain bands, especially from the Ike Willis era. There are very few or no tracks from the great Adrian Belew, Becker Brothers or Jean Luc Ponty bands. Some songs are repeated a number of times throughout the series, such as the Torture Never Stops.
Better live CD's to get would be Make a Jazz Noise Here, The Best Band You Never Heard, and many of the "Beat the Boots" Unfortunately, most of the Beat the Boots CD's have the best concert performances, but the worst sound. Vol 5 of this series is interesting because it contains some very old Mothers material.
Volume 6 comes from a wide variety of bands from the early seventies through the eighties. There are some tracks from bands that haven't been represented before, such as the Belew and Becker bands. But, there are only a few of those tracks and they are mostly short. One of the best things about this volume is that it only has a few songs that were repeated from earlier volumes.
The first CD of volume 6 contains songs about sex. Included is a bunch of intros where Zappa talks to the audience and two audience participations. The talking parts are very amusing, but you only need to hear them once or twice. There are some very good and unique versions of a few songs on this disc.
Disc 2 seems to be the leftovers. Every popular tune that hadn't already been included in the series.
