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 bought each of the You Can't Do That on Stage Anymore Volumes when they were initially released between 1988 and 1992 (and got a cool, free, crate to put them all in compliments of a coupon in Vol 6)

Every few years I re-listen to the entire set, 1 disc a day for 12 days, I am doing so now, so decided it was time to review all of them (though there are certainly plenty of reviews already)

Vol 1 was initially released in May of 1988 (WOW time flies) and, IMHO remains the best of the series.

Side 1 starts with one of the many tapes of band dialog Frank taped, this one in a FL airport of the 70/71 band, which leads into Frank's introduction of Sofa followed by the song itself (all 71)

After a good instrumental version of Thingfish's The Mammy Nuns, it contains what may be one of the first digital recordings ever made outside a lab. Frank was touring in Europe when Sony lent him one of their PCM encoder prototypes and said `check it out'. He promptly plugged it in the soundboard and recorded the sound check. He chose You Didn't Try to Call Me for this CD and the CD's book tells the story.

Then the band introductions and a version of Trying to Grow a Chin (in which Denny Walley forgets the words) from the famous 1979 Hammersmith shows, followed by some instrumentals from the late 60s original Mothers.

Some more early/mid 70s songs, including I'm the Slime and then you get an OUTSTANDING version of the instrumental 'Big Swifty' by the 1973 band. Contains a good George Duke electric piano solo AND what I consider to be one of Frank's 10 best solos.

Disc 1 concludes with the entire Don't Eat the Yellow Snow story cycle from the same 1979 Hammersmith Odeon show as above.
