The band who became known as "The Roxy Band" for their performances on the Roxy and Elsewhere album is nearly universally loved by Zappa fans. This set captures them at the very beginning with a pair of shows recorded in Chicago, just the second stop on the tour for this new group, who had started rehearsing just over a month earlier. As you'd expect, the band is tight and George Duke and Ruth Underwood shine throughout. Highlights include Duke's Moog freak-out intro to "Dupree's Paradise" and FZ's guitar solo on "Big Swifty." It's interesting to compare the set list to the Roxy shows, recorded about a month and a half later. Both "The Eric Dolphy Memorial BBQ" and the "Farther O'Blivion" extended jazz suite were dropped from the set by the Roxy shows, and here we hear the intro and outro to "Village of the Sun" that were later cut from the tune. The rehearsal material features "Magic Fingers," which never actually made it to the live set list, and there are additional musical elements used in the "Penguin in Bondage" rehearsal that were not used later. While the shorter tunes from the rehearsal material are full, uninterrupted performances, there are a number of false starts on "Inca Roads" and "Farther O'Blivion." Those are really fun because we hear the rapport between Frank, George, and Ruth as they crack each other up. Ruth's laugh is particularly wonderful. It's so obvious that they're enjoying themselves. Sound quality is excellent even though this is just a three-track recording. The mix is not always perfect, but that's a small gripe and fans will just be happy to have more high-quality material from this amazingly talented band. Halloween 73 is another excellent treat from the Zappa vaults. ~ Sean Westergaard

Album Description

The band who became known as "The Roxy Band" for their performances on the Roxy and Elsewhere album is nearly universally loved by Zappa fans. This set captures them at the very beginning with a pair of shows recorded in Chicago, just the second stop on the tour for this new group, who had started rehearsing just over a month earlier. As you'd expect, the band is tight and George Duke and Ruth Underwood shine throughout. Highlights include Duke's Moog freak-out intro to "Dupree's Paradise" and FZ's guitar solo on "Big Swifty." It's interesting to compare the set list to the Roxy shows, recorded about a month and a half later. Both "The Eric Dolphy Memorial BBQ" and the "Farther O'Blivion" extended jazz suite were dropped from the set by the Roxy shows, and here we hear the intro and outro to "Village of the Sun" that were later cut from the tune. The rehearsal material features "Magic Fingers," which never actually made it to the live set list, and there are additional musical elements used in the "Penguin in Bondage" rehearsal that were not used later. While the shorter tunes from the rehearsal material are full, uninterrupted performances, there are a number of false starts on "Inca Roads" and "Farther O'Blivion." Those are really fun because we hear the rapport between Frank, George, and Ruth as they crack each other up. Ruth's laugh is particularly wonderful. It's so obvious that they're enjoying themselves. Sound quality is excellent even though this is just a three-track recording. The mix is not always perfect, but that's a small gripe and fans will just be happy to have more high-quality material from this amazingly talented band. Halloween 73 is another excellent treat from the Zappa vaults. ~ Sean Westergaard

Frank Zappa, for Better or for Laughs

The more time that goes by since Frank Zappa’s passing on December 4, 1993, the more his absence is cruelly felt in the music world. It's not that we have forgotten him, but we have been searching in vain for someone to fill his boots. Frank Zappa’s genius, both cosmic and comical, has no equivalent today, this is because no one, in almost three decades, has been able to combine such a high level of musical talent with such a brilliant sense of humor. Something Zappa did so well.

Daniel Johnston, A Troubling, Troubled Icon

No one ever sounded like Daniel Johnston. The little known depressive artist found fame thanks to his peers’ recognition. He passed away on September 11th, 2019, at the age of 58; his discography has slowly become the symbol of naïve, lo-fi and hyper-emotional music. It’s never too late to (re)discover this bona fide underground genius, and his heartfelt, authentic music.

The British Blues Boom, Chronicle of a Revolution

If Joe Bonamassa has come back with British Blues Explosion, a year after the Rolling Stones’ Blue And Lonesome, it has cemented the fact that the British Blues Boom was more than just a trend. More than a simple musical trend, it was the interest of a younger generation for the great American blues idols that had been ignored in their country, which led to a real revolution, with three major agitators leading the charge, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, considered in the UK as the “Holy Trinity” of rock and guitar. If they were far from being the only musicians involved, it is through their respective careers that we have discovered that blues, far from being an outdated musical genre, is some kind of getaway to other musical areas and has allowed for endless innovations.
