"On no, not another release by the Vaudeville band" was my first reaction when the news were out earlier this fall. BUT after hearing what the Feeding the Monkies at Ma Maison synclavier cd (the most recent FZ release) sounded like, I quickly changed my mind: "Release a Zappa rock album of any sort and I'll buy it right away!"
And I get even more convinced after seeing the track list. This could be a tasty little sucker!
We got two entire shows (although it is said to be in mono) including the complete (?) Divan suite, a super lengthy King Kong, a 13 minutes long solo section in the middle of Billy The Mountain. We also get spiffed up arrangements of two oldies that have not been released until now: Anyway The Wind Blows and Who Are The Brain Police....and the support act show by The Persuasions. Hurray!
