Zappa's "Halloween 77" now on Spotify
Here it is:
After listening through only 45 minutes of it yet, we dare to say that it is nothing but a great listening experience. The sound is great. Yes, the repertoire is mostly the same from night to night, but it is a nice repertoire and a great band, AND there are some pieces that we are really extra curious about: Conehead (the instrumental), Wild Love, Pound For A Brown, King Kong...most of them instrumentals, all of them lengthy pieces with solos and improvisation.
It is easy to understand why Frank enjoyed the Palladium dates so much. This special collection allows us to feel the strong response from the audience and how that stimulated Frank and the band. Great release!
