Released:
Label: Zappa Records
This installment of the You Can't Do That on Stage Anymore series skips across several eras. The first disc is a collection of recordings that dates back to The Mothers' first incarnation (1966 to '69). Just a single piece, the comedy skit "German Lunch" breaks the six-minute mark; this is kind of odd for a Zappa release. Disc two is from 1982, and it captures the maestro's funk-meets-hair-metal-meets-new-wave phase. If you're not totally turned off by the highly polished synthesizers and B.C. Rich-style ax insanity (courtesy of a young Steve Vai), the jamming is pretty wicked in places.
