Notes

This album was originally released on Zappa records in March 1979.
It was digitally remastered for CD in 1989 for URMK. FZ approved master, 1993.

Track 1 - basic track recorded live at the Odeon Hammersmith, London. Over-dubs: lots of 'em.
Track 2 - basic track recorded live at the Odeon Hammersmith, London. Over-dubs: lots.
Track 3 - basic track recorded live at the Odeon Hammersmith, London. Over-dubs: lots.
Track 4 - basic track recorded live at the Odeon Hammersmith, London. Over-dubs: lots.
Track 5 - basic track recorded at the palladium, NYC. Over-dubs: feedback guitar.
Track 7 - live instrumental recorded at the Deutschland Halle, Berlin. Over-dubs: none.
Track 8 - titled "We've Got To Get Into Something Real" in the booklet.
Track 9 - basic track recorded live at the Odeon Hammersmith, London. Over-dubs: lots.
Track 10 - Special Note: the bass part is extracted froma four track master of a performance from Goteburg, Sweden 1974 which i had Patrick O'Hearn overdub on a medium tempo guitar solo track in 4/4. The noted chosen were more or less specified during the overdub session, and so it was not completely an improvised "bass solo". A year and a half later, the bass track was peeled off the Swedish master and transferred to one track of another studio 24 track master for a slow song in 11/4. The result of this experimental re-synchronization (the same technique was used on the Zoot Allures album in "Friendly Little Finger") is the piece you are listening to. All of the sensitive, interesting interplay between the bass and drums never actually happened...also note, the guitar solo section of the song "Yo' Mama" was done the same way.
Track 11 - basic track recorded live at Deutschland Halle, Berlin. Over-dubs: none. Note: This selection and "Rat Tomago" were recorded on a portable four track Scully. The sound quality is not as clear as other parts of the album, but what the fuck...
Track 12 - basic track recorded live at the Odeon Hammersmith, London. Over-dubs: lots.
Track 13 - basic track recorded live at the Odeon Hammersmith, London. Over-dubs: a few.
Track 14 - titled "City Of Tiny Lights" in the booklet. basic track recorded live at the Odeon Hammersmith, London. Over-dubs: a few.

Track 16 - basic track recorded live at the Palladium, NYC. Over-dubs: lots.
Track 17 - basic track recorded live at the Odeon Hammersmith, London. Over-dubs: lots.
Track 18 - basic track for vocal sections and middle of guitar solo were recorded live at the Odeon Hammersmith, London; guitar solo is from a four track recording made in some little town outside of Nurnberg that i can't remember the name of. Over-dubs: lots.
