This album (original '92 master) is an everlasting beast I'll never get rid-off.

Agree on Synchronicity (closest to the digital era) - sample rates of mastering speak for itself. All previous releases pretty good IMHO.

This is shocking. I just read about that fire in 2008 for the first time. Thanks to an excellent investigation by the NYT truth about the damage will be revealed (www.nytimes.com/2019/06/11/magazine/universal-fire-master-recordings.html).

If you don't succeed with Firefox (did not work for me) try with IEx under redeem.thesoundofvinyl.com (needs register), this worked for me.

Very poor, highly compressed repress without mentioning. Stay away from this.

Not 100% sure, but the wave-like signature seems to indicate a David Cheppa vinyl cut

Sad thing is that "Son Of Orange County" and "More Trouble Every Day" on Side C of Zappa* / Mothers* - Roxy & Elsewhere were obviously recorded '74 at the "Elsewhere" locations (e.g. Auditorium Theater Chicago, Edinboro State College Pennsylvania) and are missing here on the ... See full review

Very much in doubt that any of the first Zappa Records CDs from the 80s (not RYKO) was released before 1986. Even "Hot Rats" numbered lower (ZAP CD 2) came out 1987. 1985 seems to be taken from prints not from publishing.

As per zappa.com the bonus material is kinda 'best of' selection from each track played during the 4 shows: "the additional discs are loaded with relevant Vault nuggets and more than three hours of unreleased live performances from the NYC Palladium ... See full review

Agree, complete 4 Shows should've been target, also on a fancy USB - release policy not consistent here. Regarding content, maybe it's just the vault material that survived ... nonetheless, these are 96K 24bit digital transfers and it just sounds great.

Very great and faithful (re-) master of the original recordings without those ugly reverbs as on all former official "Zappa In New York" CDs. Unfortunately, there are no relating track- or release details given for the recording dates of these legendary ... See full review
