  • frank zappa: zappa '88: the last u.s. show
        (2021, 2cd, usa, zappa records)
The latest Zappa release by the ZFT.
Recorded on March 25, 1988 at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, USA, this 2 CD set presents the complete show. Well, minus the two tracks that Dweezil performed on as Dweezil wasn't happy with his performance. These tracks were replaced by recordings of those same tracks, but from another show.

I'm quite pleased with this album.
Sure, Frank would never have released this. He would have picked or put together the best versions from different shows, but that doesn't mean that this isn't a great concert.
And it brings back nice memories of seeing the band in Ghent in 1988 where they also performed The Beatles Medley : Norwegian Jim / Louisiana Hooker With Herpes / Texas Motel
(= Norwegian Wood / Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds / Strawberry Fields Forever, lyrics by FZ)
