"Roxy by Proxy is a live album by Frank Zappa, recorded in 1973 and released posthumously... It's the first compilation made from digital mixes created in 1987 by Frank with Bob Stone at FZ's home studio, The Utility Muffin Research Kitchen. The sequencing plays like a full show while...Ruth Underwood takes the listener on stage at the performances in her song by song liner notes.
Roxy by Proxy, consists of unreleased material from the December 9 & 10, 1973 shows recorded live at The Roxy Theatre in Hollywood, California. In late 1974, parts of these concerts were released on the double-LP set Roxy & Elsewhere. That album mixed material from these shows with music recorded a few months later, all of that material overdubbed and remixed. Here, material different from any of that used on the 1974 release is presented as the audiences in attendance heard it (without any studio overdubs)."
