Zappa, Frank - Vancouver Workout 2 x CDs

SKU 21-ZCCD031
"Given his reputation for musical experimentation, snarky humour and love of controversy, it was generally expected that during the early years of the 1970s chart success would remain an elusive ingredient for the Frank Zappa catalogue. However, high sales of two mid-'70s albums - Over-Nite Sensation (1973) and Apostrophe (1974), which hit 31 and 10 respectively on the Billboard chart - reversed this former trend, and in turn pushed Zappa into the big league commercially. Following his dissolving of the original Mothers Of Invention in 1969, Zappa recorded and toured with a regularly changing line-up of session musicians and former Mothers who, as early as 1970, he was again tagging MOI (or simply 'The Mothers'), whatever motley brigade he had chosen to work with - and it was during this time that he had his aforementioned biggest successes. This recording was taken from a performance by Frank Zappa and a late period Mothers Of Invention, recorded at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver on 1st October 1975, while touring in support of Apostrophe. Accompanied by Napoleon Murphy Brock, Terry Bozzio, Roy Estrada and Andre Lewis, the set was broadcast by local FM radio. Performing a mixture of material, including numbers dating back to the 1960s ('Lonely Little Girl', 'Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance') as well as songs from the yet-to-be-released Bongo Fury and Zoot Allures albums, this show demonstrates Zappa at his mid-1970s best, captured at a major creative turning point in his career."
