  • Description

    Zappa's historic, final American show. The first posthumous archival release from the '88 touring band, the album features 29 unreleased performances including two additional performances from the same tour: Zappa's wild interpretations of the Allman Brothers Band's 'Whipping Post' from the March 16 show in Providence, R.I. and Led Zeppelin's 'Stairway To Heaven' from the March 23 Towson, Md. show. The record is also notable for containing the first official release of the much talked about 'The Beatles Medley'. Fully authorized by the Zappa Trust and produced by Ahmet Zappa and Zappa Vaultmeister Joe Travers, the recordings have been newly mixed by Craig Parker Adams in 2020 from the 48-track digital master tapes. The shows were recorded using two Sony 3324 DASH PCM 24 track tape recorders synced together using a Lynx Time Code Module, thus providing 48 track recording capabilities.
