Zappa & The Mothers - Paris '1968 Outstanding performance live from Paris. This was the final night of the Mothers 1968 European tour, and finds the band pulling out all the stops to deliver an outstanding show. Broadcast on Radio France, its highlights include one of the best renditions of King Kong they ever gave and a superb Hungry Freaks, Daddy, as well as some typically acidic repartee from Zappa. It s presented here together with background notes and images. Improvisation 8:49 King Kong 19:54 Plastic People 8:03 Hungry Freaks, Daddy 5:32 Son Of Mr. Green Genes 7:49 The String Quartet paris Frank Zappa Germany '68 This DVD contains a filmed rehearsal of Frank Zappa and the Mothers Of Invention at the legendary Beat Club in Bremen, Germany, on 6th October 1968. The music is largely one long improvisatory continuous performance rather than a run-through of their greatest hits, but is punctuated by Zappa directing the band to play the opening themes of some of his more well-known pieces. Thus we are able to experience interesting renditions of King Kong, A Pound For A Brown On The Bus, Sleeping In A Jar and Uncle Meat. Also played was an instrumental version of Let's Make The Water Turn Black, an early example of Prelude To The Afternoon Of A Sexually Aroused Gas Mask, a stab at the Prelude To Act 3 of Lohengrin by Richard Wagner and a nod towards Octandre by Edgard Varese.Quality 8.5/10 Proshot
