The entire original KSAN, CKGM, WLIR, CBC FM and King Biscuit Flower Hour Radio Broadcasts
Incredible performances from San Francisco, Montreal, New York and Vancouver
Over 60 tracks, professionally re-mastered with background liners and rare archival photos.
Showcasing the iconoclastic rock star’s provocative comedy routines alongside typically complex music, these historical performances, broadcast on US radio, feature material from 200 Motels, older songs, jazz fusion, touches of Zappa’s beloved doo-wop and much more, with plenty of ingenious musical flourishes and rabble-rousing audience interactions. Joined by notable figures in Aynsley Dunbar, Terry Bozzio, Adrian Belew, Howard Kaylan and many others, this is a must for all Zappa fans.
