Frank Zappa And The The Mothers Of Invention - Tiny Nightmares Tiny Nightmares
Pop New - LP 2S726 Beacon Island
Sealed 1978 Australian 2LP Original Housed In Full Color Jacket. Cover Images “Borrowed” From The Photo Book The Concerts By Laurie Lewis, Released In 1979 And Mined By Ken For A Number Of Front And Back Covers For His Beacon Islands Label. "There Has Been More Than One Frank Zappa Bootleg Circulated Under The Title Tiny Nightmares. An Earlier Bootleg Included The Entire Broadcast Of Zappa’s Halloween 1977 Felt Forum Concert (The First Of Two Shows There That Evening) As Heard On The Syndicated King Biscuit Flower Hour Program In Early 1978; This Australian Product Is A Two-LP Set That Adds Excerpts Of A June 1973 Audience Tape (Taken From A 2 ½ Hour Concert Tape That Was Circulating Among Collectors In The Mid-’70S), Which Had Been Previously Issued Separately As The Bootleg Ultra Modern Stringbean. The 1973 Songs Have Okay Fidelity, Though There Is Some Distortion. Zappa’s Opening Medley Includes A Prelude That Hints At “Uncle Meat” Before Segueing Into An Energetic Version Of “Dog Breath,” Which Is Immediately Followed By “Uncle Meat.” Zappa’s Humorous (But Excessively Long On This Occasion) Tribute To Dental Floss, “Montana,” And A Rather Distorted Instrumental Version Of “Fifty-Fifty” Conclude The First Side. The Remaining 1973 Tracks Consist Of The Lengthy And Somewhat Tedious “Mudshark,” Made Famous During Zappa’s Fillmore East June 1971 Lp, Which Segues Into A Portion Of “The Be-Bop Tango.” The Band On This Occasion Included Keyboardist George Duke, Violinist Jean-Luc Ponty, And Percussionist Ruth Underwood. At The Beginning Of The 1977 Concert, Zappa Walks On As The Band Plays A Musical Excerpt (Which Eventually Appeared In His Song “Flakes”) And Introduces The Group. This Concert Gives A Better Idea Of What A Zappa Concert Was Like In His Later Years, Where His Musicians Had Been So Tightly Rehearsed They Moved Directly From One Complete Song To The Next. At The Time Of This Spring 1978 Broadcast, Many Of The Songs Had Not Appeared Commercially, Including The Hard Rocking “San Ber’dino,” The Great Punk Parody “Tryin’ To Grow A Chin,” The Intense “City Of Tiny Lites,” The Dark Instrumental “The Squirm,” “Black Page No. 2,” And Another Hard Rocker, “Jones Crusher.” Some Of The Tracks Were Later Re-Recorded With Overdubs For The Lp Set Sheik Yerbouti. Also Present Are Oldies Like “Big Leg Emma,” The Mildly Amusing “Camarillo Brillo,” The Somewhat Silly “Dance Contest” (This Version Was Included In One Of Zappa’s Commercially Issued Videos), And One Of Zappa’s Most Brilliant Instrumentals, “Black Napkins.” Zappa’s Band Includes Keyboardists Tommy Mars And Peter Wolf, Guitarist Adrian Belew, Bassist Patrick O’hearn (Prior To His Journey Into New Age), Percussionist Ed Mann, And The Superb Drummer Terry Bozzio." -Allmusic.com Review.... more details
