live in paris - 1980

Frank Zappa is revered as modern musics greatest innovator, an iconoclast who destroyed music convention with genre-busting funk/blues/psychedelic/heavy rock arrangements, and incredible live stage shows. As a solo performer, and with his groundbreaking band The Mothers of Invention, Zappa recorded 60 albums and collaborated with Captain Beefheart and the London Symphony Orchestra. Rock and rolls sharpest musical mind and most astute social critic, he was the most prolific composer of his age.

Recorded Live in Paris in 1980, this is a rare recording of Frank Zappa performing at the peak of his career with his incredible backing band, including Ike Willis (guitar/vocals), Ray White (guitar/vocals), Tommy Mars (keys), Arthur Barrow (bass) and David Logeman (drums). It was the year after Zappa released two of his greatest albums - Sheik Yerbouti and the masterpiece, Joes Garage and this cracking live show includes the classic Zappa songs Joes Garage, Dancing Fool, Bobby Brown and The Illinois Enema Bandit.

Best wel een aparte DVD. Besteld in AustraliŽ! De opname blijkt een concert te zijn voor de Franse TV. Het logo (INA) staat netjes op de doos, maar ik weet niet of dit legaal is. Prima concert van de 80-band met op de drumstoel David Logeman. Geluid en beeld zijn uitstekend, helaas is dvd erg kort. Leuk voor erbij dus.
