Zappa at his dirtiest

There is some tracks on this where the guitar just blows your mind. Best version of 'torture'

Some of the stuff here was from Zappa's 81 tour. I caught this tour at the New York City Palladium and I remember the Black Page #2 version. Steve Vai was around 19 years old when he was on this tour and smoked the house that night with Stevie's Spanking and lots of guitar fanatacranktics. But between Bob Harris, Ed Mann, Chad Wackerman and Ray White there wasn't one moment of taking your eyes or ears off that stage. And of course Frank was the glue that held this stuff so together. He was particularly jumpy that night and he kept shifting time signatures and styles on the whole band. Once he was in cut-time, then ska, then slow blues. It just kept swinigin though. I remember looking at Chad Wackerman and thinking he was a nervous awaiting the next call from Frank. But, when I listen back... he was groovin' his butt off. Tremendous! This is one of the best Beat The Boots out there. Get it!
