Notes from the taper's helper:

I had the fortune to see Frank a half dozen times of which this event was one.  While it's not board quality sound, it has its own charm given the time frame and what was available for recording at the time. Kick back and a story I will tell.

It was a dark and stormy night - ok, in honesty, it was a great night.  The Nakamichi was actually owned by a friend of mine, Adam (I don't know the model - but it was considered a professional cassette portable recorder and one of the better models available).  He was in the UF College of Broadcast Journalism and he also was a Deadhead, who loved to record the Dead - hence, the good Nakamichi cassette recorder (we used CRO2 cassette tape).  Being a musician, I had a pair of Beyer dynamic mics I used in performance (good quality mics at the time).  We managed to get the mics and recorder into the venue, the Old Florida Gym, in a knapsack.  We knew a lot of the tech people working that night for Student Government Productions, showed up early, and we were ushered in without being frisked.  That night at the concert, Frank's bodyguard busted seven people I counted trying to record.  We sat in the eighth row center left. The first piece of music you hear starts in after Frank had started playing - we had a little difficulty once switching tape in the dark and accidentally put the first tape in backwards thus erasing before we caught our error -not a lot of music lost, but, arghhh!  The rustle you hear about halfway through the first track is me putting the mics up each sleeve of my denim jacket to avoid being detected by said bodyguard.  I mean really, who is going to notice a crazy guy holding up both arms in the air for two hours of a Zappa concert?

I lost track of Adam years ago, he has the original tape and I have a dupe we did to CRO2 tape that night after the concert. Some of the material Frank played that night had not yet been released (Heavenly Bank Account, etc.).  I called the concert 'Artichokes and Steaks' because at some point you'll hear a friend of mine wishing he had some artichokes and steaks - and I thought to myself, that sounds like a title Frank would use.  Out of respect for Frank's livelihood and any possible litigation, we kept the recordings to ourselves and/or, at least I have through the years.  I only played those tapes maybe three times through the years until I digitized the recordings.

There are 3 cassette tapes in total, which is why there are some noticeable gaps evident as we switched to a new cassette to continue recording the concert.  I used a Yamaha MT44 multitrack cassette recorder to play back the tapes through an Echo Layla card (16-bit 44.1 kHz digital multitrack interface for PC - circa 1998-1999) into my PC.  The software I used was Syntrillium's Cool Edit Pro (now called Adobe Audition, since Adobe purchased Syntrillium).  I used Samplitude Mastering software to create the CD disks.  When Mr. Arouh told me he liked Zappa, I decided enough time had passed and so I made him a copy.

Frank Zappa 1975 'Orchestral Favorites' sessions - 1CD


Here's a little surprise: a set of outtakes from the Orchestral Favorites sessions, much of it previously uncirculated. Black Napkins and Rollo have been in circulation for many years but I believe the versions herein to be upgrades.

Here's a quick rundown on the featured tracks and how they differ to the released versions:

01 Strictly Genteel (totally different take, with differences in orchestration)
02 Duke Of Prunes (no guitar solo; just backing tracks)
03 Black Napkins (from Sep. 18 concert, unreleased)
04 Rollo (longer edit than on QuAUDIOPHILIAc; 42 secs more at the beginning)
05 Pedro's Dowry (possibly differences in mix compared to OF version)
06 Naval Aviation In Art? (no difference to OF version)

More analysis of these outtakes and how they compare to Orchestral Favorites is very welcome!

Frank Zappa live in New York 1981 - 2CD - October 31

Frank Zappa
The Palladium
New York City NY USA
1981 10 31 Late show

~~ from fzmoi69 Master Audience tape ~~


Parts of the original Audience Master recording are heavily affected by drop out flaws (in one channel or both) due to recording microphone or cable connection troubles,
especially over most of the first tape (both sides).
As a result most parts in which one channel was flawed have been turned to mono (copying intact channel to other),
other parts in which both channels are dropping out
(i.e. large sections in Black Napkins, Society Pages Medley, Sinister Footwear, shorter spots in other tracks, see setlist) had to be filled with material from alternate source material (Yojimbo SBD).



1981 10 31 - Palladium, New York, NY
