Frank Zappa - Live Detroit 1976 - 2CD - released 11/12/20
You never could be sure just what sort of a band Frank Zappa would show up with. Figure on a quartet, an orchestra would arrive. Bet on a jazz septet, and a rock 'n' roll combo appears. In fact, the only things you could count on were that the band would be super-tight, that they would be incredible live performers, and that the show would be unlike any you had ever seen. Zappa's appearance in Detroit in November 1976 was only a few weeks into a gruelling tour, which would eventually stretch across the US, Europe and Australia.
Officially touring the Zoot Allures album, there's a vast body of work here, reaching from 1973's Over-Nite Sensation to material that never even made the studio. Timeline proudly presents the entire, original WRIF-FM broadcast of Frank Zappa, live from the Cobo Arena, Detroit, MI on 19th November 1976. Professionally re-mastered from the original FM broadcast with background liners and rare archival photos.
