Album Review

This is a bootleg album, released by Frank Zappa without enhancement, and also available as part of the Beat The Boots! #2 boxed set. It contains a live performance by The Mothers from June 1971, the same period that produced the legitimate album Fillmore East—June 1971, and like that record, it contains comedy routines by lead singers Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman, plus some instrumentals originally recorded by the previous edition of The Mothers in the late '60s. Hence, it will be of primary interest to collectors, but not to average Zappa fans. Collectors should note that this is one place to hear "Holiday In Berlin" with lyrics, which detail The Mothers' experience with a left-wing riot in Germany in 1968.

Customer Reviews

Cool Bootlegs!

I'm not sure if this was approved by UMRK and ZFT, but I've never heard a live version of Sharleena in the style of the album version as close as this one.

I wonder...

I wonder if the Zappa Family Trust will pay out royalties to the musicians and people whose songs Frank covered in this bootleg series. Regardless, there is some good material here.

all original

just an FYI-all the tracks on this Beat the Boots selection were written by Frank. Not sure what royalties another reviewer was speaking of. Decent sound on this one. Collect ‘em, trade ‘em.
