Frank Zappa-Trick Or Treat

Frank Zappa-Trick Or Treat


1. Uncle Meat (One Note at a Time) / Son of Prelude to the Afternoon of a Sexually Aroused Gas Mask / Oh, in the Sky (08:19)
2. The Big Medley: Let's Make the Water Turn Black / Harry, You're a Beast / Oh No / The Orange County Lumber Truck / King Kong (17:03) [largely officially released on Ahead of Their Time]
3. Bacon Fat (04:20) [Andre Williams / Brown]
4. The String Quartet (First Part) (13:36)
5. The Wild Man Fischer Story [Fischer]
6. I'm the Meany [Fischer]
7. The String Quartet (09:47) [listed as "Let's Make the Water Turn Black"]
8. [?] [listed as "Uncle Bernie's Farm"]

Tracks 1-2 are live in London 1968. "Oh, in the Sky" is Roy Estrada singing a Ruben-esque tune. Track 2 has been officially released as tracks 16-20 of Ahead of Their Time, though there are some edits on the official album.

Tracks 3-6 are as on Our Man in Nirvana (Fullerton, 11-Aug-1968).

Tracks 7-8 are identified as live in Bremen 1968. They are listed as "Let's Make the Water Turn Black" and "Uncle Bernie's Farm" but do not actually represent these songs. Track 7 is the "String Quartet" (the instrumental medley of "Pound for a Brown" and "Sleeping in a Jar" with jamming), and track 8 is an "extremely slow instrumental". If they are indeed from Bremen, they are from the show that was televised in Germany as Lieder Liches.

Total Time: 32:40

Audience Tape. Reel > CDR (from master) > FLAC

Sound Quality: (B) I believe that this is a 2nd gen tape.

This is an interesting, if not pretty raw, audience tape, recorded during the first
day of the two-day San Francisco International Pop Festival. It does not make
for the best listening, because many of the tracks are mere fragments of songs
and the taper speaks throughout.

Nevertheless, I am thankful to whoever taped these performances, because it
is a small, but important document of a fascinating time and place. To be sure,
despite its flaws, it is a good sounding recording for its time. Further, it is
interesting because few studio recordings of Rejoice and The Everpresent Fullness
exist, let alone live tapes. Mad River is likewise underrepresented in tape trade
circles. And, finally, the Lee Michaels track, a mere one minute or so, is to my
knowledge the oldest live recording that exists of his work. The best preserved
tracks are from Iron Butterfly and Jose Feliciano, so this tape would certainly be
of interest to their fans. Please let me know the names of the songs.

While researching this upload, I found a Billboard Magazine article from
26 Oct 1968, in which the writer claims that this entire two-day festival was
being officially recorded by "McCune Sound Co. of San Francisco" and that the
festival's organizers planned a release of the music. To my knowledge an album
never came of this (though there was an album released called S.F. Int. Pop Festival,
I don't believe it had anything to do with this festival). Does anyone know
if soundboards exist?
