Frank Zappa-Paleis voor Schone Kunsten-Brussels, Belgium (December 16, 1970) (FLAC

Frank Zappa
Paleis voor Schone Kunsten
Brussels, Belgium
1970 12 16

~~ From 1st gen FM (possibly pre-FM) tape ~~

This short segment of the show was recorded by Belgian radio (BRTN), but as I understand it, nothing was broadcast until Dec. 21 1999. My source for this tape was a friend of the producer of the show, and it's possible that this is a pre-FM recording.

I should have said, the picture on your blog for the FZ-Paleis voor Schone Kunsten-Brussels, Belgium (Dec 16, 1970), was actually taken at the Bath Festival of Blues & Progressive Music, on the 28th of June.
