Frank Zappa-Paris (December 15, 1970) (FLAC)

Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention
Palais Gaumont
Paris, France
1970 12 15

~~ From 3rd gen soundboard recording ~~

An upgrade to our current version, and possibly the lowest generation available. Here's what my source, LC, told me about it:
"The board of the MOI at Gaumont Palace, Paris, 12/15/70 originated from the KSAN FM tape archive. A friend had access to their tape library and ran a copy. I’m relatively certain that is how that board surfaced."

The tape suffers from some drop-outs, especially the first minutes. I experimented with removing them, but decided to leave them as they were.

FZShows entry:
