Frank Zappa-Rockpile,Toronto (Late Show) (2-23-69) (FLAC)

Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention
Toronto, Canada
1969 02 23 late show

~~ From 4th gen stage recording ~~

The next in our series of Toronto '69 upgrades, one of the famous Don Preston stage recordings. An entertaining show with much audience interaction and MOI antics. FZ's voice is barely audible, but because of the relative cleanness of this version, it's possible to boost the volume in the quiet parts.
My 4th gen was lacking the tuning-up section, which I've added from an unknown gen tape.

Thanks for the FLAC files.
It's always great to have shows from the 60's of the Mothers.

Musical history by a legendary band and the one and only Frank Zappa. Their master and in my opinion the all time greatest musical personality of the part century.
