Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention
Zappa Records and UMe repackage this 2011 website-exclusive 4-CD set in more compact 3-CD fashion for general release. Carnegie Hall chronicles Zappa and the Mothers of Invention’s October 11, 1971 shows at the famed New York venue from the original mono tapes. This version drops the opening set by The Persuasions but includes all of Zappa and the Mothers’ material from both shows. The Mothers’ lineup includes three alumni of The Turtles – bassist Jim Pons and vocalists Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman, a.k.a. Flo and Eddie – plus Ian Underwood, Don Preston, and Aynsley Dunbar.
