    Tah Dah: Friday Mix: Tweezer Glint (Studio-ized Concert Versions) Part II – and I love it. Long version of “Thirteen” is a beauty. “Wild Love” from Hemmerleinhalle, Neunkirchen am Brand, Germany is great to listen to, it just lacks from the segue into “Yo´Mama” (where the guitar solo portion of “Yo´Mama was recorded – it might come in Part III). Urbangraffito this really makes my weekend. But: Unfortunately when you post another part of Friday Mix: Tweezer Glint the former part is gone. What a pity, I just could listen to Part I once. So I´d better listen to Part II twice. 😉

    Roland, I uploaded ‘Yo Mama’ so you can now hear the segue between that song and ‘Wild Love’ recorded at Hemmerleinhalle, Neunkirchen am Brand, Germany. Unfortunately, the song is incomplete, but the segue is there…

    Can someone explain the idea behind this mixtape? I read the discription of part one and I still don’t get it.

    Even though I’m the reason behind picking the songs, its a very nice mix. Liked Take You’re Clothes Off When You Dance a lot.

    A quote from metafunj:

    The whole idea behind “Tweezer Glint” is to hear those live concert tracks before they were “Studio-ized” by Zappa into the various albums in his catalogue – from “Punky’s Whips” and “The Black Page” and “The Purple Lagoon” from the December 28th, 1976, Palladium show that eventually became part of ‘Zappa In New York’ on Part One; to “Wild Love” and “Yo Mama” which became part of ‘Sheik Yerbouti’ on Part Two. Some tracks are easier than others to place, but all eventually were “Studio-ized” or “edited” or “tweaked” in some fashion on their way to being part of FZ’s catalogue.

    google “xenochrony” maybe? i’m totally digging both mixes so far, really nice choices i wouldn’t have thought of. i think the Punky’s Whips on here is off the hook. LUV KUR.

    To listen to Part I and II of urbangraffito´s compilations so far shows how much effort Zappa put into his work buy overdubbing and xenochronizing the music he recorded during the concerts. It´s just amazing to hear the differences between the basic recordings and the released versions. Zappa must have had an incredible “good ear” to fetch parts from here and other parts from there. Wow!

    And it shows how much effort urbangraffito put into the compilations so far, too. (It is just a pity, that the mixtapes just last for one week.)
    I just wanted to stree it again, because it´s one of the best projects I have listened (honestly written!) for a long time. Thank you!
