    Thanks Gilles and Barry, as usual.
    I guess I’ve heard it before (?), but it is interesting to hear the Gregory Peckery theme this early (on ‘Some Ballet Music’). When Zappa said he views time as a ‘spherical constant’ he wasn’t whistlin’ Dixie…

    Just a small update: Gilles has informed me that the last two tracks do not belong to the Rockpile gig, and that he has no idea how they got added to the boot or which other boot they belong to — I have updated the page accordingly…

    Hi!
    according to the folks over at zappateers these two tracks are from the 23may69 Appleton, WI show, here:

    I saw MOI several times in and around Chicago/Wisconsin in 1969. If only I had a calendar marked with the dates of those shows!
    Anyway, looking at the gig list from that time has these guys scattered all over the place during that year. I believe they were traveling by bus. If, indeed, the Toronto/Appleton gigs were only a day apart, that is is a hell of a road trip between gigs.
    What a drag! Touring can make you crazy!

    interesting, i was wondering about the extra 2 tracks after i took a gander at the gig list. funny coincidence – i just scored a cdr of the appleton gig this week! i’ll have to check for the respective merits of my mix vs. gilles’ mp3s. btw, frenchman – thanks for the boots! i need to get on the tape trader list…

    Am I correct to say that May 24, 1969 was the last performence of Lowell George with The MOI???

    i compared the 2 extra appleton tracks from this week’s mp3s with my appleton boot, which i just copied from a friend. the mp3s sound better, which leads me to request, nay, DEMAND the rest of the appleton show. c’mon, you can’t just tease us with the last 2 tracks! btw, i noticed that the last 10 or 15 seconds fade out on gilles’ version…the ‘goodnight boys and girls’ part. just figured i’d mention that the very end was missing.
