Thanks a million for all these excellent mixtapes !!!
I have been a visitor to this great website for quite some time now, but so far i have never posted anything.
But, i have been checking out all the newly posted video’s, selections of songs from various FZ live shows and of course the genius that is the mixtapes.
Especially this one, with over 80 (!!!) selections of compositions from one of FZ’s greatest bands and one of his most prolific periods as one looks to the amount of constant touring and writing he managed in those 2 years…
The only drawback is that one cannot download these mixtapes 🙁
Poor old Michael Erso. He never stood a chance.
Urso, rather than Erso (sorry). Getting my information from an incorrect website, there.
Good stuff UrbanG.! “Chester–you’re the trunk of the tree!”
Definitely my favorite two years for live Mothers Of Invention.
(You could have also possibly included some stuff from the KCET TV sessions in ’74 [excluding the released material on the Dub Room Special], and maybe something from the three great San Carlos shows in July, 1974 [perhaps the only known live version of Andy from the six-piece YCDTOSA Vol. 2 line-up, on July 21: “Is There Anything Good Inside Of You, If There Is I Really Want To Know”] or perhaps material from the legendary May 9, 1973 Passaic NJ concert–i don’t remember if you featured that one already: the impromptu instrumental version of Willie The Pimp with J-LP sawing away is great, along with my personal favorite performance of The Yellow Snow suite is from that concert–but what you’ve chosen is more than sufficient!)
p.s. did you include a rendition of Brown Shoes Don’t Make It from the European ’73 tour in an earlier segment? if not, add that sucka into the mix as well!
Okay, the penultimate track here, a version of “Montana”, is labelled as being from Sydney in June ’73, but this is clearly not true; it’s got Nappy on it, for one thing, and FZ mentions that Bird Legs is on bass, so it must be from the tail end of ’74. Does anyone have the real date and venue?

Sorry, folks, my mistake. When editing so many songs, dates, and venues, one is bound to make an error every once and a while. Thanks for catching this one, Theydon!
To answer your question, the real date and venue of that track is “St Paul Auditorium, St Paul, MN, 27 Nov 1974”.
Thanks for that!
