Missing Links: RDNZL, Cosmik Debris – Stockholm

Have you seen the Stockholm show, 1973? You did? Maybe the 50 minute version. But here are some missing gems, previously unseen (at least by me): RDNZL and Cosmik Debris.
Great tunes! Watch the fun the band has during and after RDNZL! Sooooo good!!!

Update: bongolamp has just uploaded Kung Fu and Penguin In Bondage! (I’ve also updated it on my page)
Thank you, man!

  1. Hi bongolamp! Nice to see you here – and a huuuuge thanks for the videos!
    About ’73 Stockholm: where did you managed to get it? A really valuable thing! I wonder if there’s a way to see the whole show, maybe, in one way or another (with Penguin in Bondage and Kung Fu)…
    Thanks again!

  2. Hi bongolamp! Nice to see you here – and a huuuge thanks for all the videos you’ve shared!
    By the way: this recording of RDNZL is a gem, a real rarity – is there a way to see the whole show, is it possible in any way? (Incl. Penguin In Bondage and Eric Dolphy MBbq) That would be great!

  3. The tonality of this band was mindblowing, and the guitar solo in RDNZL is truly magificent. I’ve had this for a while on the Stockholm In Bondage DVD and I always go back to it every few months. It’s a pity they didn’t play ‘Brown Shoes’ during this show i’d love to see footage of ’73 version

  4. Hey, bongolamp, your collection is just fantastic, I can’t get bored of this! One question: I think only one part is missing from your ’73 Stockholm post, and that is Dupree’s intro, by George Duke, this one (in a strange, compressed fromat).
    With that this would be a whole show!
    By the way: are all the songs form the same show?… FZ wears another coat on some songs.

  5. Balint – I had the same question, and I think all of the songs are from the same show. In the new tracks it looks to me like Zappa has taken off the plaid coat and is wearing a maroon turtle neck sweater. You can see that he is wearing the same sweater under the jacket in the old, incomplete version of the show. Maybe he started feeling hot after the guitar solos in “Dupree’s Paradise” and “Farther Oblivion”
    This video is fantastic! Is there anyway of making a torrent of the complete show?

  6. Correction – that’s not a turtleneck. In the earrlier part of the show, he has the collar zipped all the way up, so it looks like one.
