Zappa's 1975 tour was unique, with its new virtuoso drummer, a dedicated slide guitarist and the presence on stage of Don Van Vliet. Recorded just two days after the live tracks on Bongo Fury this El Paso gig has it all: Captain Beefheart on vocals (one track), harmonica, soprano sax and 'assorted craziness'; A guest appearance on vocals by original Mother Jimmy Carl Black 'the Indian of the group' (two tracks); new drummer Terry Bozzio finding his feet and repaying FZ's faith in him with interest; the unique slide stylings of Zappa's childhood friend Denny Walley; Napoleon Murphy Brock having the night of his life as a vocalist;  George Duke on jazz/ funk fire and the extraordinary Fowler brothers Tom and Walt. Add a succession of great guitar solos by the great man himself and a general sense of experimentation and what you get is a very special event. Performed at the County Coliseum, El Paso, Texas, 23rd May 1975 and broadcast by KLAQ-FM.
