Frank Zappa: San Ber’dino and Black Napkins Live (1977)

Frank Zappa’s 1977 Baby Snakes tour included this Halloween concert at New York City’s Palladium Theater.

In typical fashion, the band is made up of a bunch of all-stars. Anchoring the band (when he’s not doubling the guitar riffs) is bassist Patrick O’Hearn. The line-up also includes Terry Bozzio, Adrian Belew, Tommy Mars, Peter Wolf and Ed Mann.

And if music history (and/or Zappa geekery) is your thing, you’ll definitely want to check out this excellent post by Sean Gaffney. After you watch the video, of course.
