This is a wonderful domestic original Discreet double LP pressing mastered at Artisan. It's a truly impressive copy that surpassed a handful of others in a recent shootout. The sound was cleaner and clearer with more separation between the parts. It's an excellent sounding live album and especially so on the better copies like this one. The vinyl plays great with minimal surface noise.
4 stars on Allmusic: "Compared to the man's previous live recordings this one sounds fantastic, finally providing an accurate image of the musicians' virtuosity. For fans of Zappa's intricate material like "RDNZL," "The Black Page," or "Inca Roads," this album is a must-have."
