      Just added to my ever growing playlist. Thanks, Alex and Joe.

      Awesome - I hadn't realized that the Illinois Enema Bandit was real!

      My partner (who introduced me to the world of FZ), this project and the project supporters' conversations creates a richer exploration of FZ's music. Together they catalyze a fascinating and thought provoking cognizance that goes far beyond the conventional music listening experience.

      @John W. Busher: thanks for the quick work John! We knew you guys would find it :)
      Yes we know about the speed, FZ did that intentionally.

      Alex - For the record, the solo has been identified as July 1, 1980 - Mulhouse, France and it has also been noted that it runs too fast. Joe needs to dial back the speed control on the tape deck a little. Cool solo. Thanks for posting."

      As a FZ novice I am intrigued and spurred by exchanges like this. My guy is a fan with a wealth of knowledge from his listening to so many albums and their subsequent versions. Russ might not have picked up what John Busher did on this solo, but he has been able to describe differences in various performances of the same song from multiple releases.

      Thanks for all the sharing of information from the supporters and the effort of the project team and Alex.

      1980 Yes indeed, while the date remains in question Zappa Zorch Stroking Fast n' Bulbous US Tour comes to mind.

      Busher.......the speed is probably Frank's doing. Sometimes turning it up a bit makes it “hotter”. It’s been done before.

      thank you very much but is it possible to have really new materials (entire show never listened for example because it thought there was everything in the vault)

      Fast work, Zappateers! (Pat)

      @B. Salamandir - That's what he gets for using google-translator or he could have meant to say... pulling out of alignment
