5.0 out of 5 stars Triumph through adversity, 25 Oct. 2006
This review is from: Bongo Fury (Audio CD)
This is as good a record as we'll ever get of the '74 Zappa/Beefheart tour. It's consistently excellent and is a testament to Frank's tolerance of the insulting disrespect he received from Beefheart on a tough tour. As Zappa himself said, the reason he took Beefheart out on tour was that the Captain had tied himself into contractual knots meaning he couldn't tour or record alone.

Frank was helping out an old friend.

The result is a great album that fuses driving dirty blues, massive fuming guitar solos and moments of inspired madness. In fact the Beefheart tracks are really very good and as whole the album shows no sign of the unpleasantnesses going on. It hangs together beautifully.

But look at the cover. The look on Frank's face as he gazes up at the camera says it all.

This project was a hard thing to do.
