Frank Zappa
July 17th, 1974
Celebrity Theatre
Phoenix, AZ

Anybody interested in solid-sounding soundboards from the 1974 band? I thought so...

Like most of the shows from the first American leg of this tour (and the third American leg of 1974), this is a very loose, relaxed show, with plenty of quotes in Dupree's Paradise.

Despite the hissiness of this tape, it's clearly the best of four tapes sampled - so enjoy this immense Zappateer co-production, won't you?

Available Recordings, according to FZShows:
83 min, SBD, B+

Source: 82:28 (after speed correction and patching), B+ (B for BF patch, B/B- for WIU2B-LudzNL patch)
