Notes

"This album is engineered to sound correct on JBL 4311 speakers or an equivalent. Best results will be achieved if you set your pre-amp controls to the flat position with the loudness control in the off position. Before adding any treble or bass to the sound of the album, it would be advisable to check it this way first. - F.Z.".

The album's first half consists of studio recordings, while the second half consists of live recordings. Ship Arriving Too Late To Save A Drowning Witch - Frank Zappa. Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей коллекцией. 1982, 1995 The Zappa Family Trust. Zappa opened no appearance at the Abrams Convention nor did 3,000 screaming teenagers give him a standing ovation. In the tradition of Aerosmith and Van Halen, which this album is not, excitement does not exist, nor will it mysteriously appear, since who cares if there's another Zappa album anyway. Drowning Witch may be one of his hardest pieces to perform. This album clearly lacks ambition and tends to get lost among the man's humongous discography, but it should not be overlooked. It contains a few good songs No Not Now is quite entertaining, strong guitar work from Zappa and Steve Vai, and it is not defaced by the cold 1980s sound of subsequent albums.
