Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention - Transmission Impossible (3CD)


Emerging from the L.A. R 'n' B scene during 1964, Frank Zappa's first wave Mothers Of Invention signed to Verve Records in 1966, the same year their debut album, Freak Out, was released. Followed by a string of eclectic, experimental, critically acclaimed records, Zappa disbanded the group in 1969. During this first incarnation, MOI toured frequently both at home and overseas, with many of their most interesting performances recorded for FM radio broadcast. This set brings together a number of these recordings with Disc One featuring Mothers shows at Stockholm in 1967 and New York in 1968. Disc Two includes their show given in Toronto in February 1969, just prior to the initial line-up's demise. Disc Three of this collection finds the Mother Of Invention Mark II performing at The Fillmore West in San Francisco in November 1970.
