This is a great live recording of the VU!
A few reviewers have called it uninspired. They think that the band should sound as raw and raucus as they did in 1968. Guess what? We all get a little bit older and a little bit slower.
I think all four of the VU pulled off a great (albeit short) reunion. The video of the same is excellent viewing/listening. I'd love for the video to be released on DVD.
This CD came out shortly before the late, great FZ died and after I listened to all my Zappa discs I played this set over and over to get me through. Kinda weird to rely on the VU to get me over some Zappa blues, but it did!
Enjoy this CD set. Don't buy the single disc version. The long "Hey, Mr. Rain" is worth the price alone.
