Don’t eat the yellow snow, bitches, because it’s Bootleg City, Zappa style!

Frank Zappa, to be specific — not any of his stupid kids — and rather than coming to us courtesy of our good friends at 125 Records, this stack of tunes was kindly donated by Steve C at Maybe We Ain’t That Young Anymore. If you haven’t checked out his site, you oughta — he’s been fighting the good fight for months now, and giving his readers some good stuff in the process. Steve passed this along awhile ago, but the 125 stuff has been coming fast and furious (with no end in sight), so it took watching VH1 Classic’s airing of the Classic Albums documentary on Apostrophe and Over-Nite Sensation to finally get me off my ass.

But I digress. Here’s Frank, in all his glory, at the Boston Music Hall, October 24, 1976. Enjoy!
