Zappa had begun regularly recording concerts, and because of his insistence on precise tuning and timing, he was able to augment his studio productions with excerpts from live shows, and vice versa. Later, he combined recordings of different compositions into new pieces, irrespective of the tempo or meter of the sources. aa ab ac ad ae af ag ah ai aj ak al am an ao ap aq ar as Zappa, Frank; Occhiogrosso, Peter (1989).

Buffalo is a live album by Frank Zappa, posthumously released in April 2007 as a two-CD set, consisting of the complete concert given on October 25, 1980 at the Buffalo Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo, New York with a band that has previously been heard on Tinsel Town Rebellion (1981) and Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar (1981)

One of Zappa’s most beloved collections of songs, the now classic album included a sensational live version of Sofa alongside nine new compositions, including the complex percussion-based piece The Black Page, which has become infamous in the drum community as the ultimate challenge, the Devilish comedic sendup Titties & Beer, and the notorious aforementioned Punky’s Whips about Punky Meadows, the flamboyant. guitarist for the band Angel. Recorded on the first night of the four-night stand, the track features Zappa performing the chorus of the song Any Kind of Pain in the middle of The Purple Lagoon. I am proud that after forty years, mine is finally among them.

Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention –. We’re Only In It For The Money. Uncensored Original Mix by soniclovenoize). In a move that is almost universally considered sacrilege by fans, Zappa utilized the remastering process as an excuse to literally replace the original drum and bass tracks on the album with a newly recorded rhythm section. Not only was this new remaster of We’re Only in It For The Money condemned by purists, but the end result seemed extremely anachronistic with an obviously 1960s guitar, keyboard & vocal sound juxtaposed with an obviously 1980s drum & bass sound; today in the 2010s, the effect is exacerbated with the 1980s overdubs sounding extremely dated. This version of the album is currently out-of-press, aside from being included in an exhaustive box set release from this era of The Mothers.
