This collection brilliantly commemorates the critically-acclaimed 2006 concerts which presented a collection of Zappa's rock-oriented compositions from the 1960s through the 1980s: this 2 DVD/3 CD set is a tour de force of rock guitar virtuosity. Filmed in Portland and Seattle, this set is a guitarist's dream come true. Featuring Dweezil Zappa with Terry Bozzio and Steve Vai, a dash of Frank Zappa's social commentary and wit, this set is a document like no other available! Also featured are a mix of musicians who previously played with Frank Zappa including Mothers of Invention member Napoleon Murphy Brock. In addition, Zappa himself performs posthumously via synchronized A/V technology.

Frank Zappa was a true musical genius--of course, one often hears that term bandied about regarding any moe who can sing and string two dozen words together, but Zappa was the real deal. He was a killer guitarist who composed and played rock & roll, jazz, R&B, and classical music, wrote absurdly, viciously funny satirical songs, and did "rock theatre" when Alice Cooper was still in middle school. Zappa fans will love this DVD-Audio Disc, which contains not only a 1978 live performance at New York City's Palladium, but many other extras including a video clip of another 1978 performance, a radio interview, and a complete Zappa discography.

To simplify my life considerably, I'm going to combine the "reviews" of all six Stage releases into a single entry, even though they were released individually. Also, to save a lot of time and effort, I'm not going to give complete track listings of the twelve discs, or do song-by-song reviews (hey, we're talking over 800 minutes of music here, give me a break). If you need to know the track listings, they're probably available through an on-line music sales site like CDNow, or an information site like the All Music Guide. There's probably a few other Zappa sites that list them as well. Maybe one day when I have the time, I'll come back and expand this section to really cover all twelve discs in detail. Until then, I'll just give some general facts and opinions, focusing on highlights and material unique to the Stage series.

Vaultmeisterment & Analog Transfers by Joe Travers, March 2012, UMRK. Mastered from the original analog master by Doug Sax, 2012. Two thirds through the first CD of Joe's Garage. This title has always sounded good, but this one really has some snap to it. Sweet. More to come. I never cared for the CD versions at all; the deep, rich ‘Philly Soul’ mix that I loved on my vinyl copy was obliterated on the CD. Yes, it was brighter and crisper, but it left me cold and underwhelmed and continued to enjoy my vinyl JG. In my opinion, the 2012 master restores the sound quality to the original release. Vinnie’s drums now sound the way I remember, and the cymbals and other high end information are placed in proper perspective. Comparing the new release to my vinyl and a 24/96 vinyl rip, it sounds to me like they really captured the sound of the original. This is an essential upgrade for me.

For many, Frank Zappa is an acquired taste. Few would dispute his genius or the stunning complexity of his compositions and arrangements, but not everyone is up to the demands Zappa places on an audience. If you count yourself among those who scratch their heads listening to a Zappa album, you might find a new appreciation for his work by seeing it performed. Zappa’s acerbic humor and his band’s white-knuckle musicianship are both well served by the visual medium of a concert DVD.
