    I could be wrong, but this 1984 show - taped from the mixing desk - has not been in wide circulation. At least I've never come across it in 15 years of trading. It's Viareggio, Italy 12 Oct 1984. A lot of Zappaholics don't go for the material and sound from 1984 tour, but I actually think it's ok - different from the '79, '80, '81, '82 purple patch, sure - but pretty fine nevertheless.

    Zappa encouraged people to trade recordings of his shows as long as no money passed hands and no official releases were involved.
