Description

Frank Zappa Black Napkins Oct 13, 1978 Late Show Capitol Theatre, Passaic, NJ On October 13, 1978 Zappa and one of my favorite bands of his played an early and late show at The Capitol Theatre in Passaic, New Jersy. Joining Frank on stage were one of the best drummers to ever pick up sticks, Vinnie Colaiuta, wacked-out keyboardist Tommy Mars, lead singer Ike Willis as well as Denny Walley (slide guitar), Patrick O'Hearn (bass), Arthur Barrow (bass), Peter Wolf (keys) and Ed Mann (percussion). The legendary performance of Black Napkins (easily the finest Black Napkins I've ever had the pleasure of hearing), where Frank just cannot. stop. soloing. This is one of the high points of the 1978-79 band, in my not-so-humble opinion. Napkins seem to go on forever, although not long enough! Frank was having some kind of existential mind-body connection with his guitar at this point.
