Notes by the uploader/trader:
In 1998 I was fortunate to obtained the use of these tapes.They are 1st generation, direct professional  VHS dubs from the masters. I then had the 1st gen tapes professionally duplicated. These were then distributed to 6 other established FZ collectors. Any footage you have seen of these films prior to this DVD are at best, 2nd generation.

In the spring of 2006, I again secured the use of the 1st gen tapes, and this is the result. A direct transfer from the 1st gen tapes. Unedited.

These were professionally shot in one day. The date was Sunday, February 14, 1988. NOT February 12, 1988 as it is sometimes listed as. It is unknown where the original tapes are, could be they were recorded over, could be they are in the camera mans closet. I am told that they were NOT given to Frank. Nor were they ever lent to anyone else. The first 33 minutes of disc-1 are from the camera mic. The last 22 minutes are a feed from the soundboard.

Disc-2 is the 2nd camera and uses on camera mic,this will contain duplicate material from disc-1, but is shot from the front of the stage. I have not edited these in any way. There will be times when the camera man stops recording and then resumes.
