Inca Roads Live 1974 - Frank Zappa - The Dubroom Special (DVD)


  1. Although "Inca Roads" is not in that class, it does contain some fine jazz fusion, and as with many of Mr. Zappa's compositions, some of the lyrics are indeed nonsensical. The references herein to Ruth allude to Ruth Underwood, who played percussion for Zappa from to , and who of course appears on this release.
  2. Many other "Inca Roads" solos have been chronicled on the Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar and Guitar collections. The song was played live extensively during the tour, only occasionally during the last half of the s, and finally came back gloriously for the tour.
  3. Like many Zappa fans, I was skeptical about anybody 'covering' Frank's work, even his own son. Well, lemme tell you, Dweezil and his crew will put all your fears to rest.

Live performances by two very different groups led by the late Frank Zappa are the main attraction of Dub Room Special, a relatively rare DVD offering from one of contemporary music's most prolific and hard-to-classify figures. There were always two sides to Zappa (who died in ), from serious composer/musician to potty-mouthed frat boy 4/5(59).
