Notes
The first part of the concert recorded live in Montreux, Switzerland, December 4th, 1971, the night the Casino burnt down. The second part of this concert is released as ‘Fire!’. Reissued June 16, 1992 as part of Beat The Boots II boxed set.

* The second part, ‘Fire!’, actually captures the moment when “some stupid with a flare gun” burns the place to the ground, breaking “King Kong” to a halt. Zappa at first does not know what is happening and cracks a joke referring to Arthur Brown’s latest single,”Fire,” before realizing it’s the real deal, then calmly makes stage announcement asking everyone to leave in an orderly fashion.
