The zany experiments of Frank Zappa and his several mothers are documented here in Roxy & Elsewhere, a grab-bag live album that places him firmly in the Roxy Theatre, but also in a few other randomly selected venues, because the moustached avant-jazz stalwart can't stay in the same place for too long.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 10th February 2015

Most of the disc was recorded using 16-track equipment, a rarity for 1973. It sounds like you're in a small-club, in the third-row, centre. Not only is the listener hit with a jazz/funk/blues small-big band-big bang (11 members: 3 guitars, 2 keyboards, 3 percussion, 3 brass) fronted by the free world's most underrated guitarist (see solo on "More Trouble Every Day") but Mr. Zappa's spoken and compositional humour is at a peak. (see "Cheepnis") Mostly songs with words, this disc features two inconceivable-for-stage instrumentals which are effectively nailed.
