Frank Zappa: live at the Palace of Sports of Barcelona in 1988

“A mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work if it is not open.” (F. Zappa)

On May 17, 1988, Frank Zappa and his band performed an awesome concert at the Palace of Sports of Barcelona: an extremley interesting concert, Zappa’s last tour, great songs never seen before, such as “Planet Of The Baritone Women” and also the classic “Sharleena”.
