Philly 76 is a live album by Frank Zappa and it’s notable for including the soulful singing of Lady Bianca.
It was rare for Zappa to work with a female singer and her presence helps to make this album very special and with a clear place in a collection of Zappa’s live recordings.
It was recorded at the Spectrum in Philadelphia on October 29, 1976.
