Wazoo is a live album by Frank Zappa.
It was recorded at the Music Hall in Boston, Massachusetts on September 24, 1972.
Shortly after The Mothers lost their equipment in the fire in Montreux made famous by Deep Purple’s song Smoke On The Water, An idiot pushed Zappa of stage at a concert in London and he was badly injured. This stopped him from touring for about nine months but he was creative in the studio with the albums The Grand Wazoo and Waja/Jawaka.
This album captures the final night of his 12 concert comeback tour when he was playing with a 20 strong big band.
