A little background : the Actuel festival was organized by the publication of the same > name (who, under different editorship, went on to become a prime mover of the French > counterculture in the early to mid-70s) in collaboration with the fledgling BYG label. It was > originally going to take place in or near Paris, but French authorities forbid it and the > marquee was eventually set up a few miles outside the French border, on Belgian soil.

First, as Captain Beefheart's road manager; secondly, as M.C., assisting Pierre > Lattes, a famous radio/TV presenter at the time (and the pop music editor for Actuel magazine). > The latter task proved problematic given FZ's very limited mastery of French, the prevailing > language among the audience, who themselves didn't seem to understand much English. Instead, FZ > relinquished his M.C. job for one of occasional guest guitarist. > > > > As far as I know, with the exception of FZ's performance with Captain Beefheart, this collects > all of his jams with participating bands.
