Re: Roxy & Elsewhere, I wouldn't go that far. There *are* some overdubs (on
"Be-Bop Tango", "Echidna's Arf" and "Don't You Ever Wash That Thing", and
there's even a section of Cheepnis that more than likely comes from a studio
session), but it's nothing like the overdubbage you'll find on, say, "Sheik
Yerbouti". The "Them Or Us" album is an even better example -- many of the
tracks on that album come from live or soundcheck performances, but without
knowing that, you'd be hard pressed to point to anything on that album as a
live recording except maybe the end of "Whipping Post" where you can actually
hear an audience.

I know what you as far as a complete studio version but it seems much
of FZs live stuff were live/studio hybrids with overdubs, which gives
it all such an interesting aural quality - just like the stuff on Roxy
& Elsewhere that was full of the famous FZ live/studio hybrid.
