NOTES: "You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore, Vol. 6"

This is the final volume of the You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore archives. There are some stimulating sparks on this record. A whipping version of "Alien Orifice" and a very playful piece called "Lisa's Life Story". Lisa Popeil was a musician who had auditioned for Frank's band in 1981.

When we played at the Santa Monica Civic Center in 1981, she came out on stage and did this improv where she told the story of her life through operatic meanderings. Lisa Popeil is of the famed Popeil family, you know... the inventor of Popeil's Pocket Fisherman. Her father is Ron Popeil of Ronco. So, it was delightful to hear her tell the story of her life as we followed Frank's conducting.

There is also a beautiful version of "Strictly Genteel" on this record. I had heard Frank mention that it was one of his favorite songs that he'd written.
