The instrumental recorded at Deutchland Halle, Berlin
From: Netter called Andy
  I was wondering if this solo was taken during a live version of Torture Never Stops. You can hear a woman in the background moaning, and I was wondering if anyone had any clue about this.
From: Bill Lantz <>
  Yes it was. 2/15/78 Deutschlandhalle, Berlin. 2-track soundboards exist of this show. I think it's even been booted recently.
  It is. There are boots around of the 2/15/78 Berlin concert which this solo comes from (along with "The Sheik Yerbouti Tango").
From: John Henley <>
  Absolutely. Confirmed in Negative Dialectics. Also, compare it to the live cut on Stage 1. Terry Bozzio banging away at the cymbals for all he's worth. Watson mentions that Frank tried to "rein in" this tendency, and it's probably what he meant when he told Guitar Player in 1976 about TB: "He has a tendency to frenzy out a little."
From: (Charles Ulrich)
  I've always found this ironic, considering that FZ himself was fired from the Ramblers "because they said I played the cymbals too much." ( TRFZB, p. 30)
