Whipping Post kills me, though, because it's a straight-ahead reading
with FZ and the boys doing a killer job on it.  Why no gags?

Previously in Helsinki, some drunken fan was calling out for "Whipping
Post."  (No one's really sure why - few people have ever mistaken FZ
for either of the Allman Bros.)  Frank seemed like he was going to play
it, but instead did "Montana" with a lot of "Whipping Post" references.
That show then became part of the "You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore"
series (I think it was Vol. 2.)

So here comes FZ on the next tour, and as an encore, they do Whipping Post!
Pretty damn funny, but great in its own right.
