You Can't Do That on Stage Anymore, Vol. 2 is a live album by Frank Zappa. Despite the subtitle "The Helsinki Concert", the album is not one complete concert, but was, in fact, assembled from two (and possibly three) different concerts performed in Helsinki in 1974. The working title for this album was The Helsinki Tapes, a title more accurately reflecting the fact that the album was composed of performances from more than one show.

The track listing is similar to that of Roxy & Elsewhere (1974), as are the core band personnel. The performance includes a double-speed version of "Village of the Sun", sandwiched between a later version of "RDNZL", the first being recorded in 1972, and "Echidna's Arf (Of You)", and "Montana (Whipping Floss)" — a spontaneously rewritten version of "Montana", following an audience member's request for The Allman Brothers Band's "Whipping Post". The guitar solo in the One Size Fits All version of "Inca Roads" is an edited extract of the solo presented here.[citation needed]

Zappa has considered these performances as some of the best in his career[citation needed]. This particular line-up was one of his favorites.
