Zoot Allures (6:12)
Cosmik Debris (8:12)

More info at zappa.com.

Zoot Allures 1982
Frank Zappa: lead guitar
Ray White: guitar
Steve Vai: guitar
Scott Thunes: bass
Chad Wackerman: drums (overdubbed at UMRK)
Bobby Martin: keys
Tommy Mars: keys
Ed Mann: percussion

Zappateer pbuzby noted that “Zappa’s solo in Zoot Allures is from 1982 06 18 London”. Great sound! The solo grows upon a relaxed rhythmic support. The fade out is the cruelest part of the song, as it is in the original!

Post Scriptum (May 13, 2014): a further note from Zappateer boguspomp
Good ears Flam,
ZA goes as follows:
0 – 59.03 19th early,
59.03 – 1.04.05 Frankfurt late,
1.04.05 – 2.04.62 19th early,
2.04.62 – 2.52.45 Frankfurt late again,
Rest 18th.
All times are approximate!

Cosmik Debris 1973
Finlandia Hall, Helsinki
Frank Zappa: lead vocal, guitar
George Duke: keys
Ruth Underwood: percussion
Bruce Fowler: trombone
Jen Luc Ponty: violin
Ian Underwood: woodwinds, synth
Tom Fowler: bass

From the same concerts released as Road Tapes, Venue #2, “a song about a guru who maybe visiting you!”. Unfortunately the vocal track is a little bit distorted and winds seem too low in the mix, but the rest is great and relaxed too.

Two excerpts from the guitar solos to the two songs are available through the Barfko-Swill shop. Here are the direct links:

Lastly, a memorabilia from the 90s, it is a Mother’s Day card by Cal Schenkel. Unfortunately only low quality images are available on the net.
