Again, I love them all but Let's Make The Water Turn Black is one of the most beautiful melodies ever.

I spoke too soon. Hot Poop made its way onto Side Two for the purposes of this poll! What a relief...

I'll go with.... Mother People.

Are there different versions? I remember the first time I heard the record, my father borrowed it from a coworker, and I'm positive that Hot Poop was the last track on side A. I looked it up the big informational site we always refer to, but couldn't find anything right off. Not wanting to split hairs or anything, I'm just curious if there were different versions.

I'm sittin' here with a hunk of plastic in my hand, with a black "Verve" label (V6 5045), and "Hot Poop" is track 10, Side 1.
By the way, my copy is marked on the cover as "Produced in 1973 - Made In Canada" (I bet that came as a surprise! :roll: ). However, it would have been made from standing masters, so it should still be the same as a genuine Calif pressing.
May we have the next contestant, please?

And I finally cast a vote for....."Let's Make The Water Turn Black". The lyrics flow so nicely. (and descriptively!)

My mistake. I finally pulled out my vinyl, and the 16-second track concludes Side 1, indeed. Too bad a poll, once established, cannot be modified.

Let's Make The Water Turn Black

The Chrome Plated Megaphone of Destiny, that one sorta defined what the album was to me, uniqueness in sound carvings :)

Hot Poop from the vinyl:

http://znakomi.com/zappaforum/hotpooponvinyl.mp3

Here it is turned around with Cool Edit software, the word "fuckin'" was deleted before the clip was turned around for the original LP:

(It was a different time then, "Wouldn't It Be Nice" was banned from the radio in Connecticut because of the horridly offensive line: "We could say good-night and stay together.")
