Sell us a president, agency man
Smiling Big Brother, stern father perhaps
Sell us a president, agency man
A gay smiling nothing we know never craps

We'll sell him in the movies
On the tube throughout the year
We'll sell him by the buckets
To the Okies drinking beer
We'll teach him how to walk and talk
We'll putty up his chin
We'll print his picture everywhere
Of course the SCHMUCK will win

"We're doing a play...."

Those first few minutes of dialogue crack me up every time.

Holiday In Berlin is, technically, the best song there, but it's better on Burnt Weenie Sandwich. Plus, the line "how can you get laid if you don't play rock and roll and drink beer?" is truly amazing. So I voted for that.

"Epilogue" is an amazing piece of music that I never paid enough attention to, and the way it explodes into "King Kong" is just :shock:

if you ask me, this part is pointless... ok, one or two songs, but half of the record of talking? this kind of stuff is for DVD, if you release music you should play music god damn... I allways start this record with (or) Agency Man or King Kong :|

not a big fan of all this talking, I dont dig it :?

I dig the play but not on a daily basis. Usually I throw this one on from Epilogue on, that is my favorite song from the first section.

Tricky.
I went for The Rejected Mexican Pope Leaves the Stages. It was either that, Undaunted, the band plays on or Epilogue.
The orchestral pieces from this concert and Prologue highlight excatly what I love about Zappa's early mean orchestral scary music.
I would love to have been at that concert. There must be some people out there that went to it and have thought about posting a thread here
