A toss between title track and Blessed Relief...went with the latter.

Side 2 as a single unit. But "Blessed Relief" 'cause it trots along so nicely.

For Calvin (And His Next Two Hitch-Hikers), just barely over Eat That Question. Both of those songs are incredible.

Grand Wazoo. It's great as an opener because when you hear it, it's like FZ was saying:"OK, here it is. We are not fucking around, so wrap your mind around this!". 8)

Grand Wazoo. The part where the horns come in during the intro guitar part gets me every time.

I've been listening to this album for about 31 years and if I tried to answer this poll based on how I feel right now I couldn't, it's one of my favourite FZ albums. But, based on all the time I've listened to it, I'd have to say Blessed Relief is my favourite.

The title track but honestly, I've always seen this album as one complete piece with five different sections.
