So far, it's Big Swifty for me. Though I was impressed with "Penis Dimension" as well - though it's basically the same as the 200 Motels version minus the lyrics.

Don't have it either yet, but I wonder if the above photo really is from 1972? The drummer, even if I can't see his full face, looks more Aynsley than Jim Gordon to me. Which reminds me that I also suspect they used Flo & Eddie era shoots of FZ for Imaginary Diseases cover.

How would you know whether that's the face of a drummer? Is that white thingy a drumstick?

Too much to choose from!

After 2 complete listenings, I'd have to cautiously say I like the last cut the best - - Varient One Processional March. It contains the only "new" compostion on the album in the first half of the song, before it breaks into Regyptian Strut.

This is one of those albums Frank had all the time: no bad cuts, no soft spots, not a speck of cereal.

Jim Gordon - 1978


Didnt he kill his mother and get sent to the big house? Kill himself too? I thought someone mentioned that a while back.

In the late 1970s, Gordon complained of hearing voices in his head. He was later diagnosed with acute paranoid schizophrenia, which had been worsened by a cocaine addiction. By 1981, this situation ended his music career.

On 3 June 1983, Gordon bludgeoned his mother with a hammer and then stabbed her to death with a butcher's knife. In May 1984 he was sentenced to sixteen years to life in prison. He has served his sentence at the California Men's Colony in San Luis Obispo, Atascadero State Hospital in Atascadero, and the State Medical Corrections Facility in Vacaville. He is still incarcerated.

good oh wiki

It took a very long time for me to decide. I've finally made my choice.

The Grand Wazoo (Think It Over)

The song really swings, and it seems as though the players are having a fun time with this one.

Big Swifty rules, too, and I could have voted for that one, instead.

My initial vote was made after only a couple of listens. But I think my vote is slowly drifting towards Greggary Peccary 3rd Movement nowadays.

Approximate does it for me.

The drummer on the picture is indeed Aynsley Dunbar and is from the Paris Gaumont 15 december 1970 concert. Aynsley was always sitting next to Zappa on his right at the 1970 concerts. Same shirt, same microphones, Marshall amp in the back and even the same mic-wire wrinkle :D .

This is from the Paris Gaumont video 1970

The pictures below are from from Berlin september 15 1972, no drummer in sight. (from my scrapbooks)

And on the 1972 tour used a total different Gibson guitar:

The Hague september 17 1972

Your suspicion could be right. The Imaginary Disease pictures were also used for the promo leaflets of the Hot Rats Orchestra concert september 17 1972 in the Hague Holland (which was the first Zappa concert I saw). The hair is much longer and resambles the hair seen on the Just Another Band From La album.

From my scrapbooks:
