Does anyone know if any of Tripp's pre Mothers work was recorded and released?
I know he perfomed with Cage for a period and did orchestral work and thought it would be great to hear him on some recordings.

Does anyone know?

So I guess that means that there was nothing with him on before 'Cruising.....'
That's a shame

I don't know anything about Jefferson Airplane but looking at the album on Wikipedia, there was some kind of extra material added to the recent CD release and Zappa's Would you like a Snack was added so it's obviously something to do with that.

I fancy a snack too so I'm going to go and eat a bowl of porridge "....la la la la"

That's funny considering Zappa hated Jefferson Airplane and their groovy minor chord changes.

that's right, although it's not the 'would you like a snack?' we're used to (from '200 motels').
the track is credited to zappa/slick. it sounds like slick is improvising the lyrics more or less.
and the players are: slick, zappa, tripp, ian underwood & don preston. it's a novelty track, really. but, kinda fun.

Does Frank actually play on the track? I did a quick web-search, and found him listed as "leader" (conductor?), but nothing that says he makes any sound patterens on it.
I'm enough of a fan to buy the CD for one song with Zappa on it, but not quite enough of a fan to buy it just because he was in the building.

no, I don't think zappa actually plays on it.
at least not guitar. there's only a personnel line-up listed, nothing about who plays what.*

edit: *well, yeah, the iink-site has fz listed as leader, just like you mentioned.

Thank you, L.G.
(I always look forward to a week where I don't spend any money on things Zappa.) :wink:
