The best musical part (1st 2 minutes) has been excised. I goes straight into the fur-trapper narrative. This is weird. That 2 minutes is one of the top 20 Zappa segments. The fur-trapper part is great, but...

You pay money for real Zappa, and it's worse than the youTube version.

Did Z do this? It's certainly no accident; it's been professionally edited out. What gives?

I don't do iTunes, so I don't know exactly what you mean. However:

"Don't Eat The Yellow Snow" is 2:07 long. The entire Yellow Snow suite (4 songs) is 10:54.

My guess is that you downloaded the second song; "Nanook Rubs It."

To avoid this problem in the future, buy the CD. Leave iTunes to Mariah Carey fans...

It's called 'Don't Eat the Yellow Snow' off Album 'Strictly Commercial'.

Maybe I'm not paying attention to all the variations that have been released. I listened again, and there slightly more than I remembered to the iTunes. It goes up to around

'under my boots and around my toes...

and then neatly into

and my Mama cried...'

So I guess that's how the 'Strictly Commercial' album goes.

But you can't preview an entire iTune. Oh well.

Love that opening couple of minutes, the whole thing, many little hooks. I like the beautifully timed, delicately reverbed 'Ohh...!', nicely adjusted volume, punctuating after '100 degrees below zeero...'
