Well I've heard it again and I think we can find very characteristic traces of Zappa music (or at least heavy influence):<br><br>- In the INTRO: it begins with an accordeon and quickly a bass clarinet sound joins in, then the half piano/keyboard couterpoint that comes on about 15 secs has a very Zappaesque quality, and more about the way it finnishes.<br><br>-Then the second theme commes in. It has a very cool break in 1:08 min.<br><br>The percursion on the track is Indian, it mixes eastern and wester music. Then the events before and at 2:08 min are very Zappa to my ears...<br><br>ARF ;D

Is that your opinion or is it a fact? ::)

[font=arial]Dug this thread up as I've only just found this track. Am sort of not sure what to think - is it an early FZ synclavier piece cos it's not a mega-multi-layered piece (and as MTF states his latter work was very condensed) or is it a fake? As there's been no official answer - or does Jimmie's end the discussion dead (even though it only says "fake" with 2 boxes with X in 'em ) I'm still in two minds. I'd love to think it was genuine...<br>Alas me, myself and Irene still think it's a nice piece of music.[/font]

So, has anyone found out what exactly this track is, or where it came from?

I am still kind of curious for more information on this. Hey Jimmie, do you say it is a fake based on your ears or any other source?

I know this probably doesn't really help with the authenticity issue, but Lakshmi is the name of a Hindu god. L. Shankar's first name is actually Lakshminarayana, which shows up again, weirdly, on the "Baby Snakes" DVD, when the "director" of the agency that wrote the "secret files" on the intro sequence signs his/her/its name "Lakshminarayana Storch."

Since the internet has improved in the last few years, I think I can throw some little thing to help on solving this matter.

IS THIS FRANK ZAPPA OR NOT:

Doesn't sound like him. But I see your points about similarities (at least here and there). I just think it is too simplistic to be Frank. Also the ending is not very much in usual Zappa style (to much "ta-daaa", and it doesn't sound tongue in cheek).

But it could be fun to be surprised.....

I think it could be an early synclavier track. Some of the sounds/patches (whatever you call them) look like things on JFH and FZMTMOP.

EDIT: Unfortunately many contributions and input from other members were deleted one year ago in the crash/transition.

It's really hard to say without more information. My initial reaction is that it's probably not by FZ. But if it was quite early and not anywhere near completion, then I could maybe see it being by him.

It sounds to me like some experimentation he might have done around the time of producing Francesco Zappa. If he was immersed in that music for a period of time he may have been affected by it to some degree.

It could be FZ, as some of you already said, maybe an early synclavier work. After a few seconds there are some phrases that sound very similar to the bassline of "A Pound For A Brown".
But you're right, it also could be 1) a fake or 2) just a song not by FZ, but someone else (and so indeed no fake, but also no FZ tune...)

Maybe we'll never know. :roll:

Definitely not FZ. Listen closely, those are not synclavier samples we've heard on any other recordings and the mixing is totally wrong. (it was a pure digital process -- why would it be mixed so poorly behind the obviously analog accordion?)

Yeah I think you're right. The mixing is really shit, absolutely not typical for FZ. And the ending of the song is also not the kind of FZ-ending. So after a few listenings I'd also say: not FZ.
