Holy shit! I've never heard that. One listen and I agree it's one of his greatest solos. Thank you.

We had a tournament. Son Of Orange County won. It's the best by winning.

Yo' Mama from SY is great, and there are some sick other live versions out there, as well.

I still think a solo which was on an acetate when FZ prepared the 10 LP boxset at the end of the 1960's. It later turned up bootlegged on Necessity is .. bootleg on Mudshark just before ..It sounds like this.. I had 2 copies of the bootleg, when I met a very important person I gave them a copy and placed a chalk mark at the appropriate place! I want this rather than harmonica fun.

Man, that Sleep Dirt sound check is gorgeous! Too bad a concert version didn't make it on one of the albums.

I'm partial to FZ's delicate playing so some of my favorites are Pink Napkins, While You Were Out, and Treacherous Cretins. Shut Up and Play Some More is probably my number one.

For down n dirty I'll take Pinocchio's Furniture.

For down and dirty I'll take Any Downers from 1975. The You Are What You Is version is completely inferior.

I am particularly taken by 'Waltz' found in amongst Paul Buff's archive, which is a solo over tracks FZ laid down. I believe it was found on an acetate.

Hard to pick a number one, but AMONG my favourites are: Bowling On Charen, Friendly Little Finger, Rat Tomago, Inca Roads and St.Etienne... :twisted:

For me, 'Rat Tomago' kills everything else FZ has ever done.

Rat Tomago is amazing, really awesome. Bowling on Charen has just blown me away, first time I have heard it.

I love all the solos on Hot Rats, especially Willie The Pimp but I think my favorite may be Po-Jama People at the moment.

St Etienne is truly beautiful. I always forget about that one.

How do you feel about the version on the Baby Snakes movie? It is by far my favorite, Zappa was killing it in 77.

Listening to lots of What's New In Baltimore recently. Really beautiful, especially the first few notes when the guitar kicks in.

Occam's razor springs to mind.

I think his most visceral solo could be Zomby Woof, it sounds like stabbing. I love it, it is just gnarly.

The uncut version from the Berlin 1978 show is even better...
