I know, I too have it. Short songs were in vogue back then, remember The Residents Commercial Album. A legendary Norwegian DJ played Miniatures, The Commercial Album and some ditties by Moondog in the same show. Moondog deserves a honorary mention here as well, btw. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zL1F4SF8d10 And Zappa's Big Squeeze 8)
