A short, bombastic, and playful track from the 1972 LP The Grand Wazoo, "Cletus Awreetus-Awrightus" sounds like a second helping of "Peaches en Regalia." Like "Peaches en Regalia," it was released as a single (Bizarre, 1972), backed with the jazzy "Eat That Question." George Duke gets a spotlight as a mad arpeggio-addicted pianist. The title is the name of the Funky Emperor in the story printed on the LP sleeve. He is the character holding the "mystery horn" in the cover artwork.
