Additional Notes: And here we have one of the final missing "signature tunes" of Zappa's personal discretion, one of his many solo vehicles performed live. First introduced as a set of chords in some late '74 Mothers performances, Zappa tweezed the composition and fleshed it out by late '75, recording it in the studio for the "Night of the Iron Sausage" double LP (later spliced down to what was later known as Zoot Allures). He then immediately put it on the backbruner, rarely touching it live until the 1981-82 tours, where he resurrected it as a standard until 1984, where only on the Last Tour were there some sporadic performances, the last known being June 7th 1988.
