The ol' memory's not what it used to be, and it seems like every time I try to recall where a particular solo on a particular official release comes from I have to end up bouncing around from site to site - namely here and Román's fabulous Information Is Not Knowledge - trying to refresh my memory for where to find what.

So, for those of you who might find a use for such a thing, here is a quick list of FZ solos with links to the concerts from whence they came. This will be a living list, so feel free to post updates/corrections/criticism/ridicule/etc. below.

Note: for the purposes of this thread, I am focusing on (1) solos extracted from concerts and released "out of context" as separate compositions (see SUNPYG), (2) xenochronized* solos (see Joe's Garage) and (3) tracks pieced together from multiple sources (see Drowning Witch). None of this is new information - I'm just trying to compile it in one place.

*Xenochrony: For those unfamiliar with the nakkin', this be the nakkin':

Frank Zappa wrote:
Well, a classic "xenochrony" piece would be "Rubber Shirt", which is a song on the SHEIK YERBOUTI album. It takes a drum set part that was added to a song at one tempo. The drummer was instructed to play along with this one particular thing in a certain time signature, eleven-four, and that drum set part was extracted like a little piece of DNA from that master tape and put over here into this little cubicle. And then the bass part, which was designed to play along with another song at another speed, another rate in another time signature, four-four, that was removed from that master tape and put over here, and then the two were sandwiched together. And so the musical result is the result of two musicians, who were never in the same room at the same time, playing at two different rates in two different moods for two different purposes, when blended together, yielding a third result which is musical and synchronizes in a strange way. That's xenochrony. And I've done that on a number of tracks. [click here for the full interview - this is from part 7]

The small print: obnoxiously huge piles of thanks to Román at IINK, amnesiavivace for his ongoing work on The Catalogue, pbuzby, ZappaPenguin and Flambay for various clarifications and general assistance, and you for having the good sense to read tiny little text like this.
