Here's my contribution: Serious Music

From the info file: "Lineage Sony T1 turntable > Kenwood 5090R > SB Audigy > SoundForge 7.0 > Flac Frontend lev.6 > flac" ripper unknown. Thanks, whoever you are.

Info file:
Lineage Sony T1 turntable > Kenwood 5090R > SB Audigy > SoundForge 7.0 > Flac Frontend lev.6 > flac

Serious Music (LP)
* "A Zappa Affair" orchestral concert, Zellerbach Auditorium, UC Berkeley, 16-Jun-1984
* The World's Greatest Sinner film excerpt
* Basement 1978
* Studio 1972

Length: ~52 min
Sound quality: FM radio A / Soundboard? (claims "digitally remastered")
Label: ICA Masterworks Oct 31 (original vinyl)

Musicians: various

1. The World's Greatest Sinner (11:54)
2. Revenge of the Knick-Knack People (6:20) [extended version]
3. RDNZL (4:08) [longer edit of the Lost Episodes version]
4. Inca Roads (3:56) [slightly longer edit of the Lost Episodes version]

5. Sinister Footwear (26:54)

Track 1 is an excerpt from the film THE WORLD'S GREATEST SINNER that Zappa scored in 1961 - the film music was played by the Pomona Valley Symphony Orchestra conducted by Fred E Graff, recorded at Chaffey College, and the parts of Satan (the narrator) and Clarence "God" Hilliard were played by Paul Frees and Timothy A. Carey, respectively.
Track 2 is a longer version of the ballet for piano, percussion and tape effects that appears as a bonus track on Lšther.
Tracks 3-4 are the versions on The Lost Episodes (although the cover boasts "WAZOO"), but these edits are a bit longer: "RDNZL" is about 04:11 (22 seconds longer than on The Lost Episodes), and the fade-out in "Inca Roads" is a couple of seconds longer, too. By the way, the Japanese CD re-issue calls this an "official unreleased album", which it is not. The original vinyl was released in 1984.
Track 5, the ballet "Sinister Footwear", was recorded at the "A Zappa Affair" concert at the Zellerbach Auditorium at UC Berkeley. It was played by the Berkely Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Kent Nagano. This is the only time "Sinister Footwear" has been performed in its entirety, and Zappa was most unhappy with the results. The orchestra plays it very, very slowly. The ballet consisted of giant puppets with dancers inside them. It is in three movements and 21 parts (averaging 7 parts per movement). The parts are named as follows:

1: Jake Who Designs It
2: Somewhere in New Jersey Where They Make Them
3: Illegal Aliens on a Lunch Break
4: At the Catering Truck
5: Jake Eats a Molded Jello Salad
6: Jake's Secretary
7: Illegal Aliens Work Slower in the Afternoon
8: Jake's Secretary Reads Her Magazine
9: Illegal Aliens Want to Go Home
10: Jake's Secretary Eats Cottage Cheese
11: Ugly Shoes on the Assembly Line
12: What You Think You Look Like When You're Wearing Them
13: Sometimes They Make You Walk Funny
14: Other People Pretend Not to Notice
15: Sometimes You Have to Take Them Off for a Minute
16: Then You Put Them Back On Because You Think They Look So Good on You
17: Children Can Also Have Ugly Shoes
18: The Foot Doctor Says You Might Need an Operation
19: But You're Going to Wear Them Anyway
20: Everybody Has a Pair Somewhere
21: A Place You Can Go When You've Got Them On
(There was for a while thought to be an unknown bootleg called "Orchestral Madness" with some of this material, but it has now been shown that it was just a case of Serious Music having a sticker on the cover saying "Orchestral Madness". There is a Son of Serious Music, though.)end of info file

I downloaded this a few years ago through openbittorrent, as well as Son of Serious Music, originally posted on the Zappateers tracker here http://www.zappateers.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=10844. The lineage is the same for both boots.

The flacs have not been altered in any way, other than to rename them in accordance with Zappateers Seeding Conventions. The info.txt file has been slightly edited (Frontend was spelled Fronted, and the track names didn't line up as a straight column).

I created a fingerprint of the flacs using xACT:

Serious Music - 01 The World's Greatest Sinner.flac:58458fdecb00b6679a26eae9e05965ca
Serious Music - 02 Revenge of the Knick-Knack People.flac:147972717ea9d9a014e29f57a08a1f70
Serious Music - 03 RDNZL.flac:a582413e393a95de4677e4635c218cec
Serious Music - 04 Inca Roads.flac:35435a83de162c5c388c1b85ea04a8e1
Serious Music - 05 Sinister Footwear.flac:34761e7589eb3fc34f490e7e6c1e79c0

All verified "OK"

I have played this album as flacs using Cog and VLC, no problems.

I have decoded the flacs using xACT to create aiff files so I could burn a cd. Works fine. Sounds good.

There is a little surprise at the beginning of Inca Roads, probably known to some of you freaks, but I don't remember hearing it before. It's been a while since I listened to it.

Album Artwork included

Some more information here http://www.lukpac.org/~handmade/patio/bootlegs/orchestral_boots.html#seriousmusic, and here http://www.afka.net/Scrapbook/aza.htm

This is my first time posting a torrent, so any criticism, good or bad is welcome. Intervention from administrators is welcome also, if necessary. If you want to flame me, please do it as a PM. You'll be easier to ignore that way.

Thanks to The Evil Prince for encouraging me to go ahead with this, and for your help. Zappateers! rasta

Thanks!

BTW, does anyone know what are the original sources for tracks 1-4 of this boot and if those are available on the tracker in any other form?

And sped-up conducted improv from the Mothers circa '69.

FZ ditched the guitar solo on the official release.

Look through this subforum.

"Knick-Knack People" is also in the Lšther-Era Outtakes in a shorter version (not the same edit as on the official Lšther bonus track).
