This is an upgrade to the version currently seeded here: http://www.zappateers.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=10028 This version comes from a tape given to Drew by Steve Hecht. Frank was a genius, but he was also terribly touchy; I would have been flattered by such a parody! Read more of it here: http://www.united-mutations.com/c/jim_cox_random_notes.htm

Credits:
Thanks to Steve Hecht for the source tape!
Thanks to Drew51 for collecting and transfering!
Thanks to Flambay for speed correcting!

Enjoy !!

Thank you very much for this upgrade, too bad Frank could be so susceptible, specially if we consider how he could be rude and sarcastic himself to other people in his own songs. By the way, hard to say if there is no guitar at all in the song, but to me the solo is clearly played on keyboards.

Definitely real if you ask me. I haven't heard any synth from that era that could emulate a guitar like that.

I mentioned this song to Chad Wackerman last month after a master class he did at The Drummer's Collective. He opened by playing to a pre-recorded track with Allan Holdsworth on guitar & Jim Cox on keys. I caught that first piece but then had classes to teach so I came back as he was packing up & held up my ipod with "Frankie's In Town" cued up and asked if it was the same Jim Cox. He was surprised I had a copy, asked where i got it from and "foo-foo'ed" the idea that Jim had used it as an audition piece and that Frank was upset when he heard it. Chad said, as a matter of fact, that Jim had written it as a gift for him (Chad, that is). He also said that Patitucci & Ferraro played on it. Didn't mention Mike Miller, but I recall reading somewhere that Jim played all the "guitar" parts on the keys.

Anyway, thanks a bunch for the upgrade on this. I always get a kick when I hear it. A lot of fun.

Nice, an oldie but goodie. Thanks for the story zeeker. Interesting, I never realized it was Ferraro on drums, he's been doing drums and percussion for the Meridian Arts Ensemble for many years now.

This is very cool, albeit not too original. It's certainly better than Al Yancowic, though. Thanks!

Thanks for seeding for this latecomer. A much needed upgrade to my tired old mp3 copy.

That Yankovic track was horrid, by the way.
