Notes

Parts are distorted: track 01, track 06 (very distorted), track 10 & 11 (very distorted).
tape flip is between track 06 and track 07.

More notes

Most of this rehearsals (the not distorted one) are on "Portuguese Lunar Landing", a sort of short satirical rock opera that FZ performed on stage only during the Bongo Fury tour and never released on official stuff. The '81 band really didn't know this stuff. Recommended to true maniacs only! Btw, the initial main theme of the song reminds me the music of a (very) old italian jingle for a coffee brand, I bet Zappa (and the jingle too) took inspiration from some popular music, spanish or south american, I don't know. More speculations on this strange stuff are really welcome!

Pick Me is interesting. On Tinseltown Rebellion there is a big shift in tempo at "Vinnie goes bareback" because FZ edited from 12/5/80 to 10/17/80. At this rehearsal we can hear FZ trying to get the live band to make the same tempo shift, which was never done onstage.
