Remington Electric Razor

Various live
Various studio
Remington Electric Razor is a collection of one-of-a-kind outtakes that originate from Zappa himself. They were either stolen from him, or were leaked through a cohort. Most of the songs are exclusive to this record and are still essential, two songs appeared years later in the Stage series. It is unknown if the songs on this album were meant for a specific project, or if Zappa mixed them for fun or for some other purpose. [One guy claimed he had a copy with "test pressing" written on the labels, but this has not been verified - Ed.] Apocrypha used most of the songs from this record.

Length: 31:50
Sound quality: Soundboard / various
Matrix: ML-001 (also L-6150)

There were at least two versions of this.

1. Freak Me Out, Frank
2. Jumbo, Go Away [05:33]
3. Moe's Vacation [04:12]
4. The Black Page #2 [03:01] [not listed]
5. Dong Work for Yuda [03:05] [a capella version]

6. Tricky Dicky [05:49] ["Dickie's Such an Asshole"]
7. Nite Owl [02:18] [Tony Allen]
8. My Name is Fritz [02:33]
9. Interview [02:59] ["What's the Name of Your Group?"]
10. I Can't Get Me No Satisfaction [01:19]
11. Remington Electric Razor [01:01]

Track 1 is the bit that appears on Stage #1 just before "Ruthie-Ruthie" (Passaic, New Jersey - November 8, 1974).
Track 2 is a soundboard from Munich 31-Mar-1979 (early show).
Tracks 3-4 are live in Poughkeepsie, New York, 21-Sep-1978 (parts also appear on Project/Object).
Track 5 is from an unknown concert in February 1977. Almost certainly a Zappa mix leaked by a band member. From JWB:
There is a short dialogue by John Smothers right before this track, and there is another dialoge by Frank right after the track. (They are edited out on Apocrypha.) They are both talking about the song "Dong Work", and the origin is unknown. Sounds like it's stolen from a Zappa project, or from an unsurfaced television or radio broadcast.

Track 6 is the Stage #3 version - without George Duke's solo.
Track 7 is from the late show in Santa Monica on 11-Dec-1980 - a soundboard recording.
Track 8 is an excerpt from "German Lunch" on Stage #5, but as the Stage version is heavily edited, this contains some additional material. The full, unedited recording has been issued as a bootleg single.
Track 9 is an out-take from 200 Motels; its real title is "What's the Name of Your Group?".
Track 10 is from the late show in Stoneybrook on 15-Oct-1978, probably - an improvisation, from "A Pound for a Brown on the Bus", where a band member sings "I can't get me no ... satisfaction" over kind of a punk vamp.
Track 11, the title track, is the famous one - a late 1960s commercial for Remington electric razors, which was never used: a speeded-up, multi-tracked Linda Ronstadt and a Zappa saying that the lectric razor "cleans you, thrills you ... may even keep you from getting busted".

After listening through this collection I must say it's now one of my favourites!
Not just the sound, but the material is top notch, rare and very well executed live magic.

comment on the "interview" : I think they are singing on top of "A pound for a brown".

thanx for this!

Jon Naurin has said that this version of Dong Work is edited together from the London Feb '77 shows (like the Lather versions of Chin and Broken Hearts).

BTW, Barfko Swill used to (still does?) sell the drum part for a piece called "What's The Name Of Your Group?"

I hadn't heard the rem-ing-ton e-lec-tric ra-zor ad for quite some time, so a real treat. Never knew taht was Linda Ronstadt in there. Never woulda guessed. But she did live out in lower Topanga canyon in those days . . .
I'm gonna be singing that a capella dong work in the kitchen now fer weeks. the trick will be to see if I can get all the lesbians at work to sing along. laughhard
and these versions are so incredibly clean
thank you
