Closest to that I can think of is The End by The Doors "Father?" "Yes son?" "I want to kill you".

Btw, this is inspired but incorrectly interpreted from the original poem Oedipus Rex by Sophocles. This version is quite dramatic but has an element of psychotic premeditation absent from the source.


True, that's always bothered me about the so-called Oedipus Complex -- in the original work, the guy kills his father and marries his mother unknowingly, and then feels like crap when he finds out.  Common usage of the term has been applied to knowingly falling in love with your mother.  Understandable, but misleading.

Yes, that's the dialogue at the beginning of Regyptian Strut, the first track on Lšther.

WOW...It is the one...Feel free to tell how you've found it!


It is rare on the net (a youtube link, now gone?, must have been my first hearing of it), but there's at least a link: won't psys and great poets as talented as Morrisson bow down to it...

I believe that the Zappa family spends a lot of time looking for videos uploaded to Youtube without their consent, and has them removed.  So something you see there today may not be there tomorrow.

At the present, I have 35 Zappa LP'S, my least visited albums are Sheik Yerboutie, the Joe's Garage trilogy, and You Are What You Is, oh, and 200 Motels. Definitely some great music and singing to be found, but not fully to my tastes. I love Tinsel Town Rebellion a lot though, and a few after that. Most eartime is spent with his '67-'77 albums nevertheless.

Roxy By Proxy is great!!!!
 
As I mentioned yesterday, Ruth Underwood wrote extensive liner notes describing intricate detail as to what she and the other band members were doing within the pieces,  giving unusually deep insight as to what was going on on stage.
 
The music itself is amazing.  While some titles are the same as the Roxy and Elsewhere album, it appears that, for the most part each is from another show (R&E came from 2 Roxy shows, and "elsewhere").  Pieces pop up here and there that sound like sections spliced in on the heavily produced and overdubbed R&E, but no full tracks are duplicated.
 
"Inca Roads" is somewhere between the more free-form version released previously (I forget which album it was on) and the studio version on OSFA.
 
The Uncle Meat and King Kong medleys are astounding, and "Cheepnis" is performed first as a percussion only piece, giving us a nice view of the basics of the songs, before the full version is performed. 
Trust me. I know what I'm doing.
