Joe's Domage

The Album

John Swenson, "Zappa Returns!," Stereophile, November, 2008

"Our Corsage series, they're just random—just examples of stuff that Frank had, intact," says Gail. "We don't do anything to them, we didn't try to construct them in any way. There was this one rehearsal tape that Frank carried around with him on the road, and it was a rehearsal of members of the Wazoo band. That's Joe's Domage."

9. Another Whole Melodic Section

Ken Walter, October 10, 2004

The tune labeled "Another Whole Melodic Section" is actually the tune known as "Interlude" to collectors, performed by the MOI in 1969 and the Hot Rats band.

Jon Naurin

A quite good little piece of music, played in 1969 (it opens up one of the Toronto shows) and by the Hot Rats band in 1970 (can be heard on the "Hot Rats at the Olympic" bootleg, aka "Sharleena"). [...] (can be heard on Apycrypha as well, BTW).
