All the tracks are the same lengths as the official release, so there's no special edits or anything on it [see exceptions below]. Just unique artwork. The disc itself is a CDR, but the top side with the FZ mustache was printed on the disc (not from a home printer.)

Lumpy Gravy (Excerpt—1984 UMRK Digital Remix) on Omorp is a three-minute excerpt from Part One.

Lumpy Gravy (Primordial): Mvt I—Sink Trap on Omorp is missing the studio chatter at the beginning.

disc 2

12. Flower Punk

The My Sharona Riff

Arthur Barrow, alt.fan.frank-zappa, November 13, 2004 (quoting his own letter to Barry Miles)

Every note that I played for Zappa in the studio was approved by or dictated by him. It was his idea to insert the Sharona riff. It happened to be a little ongoing joke at the time because I was a friend of the Knack's drummer, Bruce Gary. Frank had fun inserting that riff in several of his arrangements.

 

disc 3

1. How Did That Get In Here?

Liner notes:

Recorded on Sunday, 13 February 1967 at Capitol (Original multi-track masters are currently not in evidence.) This is an FZ construction. Small excerpts from this material appear in FZ's Masterwork, Lumpy Gravy. Source: 1/4″ stereo mixdown

The only track listed on the session sheets for the February 13, 1967 session (which was a Monday, not a Sunday) is called "Sunday." There are some more instruments heard on the album track than the ones listed on the sheets, so either they were overdubbed on another session or played by musicians not listed on the sheets.

Is it just me, or does the brass at 12:55-13:04 in How Did That Get In Here? sound like the beginning of Times Beach II on Yellow Shark?

John Cage's work has had an influence on Lumpy Gravy because of his theories of random happenings and, you know, take your chances and just let it happen and that'll be the, the musical composition.

11. "What The Fuck's Wrong With Her?"

13. Lonely Little Girl (Original Composition—Take 24)

Glenn Leonard, July 23, 2012

sounds like "theme from burnt weeny sandwich" is the same as the segment in "lonely little girl" from "lump money" d3 t13 2:25. certainly a different basic track but the same music to my ears with many overdubs or xenochrony added to bws.

14. "That Problem With Absolutely Free"

Liner notes

Interview, Mixed Media, Detroit, 13 November 1967.

 

23. Lonely Little Girl (Instrumental)

Charles Ulrich, February 8, 2015

Slowing the final guitar solo section down an octave makes it easier to notice that it starts with a musical quotation!

The first ten notes in the right channel are from the Absolutely Free arrangement of Plastic People. It's played on clavinet (harmonized on saxophone) at 0:25-0:29. It recurs at 1:12-1:21 and (with Roy singing another harmony part) at 2:17-2:22.

 

28. Lonely Little Girl—The Single

Charles Ulrich, September 28, 2014

How much is the saxophone tag on the single sped up? [...] Slowed down an octave [...] I really expect someone to start singing Love Of My Life. Is this the Cucamonga backing track?

Tan Mitsugu, September 29, 2014

I think so. It's really surprising, since I always thought the ending was at natural pitch!
