Like In the Autumn of My Madness, this song was recorded at a Manhattan night-club, the Bottom Line, where the Ed Palermo Big Band has a regular engagement playing the music of Frank Zappa.

The audience DAT from this live performance on 28 September 2001 has long gone missing,
so we have mastered this track from an mp3 that was luckily preserved.
