Lumpy Gravy Part 1: Section 4
Back to Timeline
This theme is one that Zappa would return to several times throughout his career. This concept is not entirely uncommon in Zappa’s output, as we can see that an early song such as The Duke of Prunes (from Absolutely Free) appears on four additional Zappa albums. The theme would later be titled Oh No and resurfaces on 1970’s Weasels Ripped My Flesh, however on the later release it would appear with lyrics attached
 The subsequent albums that Duke of Prunes occurs are Mothermania (1969), The Old Masters—Box 1 (1984), Orchestral Favorites (1979), and Läther (1996).
