the funny thing is, EVERYONE knows the first chorus "O fortuna". but no one seems familiar with the rest of the work, which is sad because the rest of it is even better! my favorite is the chorus that comes right AFTER the ridiculously famous "O fortuna".
Thanks vinganca. I can't wait for this weekend to listen to the whole thing at one sitting. I know little or nothing about this but i will be listening and looking for the 2nd chorus you mentioned as your favorite. Thanks again.

2 LZ faves. Wish they wd.'ve done the chorus at least twice. Love it.
Somehow or other I bought and listened to (heavily) LZ II and then discovered LZ I and repeated the process. This was my first taste really of blues (such as it was with them) but I really liked Communication Breakdown and Your Time is Gonna Come, not to mention Living Loving Maid ( 1 and 2 respectively). Their experimental world music stuff wasn't to my taste.
Zappa was sarcastic and cynical, yet so often I've found his observations to be sound. I admire his talent and his intelligence and also feel sorry for him all at the same time. Weird admixture, no doubt, but I feel he was'nt a very happy person. He cd. be funny, tho.
