Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Ship Arriving Too Late:
Meridian Arts Ensemble is a brass quintet + drummer that covers Zappa & Beefheart among others. They do a "suite" where they segue from Peaches en Regalia to Let's Make the Water Turn Black to Oh No to Igor's Boogie, Eat that Question & Enchidna's Arf.
They make it work so well that I had no idea these were separate pieces from different albums & eras until I started hunting down Zappa beyond Apostrophe & Absolutely Free.
The SNL "Peaches" was terrific. Great link!
