The London Cab Tape

Frank Zappa & the Mothers

Howard: This fucking guy is flipped out, man! I'll be locked up!

?: Who, me . . . ?

Yeah, you too!

?: It was anti-semitic of me to bring it up

?: Why, you don't like Jews, man?

?: Let me make it perfectly clear, [...] I don't mind that you are Jew, stay out . . . Take your Bar Mitzvah man, and shove it

?: I never had a Bar Mitzvah

?: You ever had a Yamulka, man?

?: No, I wore one once, though . . .

?: I knew it

?: What's wrong? You don't like 'em, man? That was [...] my cowboy hat . . .

?: [...] Just keep it out of my way, man, I don't wanna see that Yamulka on stage ever . . .

?: Uh . . . well, I don't know, man, that'd be sorta neat, not in this group of course, but tomorrow

?: Alright, alright . . .

?: Howard Kaylan World!

?: The Yamulka

FZ: Ha ha ha!

: Dear Frank, thanks for paying a hundred twenty three dollars for my meal in Amsterdam, which I hated!

?: I mean it, man

?: I really enjoy playing in your little own ensemble

?: For a day or so

?: Thanks for bringing a little slice of sunshine into my life

?: Thanks for showing me how sh . . . shitty the music business could really be, I thought I knew

?: Thanks for make [...] worst bass player in the world

?: After six months with the Mothers I figured I've lost everything I've ever had
