Following Lumpy Gravy, as we shall see, Zappa employed the variation-rondo idea to organize music for two more albums: Uncle Meat (April 1969) and Burnt Weeny Sandwich (February 1970).
Considering this evidence, a more likely source is the Suite from Histoire du soldat, with its recurring "Soldier's March." Not only did The Mothers and their successors perform excerpts from this Work, (72) but Zappa used a similar instrumentation for "Igor's Boogie" on Burnt Weeny Sandwich, discussed below.
(76) Accompanying Zappa's photos on Lumpy Gravy and We're Only In It For The Money are cartoon balloons reading, respectively, "IS THIS PHASE 2 OF: WE'RE ONLY IN IT FOR THE MONEY?" and "IS THIS PHASE ONE OF LUMPY GRAVY?" Cal Shenkel's collages of found objects also put a common visual stamp on the album art, particularly Uncle Meat and Burnt Weeny Sandwich. (77) The Mothers' fictional groupie, Suzy Creamcheese, is mentioned on Freak Out!, Absolutely Free, and Uncle Meat.
(83) Adjusting his aims to prevailing commercial realities, he released some of this material in February 1970 as a single LP, Burnt Weeny Sandwich. If his press statement about the break-up were not enough, the structure of this album--based once again on the variation principle (see Example 5)--proves that Zappa had not yet exhausted his attempts to cross-pollinate rock and contemporary art music.
The third varied component of Burnt Weeny Sandwich, side one, involves Zappa's blues-oriented guitar solos over two-chord ostinatos, both evidently recorded live.
After releasing Burnt Weeny Sandwich, Zappa abandoned the idea of organizing his albums along abstract formal lines, and with it his ideal of fusing modern music with rock.
