Remember, those were still in the days preceding "Guitar Godhood", that shit hadn't set in yet.

I think "Transylvania Boogie" as it exists on Chunga's Revenge (far cry from the AOTT/RTV1 incarnation fer shure) could be added to that list. This was one of FZ' earliest attempt to create not just a long solo, but the kind of guitar based composition that would fit right on the Guitar series, a la "Five Five Five" and "Sexual Harassment in the Workplace". It's also the first solo-based composition that relies neither on tape speed trickery nor weird percussion overdubs/framings.
Whups! Escaped my attention.
