Outstanding 38 page Ozalid copies of Zappa’s own handwritten score for the ‘Finale: Strictly Genteel’ from 200 Motels utilized by The Mothers of Invention and the London Royal Philharmonic during the recording of 200 Motels in February 1971, 12.75 x 20. Labeled on the first page, “Finale: Strictly Genteel,” manuscript provides music and lyrics to the final act for the chorus, violins, pianos, drums, saxophones, and other musical instruments. In fine condition. The manuscripts have been authenticated by David Ocker, Zappa's music copyist from 1977-84. Though various ozalid copies, such as these, of Zappa's handwritten and scored manuscripts have appeared in the marketplace, very rarely do actual original manuscripts in Zappa's hand find their way to auction. This manuscript comes from the collection of Marty Perellis, Zappa's road manager during the time. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
