Look at my other posting. It does not source anything. One would expect it
to source any of the files mentioned, but it doesn't.

  We all came out to Montreux           Frank Zappa and the Mothers
 On the Lake Geneva shoreline           Were at the best place around
To make records with a mobile           But some stupid with a flare gun
     We didn't have much time           Burned the place to the ground
