For Elsie - (1987)

For Elsie is based on a folk tune that was popularized by Beethoven with his Für Elise. Why The Residents picked it up is unknown, but they recorded this 30-minute version in 1987. After the first CUBE E European tour, the band returned to San Francisco and performed a series of shows, ending with Cube NYE on New Year's Eve, 1989. Each member of the audience was given a goody bag which included the For Elsie CD. An edited version also appeared on a one-sided LP. The version on CD runs ten minutes longer than the vinyl.
