Frank Zappa - Hot Rats Classic Records 200 Gram

by Classic Records

$59.99
Mastered and cut from the original analog master tape by Bernie Grundman, supervised by Gail Zappa   After releasing a "mother lode of Mothers" (of Invention) classics, by 1969 leader Frank Zappa was ready to break through other musical barriers that were still holding popular music in a conservative headlock. Being one if not the first album to be recorded using 16 tracks (twice the number being used at the time on both sides of the Atlantic), Hot Rats became a leading edge in both modern recording technology and the evolution of jazz/rock-fusion.   Mostly instrumental, it features six original compositions; three loose jam pieces, the remainder being tight ensemble arrangements. Some of the finest players around come together in varying combinations, all-the-while showcasing FZ's guitar virtuosity. Among others, Lowell George of Little Feat fame lends guitar, jazz violinists extraordinaire Don "Sugarcane" Harris and Jean-Luc Ponty plus fellow Mother Ian Underwood's keyboard and woodwind work, complete the leader's advanced vision. Mastered and cut directly from the original analog master tape by Bernie Grundman under the supervision of Gail Zappa.  1. Peaches en Regalia 2. Willie the Pimp 3. Son of Mr. Green Genes 4.
