HEADS OR TAILS - SPEEDY SPENDER
Here's another fine addition to The Others Of Invention (artists performing the music of Frank Zappa).
Guitar duo Heads Or Tails? included both 'Montana' and 'Blessed Relief' on their "Speedy Spender" album.
Adalbert Dörsam and Bernd Hoffmann sure know their way around the guitar. The album is nice, but the Zappa pieces are excellent. The seven plus minute version of 'Montana' includes the parlando / vocal part and includes a superb solo. Very Zappa inspired. Great arrangement.
'Blessed Relief' clocks at 03:50 and is very impressive as well.
I'm not sure about the year of release, but 1987 would be my best guess.
If you can find the album, you shouldn't hesitate.
