Continuing the reissues, FZ’s classic "Hot Rats" has been released on 180-gram vinyl - cut directly from the original analog master tapes by Bernie Grundman! Recorded in 1969, Zappa's second solo album is widely known for its pioneering fusion of jazz and rock and contains one of his best known songs,“Peaches En Regalia.” Mostly an instrumental album, sans “Willie The Pimp” which features Captain Beefheart’s craggy vocals, the six-song LP is filled with complex musical passages, breathtaking playing and some beautifully melodic moments.
Here's Fattore Zeta with one of my favourite "Hot Rats" tunes, 'Little Umbrellas' !!
