(Hot Rats - desert island disc)


As a companion piece to this weeks Newstalgia Pop Chronicles, I thought I would include a cut from one of my favorite Frank Zappa albums. It was hard picking which one. The thing about the music of Frank Zappa is there is no shortage of memorable albums and tracks; you could spend weeks. So it really boiled down to the blindfold test - toss a bunch of albums on a table and pick one blindfolded. And this one won the toss.

So tonight it's Peaches en Regalia off Hot Rats, an album I have a special fondness for because I was working (briefly) with Straight/Bizarre Records at the time and everybody was excited when this one was released.

I still am.
