A remake/remodel from a sloppy attempt at this five years ago. Just had the itch to do it over. Originally I used a royalty free backing. This time it's all original with a new arrangement. Hopefully you'll see some of the humor in it. Thanks for listening. From Zappa's Hot Rats album from 1969. One of his most commercially successful albums, especially in England.

Wonderfully and humorously twisted, as anything Zappa should be. I can hear that a lot of work went into this -- and it pays off. Great fun! (And, BTW, the purple hat rocks.)

Hots Rats is probably one of the top 3 records of my youth. Captain Beefheart and Zappa. There is a riff somewhere in the middle that I rigged up a tape recorder to play whenever I entered my bedroom and switched on the light. It was very empowering. My Mom was hard of hearing so she didn't mind.

Now you got me missing Frank and the Good captain again. This really is an ambitious project you took on. Like the vocals and the arrangement as well.

I had the good fortune to see Zappa live in Glasgow 1979- never forgot that gig.
You capture the spirit of the man and the band
Kudos
