Frank Zappa-Hot Rats

Frank Zappa Hot Rats:

A series of jazz-rock masterpieces and a solid rocker with a guest appearance from Captain Beefheart. Zappa composes pieces that touch on a variety of moods and textures often transitioning between various themes quickly, but never in a way that jars the listener. His and his backing bands playing is jaw-droppingly good. The jazz-rock pieces will truly take you somewhere else. The one off with Captain Beefheart has a couple minutes of the Captains wailing followed by Zappa going on an extended mutant blues solo. Beyond cool.
