The Hot Rats Sessions di Frank Zappa

Frank Zappa. Per celebrare il 50esimo anniversario di Hot Rats di Frank  – pubblicato il 10 ottobre del 1969 – a breve una ristampa di sei dischi che raccoglie  le composizioni registrate in studio nel luglio dello stesso anno, tra cui “parecchi mix insoliti, chicche tenute in cassaforte e tracce inedite”, secondo il comunicato diramato. The Hot red Session sarà disponibile in un box set da 6 cd e in digitale, accompagnata da un libro di 28 pagine con immagini inedite dalle sessioni di registrazione di Bill Gubbins.

I primi quattro dischi di Frank Zappa

I primi quattro dischi includono le sessioni in studio, che mostrano il processo creativo dietro pezzi come Peaches En Regalia, It Must Be a Camel e il featuring con Captain Beefheart Willie the Pimp, oltre a brani live come Transition e Natasha.

Il quinto e il sesto disco riguardano il remix digitale del 1987 di Hot Rats con pubblicità radiofoniche, e molto altro ancora. Insieme al cofanetto, verrà ripubblicato, in vinile 180 grammi rosa, anche il disco originale e un’edizione limitata del 10″ Picture disc Peaches In Regalia EP.
